Universal Orlando unveils details of ‘monstrous’ Dark Universe

Universal Orlando has revealed details of classic and modern monsters featured in Dark Universe – one of the five immersive worlds in Universal Epic Universe opening in 2025.

Dark Universe will feature traditional characters such as Dracula, The Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s Monster and the Bride of Frankenstein alongside a new generation of monsters and characters, including Dr Victoria Frankenstein – the great-great-granddaughter of the infamous Henry Frankenstein.

Holidaymakers will venture through Darkmoor – the “ravaged village” within Dark Universe – where they can get made up to look like their favourite monsters and spin through the woods on a family coaster.
