Universal Globe and USF Arches

It’s only the beginning January, and I’m already overwhelmed with excitement for this year.

Here’s a glimpse at just some of what you can look forward to in 2016.

Skull Island King KongSkull Island: Reign of Kong Opens
The next saga in this iconic character’s story is coming to life in a HUGE new attraction this summer. You can see much of the attraction’s façade already from the walkways in Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The rising structure shows just how mammoth of an experience this will be.

The Incredible Hulk CoasterThe Incredible Hulk Coaster Returns
Universal  announced in August that one of America’s beloved coasters was going to be undergoing “new enhancements to its storyline, ride vehicles and overall experience.” Well, if you’re strolling around Marvel Super Hero Island, you’ll already start to see the ride coming back into shape.

Sapphire-Falls-RenderingLoews Sapphire Falls Resort Opens
Universal already made a few announcements about their newest on-site hotel opening this summer. I’ve sat in on a few marketing webinars and all I can say is it’s going to be beautiful!  I know I can’t wait to check out the new pool—the largest of all the hotels—and grab a drink in the Strong Water Tavern.

On top of all that, you’ve got Universal’s  incredible annual events and Universal CityWalk.

2016 is definitely going to be a year of non-stop excitement. And there’s probably even more to come.
