By now you have probably heard that Universal Orlando is opening a third gate: Epic Universe. This theme park will feature 5 all-new themed lands for guests to explore.

Among these is How To Train Your Dragon – Isle Of Berk. This land, based on the hit films featuring Hiccup and Toothless, promises to be a Larger-Than-Life World of Viking Adventures.

In Universal’s new land, guests will see what it’s like to live amongst dragons! Universal claims this will be one of the most “breathtaking environments Universal has ever created.

That is a huge claim considering the accomplishment that has already been achieved in bringing the immersive and amazing Wizarding World of Harry Potter to life at Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure.

The land will be filled with details fans will recognize from the films. One of these is the iconic 40-ft Viking statues that will tower over the entrance. The land promises to be bustling with dragons and even sheep!

Guests will experience what it is like to fly on a dragon! They will fly alongside Hiccup and Toothless and reach speeds up to 45 mph as they soar around the perimeter of Berk.
