Introducing Universal Kids Resort: New Theme Park in Frisco, Texas

by Leap on December 1, 2023 4 Dallas/Fort Worth

Universal Kids Frisco - Concept Art

Universal Destinations & Experiences both kicked off and ended 2023 with major announcements! The beloved themed entertainment company currently runs five ever-expanding properties across the globe: two in the United States and three in Asia. That number will soon grow to seven — at the beginning of 2023, Universal proposed a brand-new concept tailored for tadpoles in Frisco, Texas as number six (as well as a year-round horror experience in Las Vegas as number seven). On March 7, 2023, the Frisco City Council and the Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission voted to approve the proposal, and on Dec. 1, 2023, they revealed the park's name: Universal Kids Resort!

What do I mean by "tailored for tadpoles"? Well, this one-of-a-kind park is specifically designed to inspire fun for frog squads with young kids. Set in a lush green landscape and featuring immersive themed lands, families will enjoy more intimate and engaging attractions for young audiences, such as family-friendly attractions, interactive and playful shows, character meet and greets, unique merchandise and fun food and beverage menus. As with any Universal property, this concept will celebrate its iconic brand of entertainment, humor and innovation and bring to life its beloved characters and stories in ways that will thrill even the tiniest of tadpoles.

Currently sitting on only 97 acres of land, this park will be sized for a regional audience and will also include an on-site themed 300-room hotel — with room for expansion! While certain characters and settings will, of course, be recognizable, the entire area is intended to have a completely different look, feel and scale than Universal's existing theme parks and is being designed to appeal to a new audience. The park will be situated east of the Dallas North Tollway and north of Panther Creek Parkway.

More details about this tadpole-friendly project will be revealed over time, so stay tuned, because we'll be sure to share all the frogciting info as it gets announced!

It will depend on just what they put in it and the cost, but I’m excited about the possibilities. It’s a half days drive for me instead of a couple days drive to their other parks.

I’m hoping for a lot of Nintendo IP in the park,
