ORLANDO, FL (May 12, 2002; The Tampa Tribune and The Tampa Times) : Universal Orlando’s 53-acre Royal Pacific Resort is set to open in June as part of the high-tech, luxury theme park that is aimed at enticing teenagers.
The opening completes Universal Orlando’s park, which has been 10 years and $1 billion in the making, spokesman Mario Ruiz says. The theme park features “technology designed to appeal to all members of the family, not jut small children,” he says.
One attraction, Twister-Ride It Out, re-creates the chaos and electrical surge of being in a hurricane.
The Royal Pacific features the Asian-themed, Emeril Lagasse restaurant Tchoup Chop and a lot of lagoons, palm trees and Pacific island artifacts.
