UCF and Universal Parks & Resorts design team launch ‘Creative Lab’ for future theme park creators (by Susan Lundine)

The University of Central Florida and Universal Creative — the team that designs, develops and delivers attractions, shows, hotels, restaurants and resorts worldwide for Universal Parks & Resorts — announced a new immersive learning experience for students in Orlando, the tourism capital of the world.

Beginning next spring, the new UCF/Universal Creative Lab will provide students with special coursework and on-site sessions at Universal Orlando Resort. Class members also will be able to interact with Universal show producers, engineers, creative directors, executives and other industry professionals so they get an in-depth look at the design and development process.
