Are Universal Planning Two New Theme Parks?

Hey Thrill Seekers,

On Friday GrowthSpotter reported on the proposed foreclosure of various pockets of land located between International Drive and John Young Parkway owed by Georgia-based developer Stan Thomas. These pockets are located very close to land purchased by Universal since December 2015.

Depending on how proceedings develop Universal could be entitled to bid for these pockets of land that would help secure its presence and ability to build in Orlando.

This isn’t the exciting bit…

But this could be…

Universal have obtained permission from Orange County for theme park use on the property northeast of Universal Boulevard although they do require further permissions from the master declarant however according to GrowthSpotter;

Universal representatives have told Orange County staff of a vision for two new theme parks on the land, but the company has not announced specific plans.

TWO PARKS (imagine fireworks and the like) yep Universal could be looking to become a 5 theme park destination adding to the already popular Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Volcano Bay…

Now you may need to curb your enthusiasm a tiny bit as building an entire park takes along time…. so two parks may take a tiny bit longer! But it does seem to suggest that competition for Orlando theme park dominance is only just getting started.

Smiles included…

Jamie
