    I took this from the Hogwarts Express queue on Saturday 18th. There was a lot of activity but nothing looks like it's going upwards yet, just a lot of ground moving.

    You can see the new purchase above, which is highlighted in red, alongside the 2015 purchase, highlighted in green. For comparison, the existing Universal Orlando Resort is highlighted in blue.

    Universal bought more expansion land but haven't said anything about what they are going to do with it yet. Just interesting to keep an eye on.

    Universal Orlando now has even more room to grow, because the resort recently bought another 101 acres of land adjacent to the 475 acres of expansion property it already owns.

    As first reported by the Orlando Business Journal, Universal Orlando has completed the purchase of 101 acres along Sand Lake Road for $27.5 million. The new parcel connects to the land near the Orange County Convention Center that Universal bought in 2015, bringing their total expansion plot up to 576 acres — larger than all the current theme parks at Universal Orlando Resort.

    the square concrete form near Hogsmeade can be a foundation for a tower crane


    Beyond the peaks of Hogsmeade is what remains in the demolition of Dragon Challenge.

    Any news/updates pertaining to the recently confirmed "new generation of thrill ride coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in 2019" should be posted on this thread. Few official details have been released but the latest rumor from Screamscape (http://www.screamscape.com/html/islands_of_adventure.htm) is that the ride will be a "custom motocycle themed launched coaster attraction concept" themed to the Forbidden Forest.
