More positive news about another Universal themepark/waterpark/entertainment complex coming to Orlando's I-Drive.
This rumour has been doing the rounds for a while now but it seems to be coming true as new plans for the area show zoning for a new "themepark" to land bought by Comcast (Universals owners) earlier this year.
You can see the land is clear on Google Earth and there is currently nothing much west of the Orlando Eye so it would be a good location for a new park. It looks exactly like I would expect a potential Orlando theme park site to look at this stage; site clear of structures, lake location and surrounding areas clear for future expansion. At 475 acres it will be a big site if they build on it.A map provided to Orange County's planning department shows a new "Universal Studios Sub-District 8" that will have a theme park zoning, which fits into what many expected to be the future use of the land now owned by Universal's parent company, Comcast Corp. Comcast acquired that 475 acres earlier this year for more than $130 million and has called it a "strategic acquisition" for long-term growth.
