    So ignorant of how much these things cost!

    6 billion dollars includes but not limited to:

    Design and Research for the park. This can take hundreds of staff to design, research, master plan etc.
    Building the attractions themselves, transportation & tax for importation
    Infrastructure of the park including power adjust, AC / Heating underground
    Hotels
    CityWalk
    Moving an entire river
    Land clearance
    Hundreds of thousands of staff over the year from Universal, Contractor and, Sub-Contractors etc
    Building the park itself
    Thousands of operations, technical staff and support staff to test and train inside the park
    Life Safety people
    Accommodation for construction and Universal staff

    The list can go on and on and all of a sudden 6 billion to go from soil to a fully operational park is not bad!

    The outdoor concert venue did not replace Fast & Furious Supercharged. The ride would have been adjacent to the concert venue and is currently a plot of grass.

    Two Billion went into the theme park. The park itself sits on around 220 acres of land with 135 acres being used right now, making it the current largest Universal park.
