Back in December I reported that Universal were rumoured to be buying a significant portion of land in close proximity to their current theme parks in Orlando.
Today Universal Orlando has confirmed in its earnings report that a large tract of land adjacent to an existing theme park has been purchased for $130 million.
While the report hasn’t said just how much land has been purchased, expect it to be the 450 acres that was reportedly purchased late last year.
While there has been no word from Universal on what their plans are for this new land, I would expect to see more of this Nintendo partnership and a focus on video game properties in theme parks. I would be very surprised if this wasn’t the start of a new theme park.
What do you think of this confirmation and what are your thoughts on what Universal is planning for this space?
