Let’s get this out of the way some of this stuff has no been confirmed yet.....
There have been rumors floating around about in last September Comcast (Which owns Universal) that they have committed to bring a new attractions and renovations at least once per year for years to come (Comcast commits to giving Universal 500 million dollars to bring at least one new attraction a year so), this raises the question what could they spend the money on? It looks like they already started with the first attraction being King Kong.
I have talked about before what will be the next big project will be for Universal after the huge success of Diagon Alley, and so far what the new project seems to be is the highly anticipated Skull Island. When it comes to trying to figure out what the release date for the ride will be sources say it could be in 2016 to go along with the film release, also some interesting details on what the new attraction could be like. (New King Kong attraction to be squeezed between Jurassic Park and Toon Lagoon) Although, this is just a rumor if it is to be true this could be very exciting and something that has never been seen before on any attraction it could also be the largest capacity on any attraction. With that being said this is not the only attraction that Universal is gearing up for several things in the years to come.
If to be true what could be spent with remaining money it looks like their main focus will be to bring more attractions to Universal Orlando rather than to Universal Hollywood given that Orlando has much more capacity than Hollywood does. Could we possibly see an expansion to Marvel Island given the recent reports? (Marvel plans for eight movies by year 2017) If so that could mean huge numbers for Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios, and if it does happen what ride could they add to the Island? Well actually before we get to ahead of ourselves let’s realize that since Disney purchased the rights to Marvel there will be at least for a long time a battle as to see who gets the theme park rights. In the mean time we could still always dream and wonder out of these eight movies coming within the next 3 or so years what could potentially become an attraction.
Some of these things have not been confirmed yet, but it there is potential here. What would you like to see?
