If Universal Made a New US Park...
...where would you want it?
I was thinking about this earlier. If Universal made another park in the U.S., where would you want it to be located?
I was thinking about somewhere in the middle of the U.S., like Texas or Oklahoma

Yeah, Oklahoma or Kansas....Twister needs updating anyway! Seriously, it'd have to be (1) warm year round and (2) near either a large city or a tourist destination. San Antonio?
Can I vote for a third park in Orlando? There's a giant dirt lot next to Islands that would be the perfect place for a water park...

That's easy. Just off of I435 in Kansas City, replacing Worlds of Fun - twenty minutes from my house.
Hermione, that sounds good. I always thought Universal needed a water park
I know the absolutly perfect place. When I am trying to think of just what this question is, I look up where big parcels of land might be. I found 124,000 acres of land on the other side of this small mountain range from Phoenix, Arizona. It has never snowed there, and on average, rarely rains. The temperature rarely reaches below the 40's, and rarely below the 50's during the daytime.
It is flat land which is bheing sold for either farming OR commercial use.
Sorry Nick :P But that does sound like a good spot, but it's kinda close to Universal Hollywood (Arizona is close to California)
I thought that at first, but it's over a 5 hour drive which is a decent space away in my opinion.
I, however, actually see that Disney America taking shape in the big plot of land behind where they plan to build a DVC hotel. It would be perfect, being close to their hotel, shops, and Washington D.C.
There's actually a city in Texas called Universal City, Texas. No kidding. There's only little farmland there, which could be perfect for a Universal Studios Texas. But, I'm thinking the plot of land south of IOA will be better for a new park. That has one major downside: Access to the new park would require an expansion of Citywalk or a separate parking lot.
Turn that US into a UK ......now you talking ;)
North Carolina,Orlando(on the dirt lot near IOA could be a waterpark).Miami could use a theme park too.
