Universal Orlando has just about maxed out its current resort area once Volcano Bay and Aventura are completed and expansion has already been announced for the Wet n Wild area. After that, with the exception of a few new additions to USO and IOA like a Jimmy Fallon and Fast and Furious attraction, future expansion points directly to the 475 acres Universal owns near the convention center.
Now I think we all can agree that the new Universal resort area will need to be self sustaining with new resorts, a convention center and a City Walk type entertainment complex. Most likely, the road between the two resort areas will be widened to include a dedicated bus line much like WDW is working on with Lake Buena Vista Drive near Disney Springs. But thinking about what IPs the new theme park will feature (Nintendo, DreamWorks, possibly Universal Monsters, maybe a Jurassic World land featuring the new incarnation of the property, and most likely a couple of other random IPs not yet announced), the new resort area needs one more BIG IP to anchor the park and draw guest to the new resort area.
My question is what would that one BIG IP be, not including Lord of the Rings, which seems like it will never appear in a theme park?
