Universal announces Wet & Wild will close December 2016.

Edited: June 17, 2015, 11:35 AM

Today, the official Universal blog announced that Wet & Wild will close the last day of December 2016. Any conjecture what will be built on that property? The property is the park, parking lot, and operation buildings , plus Universal has a portion of the lake which is shared with the adjacent non Universal hotels.

Thanks Rob for this info.

It makes sense with the new Volcano water themed park Universal is building.

Of course we will all speculate what to do with that land. It is a bit away from the other Universal properties in Orlando...

Not sure if it would be a good place for a Hotel... Maybe it will just sit there as land for sale...

It's going to be another Hotel or two. I guarantee it. Universal has been approved for 10,000 hotel rooms and they're only at 4,200, or 5,200 if you count Sapphire Falls. Universal may build a 3rd gate somewhere one day, but it won't be at the wet n wild spot.
