The latest summertime news in Orlando is that in the next few days Universal are scheduled to make a major statement. It revolves around a large tract of land which Universal purchased a while ago. Speculation is that this will be the announcement of a brand new theme park in Orlando.
Rumours are pointing towards the new theme park in Orlando being called Fantastic Worlds and will be the home to rides by to Mario Kart, Donkey Kong, and Yoshi. This will be Universal’s largest theme park to date!
UPDATE!! The theme park is officially call EPIC UNIVERSE
It has evidently been inspired by the Fantastic Beasts films; DreamWorks Animated franchises such as How To Train Your Dragon; and the Classic Universal Monsters like Dracula and Frankenstein. In true Orlando fashion a theme park is not a theme park destination unless it has hotels, dining and entertainment options. We are expecting plenty of them all.
So far there has been no opening date or even major details but that will change on August 1st.
As you all know, Orlando the is the Number 1, family vacation destination in the world. With improved infrastructure, an expanded airport and now a new theme park there is even more reason to visit Orlando. We envisage Orlando to continue to be the most important family destination in the world as tourist numbers head toward 100 million per annum.
All of this expansion is great for the tourism business but it has other benefits. Workers are required, local businesses grow and prices increase. For investors this latest summertime news in Orlando is exactly what they are wanting to read.
