Universal Studios Buys Another 101 Acres.


Universal Orlando has purchased another 101 acres for new theme park projects in Orlando, Florida, adding to the 475 acres it has already acquired.

Universal closed on the purchase for $27.5 million on Thursday, a source close to the deal said. The new acreage is along Sand Lake Road, giving Universal a new major road frontage for its expansions.
The land is adjacent to the $130 million purchase Universal made in December 2015, north of Universal Boulevard and west of Destination Parkway. The latest acquisition gives Universal more than 570 acres to work with for expansions, which is multiple times larger than the property it currently owns and operates. -Orlando Sentinal
It will be nice to see what Universal has planned for such a large amount of space. With many classic attractions already taken down and replaced, it would be nice to see them start to begin a new park and save the classic attractions that they have left. I'll forever miss Jaws, Twister, and Terminator, but it's always good to see more to come. I'm sure most would agree that losing Back to the Future & Twister for their current replacements was a terrible decision.
