As we reported last year, Universal Orlando purchased 101 acres of land which was an addition to 475 acres purchased back in 2015. Per deeds filed today and online reports, it looks likes they just purchased even more land which leads one to speculate about the possibility of a fourth theme park coming to Universal Orlando.
Here is a photo of the deed from Orange County Public Records:
It also sounds like Universal Orlando is proactively trying to avoid any competitors coming to the area. Online reports also indicate that they have also acquired deed restrictions that would block any competition from building in the Universal Orlando area.
If you are familiar with the area, the land that was just purchased today is off I-4 between Sand Lake Road and Martin Anderson Beachline Parkway:
Here is a very rudimentary sketch I did of the land @UniversalORL has now acquired east of I4 where it will likely build a 4th theme park. The blue outline shows the land Universal now owns which is larger than its current park. pic.twitter.com/L3kTn2cg1v
