Some aggressive investment in recent years, most noticeably bringing the world of Harry Potter to thrilling life, has elevated Universal Parks from their post new-millennium lull.

With the purchase of the last 400+ acre tract of land available on International Drive, they are currently creating their 3rd main gate. 

‘Epic Universe will be Orlando’s largest theme park when it opens in 2025. Don’t think that Universal have forgotten about their current parks.

Universal Studios is gradually changing before our eyes. Nickelodeon is a distant memory and the Men In Black have taken up residence next to The Simpsons.

A certain boy wizard has caused the most ripples since he moved into Amityville.  While the iconic score and menacing pectoral fin are widely missed, Harry Potter signals a new era of immersiveness in theme parks worldwide and that is something to be very excited about.

Volcano Bay

The new kid on the block is aiming to shake things up in the stagnated water park market. Opened in 2017 after 2 years of construction, Volcano Bay replaces the world’s first waterpark, Wet ‘N’ Wild on International Drive.

It is the first park in the world to feature virtual queues leaving guests free to explore the park’s other attractions while waiting to ride. Nobody is going to miss the 200ft erupting volcano centrepiece that now dominates the skyline at the north end of International Drive.
