Artegon Site for New Theme Park?

I disagree with that. When Universal gets their next park open, I think I-Drive (and Seaworld) will win big.

I, and I'm sure many others, like to take a couple days off the tourist attractions I set out to see, and explore something else. The problem recently has been Disney for the week, and the couple days have been going to Universal instead of I-Drive and SeaWorld. I think as the new park opens and Universal cements itself as the destination rather than the one off to Disney's guests, I-Drive will no longer be in competition with Universal to peel off a day or 2 from Disney, it will instead have many more vacations to peel a day or 2 from Universal to get its base. And I think as these "world's tallest" attractions keep getting built between the parks, more and more people will be enticed. The biggest thing is making sure the airport can keep up.

I personally think Legoland made a huge mistake not buying this property and placing their park here instead of out in the middle of nowhere.
Good points. But the south property was deed restricted with a non-compete clause for Universal... it couldn't be used for large themed attractions.

Also with the Endless Summer resorts Idrive is more walk able from Universal property. With that being added to the bus system, is there anything stopping guests of other Universal resorts using it to get to Idrive?

The Artegon site has not had that sort of deed restriction. It, with the parcel to the south, was previously the proposed site of a rumored WWE theme park, and a thrill park.

Sorry, for some reason I misread that to be the Universal south property. My mistake.
