Universal Orlando Wants to Widen Road, is Nintendo World Going to Happen?


Are we getting closer to an official announcement of Nintendo coming to Universal Orlando Resort?

Universal has filed for a permit to widen Sand Lake Road, presumably in anticipation of a third theme park, which was discussed in July.

From the Orlando Sentinel

The new permit application comes as the theme park operator is pursuing a major expansion in Orlando. Universal has acquired 575 acres around Universal Boulevard in the past two years.

In late July, company leaders confirmed they were looking at building a new park to join Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Island of Adventure as they spoke with analysts during a Comcast earnings call.

It’s extremely likely that this new park will contain at least a Nintendo-themed land, which could pose some serious competition with Disney.

There has been no official announcement of a third theme park yet or what attractions it would contain, but it’s almost a certainty at this point.
