Universal Orlando is about to pull out the checkbook for over $120 million in capital improvements over the next year to offset declining attendance according to the companies latest SEC filing. In past filings the resort has only spent $41 million in 2006 and $30 million in 2005 so this is quite significant. They admit $15-$20 million of it will go to maintenance of existing rides, but that still leaves about $100 million for new attractions such as the rumored Simpsons and Harry Potter attractions...
So let the rumours begin on what possible new attractions could be in the works to boost attendance,and what existing attractions or areas could do with the $15-$20 million investment!
Personally I think Universal Studios could do with its own theatre to host boardway style shows,like it does in Japan with Wicked,especially after the suscess of the Finding Nemo Musical at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
