    They don't and never had any room for Islands of Adventure in Hollywood. They Barely have room to operate the attractions they have at USH.

      NO. IOA was always planned just for Florida. It was a response to WDW and to try and get more people to stay at their park.

      BTW - IOA is not a disney park, but it is still a a lot of fun and worth going two if you have not been before.

        Correct, Universal had to make their park into a resort multi day experience to compete with what Disney had. It would have worked better had Disney not built a 4th park instead. Now people just seem to do IOA and Universal in one day, so I'm not sure how much it really helped their bottom line. I think if Universal would build a top of the line water park on property (and tear down the awful waterpark they now operate down the road) that they'd compete a bit better. But it would need to be a water park on par with what Disney has.

          Planning for IOA got underway shortly after USF opened. They knew they would need more than one park to compete with Disney. However, it was always intended for Orlando, not Hollywood.

            Well there is rumor that they might rebuild Wet N Wild at the resort in the future. They still have alot of land from what is still there after Vivinda sold most of it. I wish that Vivinda had not, but oh well.

            IOA is a wonderful park that just need more love and more attractions, which Harry is bringing. Hopefully more will come for other islands.

              I think, in retrospect, it might have been better for Universal to keep a single park in Orlando instead of buidling two. If they incorporated Spider-Man, Seuss-land and Harry Potter into the original park, I think it would surpass 10 million visitors per year, instead of the 5-6 million visitors each of the parks gets individually today.

                Those attractions would not fit USF's theme.
