Universal Parks & Resorts is going all-in on a new location in Las Vegas.
On Wednesday, following the announcement of plans for a brand-new destination in Texas, Universal Parks & Resorts announced plans for a new location in Sin City.
While plans for Universal’s new destination in Texas tout the location as one that “is intended to have a completely different look, feel, and scale than Universal’s existing parks and will appeal to a new audience for the brand,” and that will include “family-friendly attractions, interactive shows, [and] character meet and greets,” the new location in Las Vegas will be one centered around a horror theme.
