Since word leaked last week, many have wondered how Universal Hollywood is planning to build The Wizarding World in the park considering how little room appears to be available.
Though they didn’t dive into details during the official announcement, The Washington Post got the scoop.
“We’re not landlocked,” [Universal Studios President] Meyer said. “We’re (on) 400 acres on this lot and 200 of them are still not developed.”
Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said he was told that a live concert venue, Gibson Amphitheatre, would be scrapped to make way for the attraction. He said it would open around 2014, but officials did not give a date.
The Gibson Amphitheatre still plays home to many events. One notable one recently was the MTV Movie Awards earlier this year.
We’ll have more on this information coming with our analysis report later today.
