Should universal studios have a third theme park in texas

i say this cause every time when Universal studios announce a ride they head to Dallas Texas with the mascot of the upcoming ride even tho allas does has A Universal Studios in Las calinas. now everybody knows if Disney is anywhere universal is right behind them so if they build a third theme park would it spike up business because many people in Texas have complained of SFOT and hurricane harbor is to over pack and at this point. Texas needs New Blood are should i say New Oil in the works. . and many people cant afford to go to Florida an universal studios so i say build a third Resort in Texas cause they already have a studio since the 1980's so should they build one Please give me your feed back on why and why not. on this idea even Oklahoma they have fields of Land coming towards Texas.

I don't think you'll see Universal or Disney add another theme park anywhere in the US at this point. Universal is concentrating on Orlando and the overseas parks and Disney is...well...Disney.

If Universal decided to build a park in Texas, they couldn't use the Marvel characters since the contract is only "East of the Mississippi" so Disney could use those characters instead.

Disney has it's hands full right now with Lucasfilm, Marvel and everything else they've plunked billions down for. Nothing has happened at WDW so I think the main priority right now is to concentrate on the guest experience with the new FastPass Plus and the RFID cards. Avatarland, Disney Springs and the Fantasyland expansion seem to be the only things set in stone right now.

Wow! That makes me sad... I love WDW. Avatarland, armbands and FLE just seems so pathetic. I want to see WDW become better than that!

And nothing on Pandora has even been announced, so that is way down the line. We all know how far in advance Disney tells us stuff.

Universal isn't everywhere Disney is. Only the US and Japan. Universal has another park in Singapore and if I remember right are working on a park in Dubai? Disney has Paris and Hong Kong and soon Shanghai....or that's the other way around. I forget.

Correct.

Universal has:

Universal City (which was already there before Disneyland), CA
Orlando
Osaka (The OTHER side of Japan from Tokyo)
Singapore

Soon or In-the-works:
South Korea
Moscow
Dubai (if it ever gets started again)


So yeah, Universal doesn't just follow Disney everywhere.
