As you might have heard, a very important meeting took place today in Orange County that decided the future of the SkyPlex entertainment district, which also include the SkyScraper coaster, the SkyFall drop tower, and much more. More than a hundred people have attended this public meeting, including supporters of this project and some of those who are against it. We are very happy to report that this very exciting project was approved unanimously by the County.


The short video embedded below includes some additional information about the SkyPlex meeting:


Joshua Wallack (the person behind the SkyPlex project) will release more information about the project in the next few weeks. He called this month a "December to remember" according to the Orlando Business Journal, as he has stated that he has multiple announcements to make (as well as open the brand-new Mango's Tropical Cafe). We will continue to keep you updated.

So excited that this was approved! I'm a Orange County resident and I'm glad that after all the headaches that Universal was causing, that this went through. This will keep Orlando the attraction capital and will keep people coming in to see what else they have planned. I'm not sure why Universal was even against this happening. People will go to I Drive to ride the coaster, and then head over to the theme parks, probably Universal as they continue to thrill us. Disney is amazing at what they do, just not thrilling. Universal will get many more visitors because of this. Again, very excited for the approval and can't wait to see this taking shape, let alone riding all the attractions attached to it. Thank you Orange County board! You will continue to get my vote!!!

^Rumors are Universal is planning a third park and that this would visually intrude on the inside.

More info on the Universal third park rumor (yes it's still a rumor and NOT confirmed by Universal yet) can be found here:

This will be pretty awesome. I'm not a fan of heights, but I might muster up the courage to check it out. I also can't wait to find out what Universal is using their newly purchased land for. I'm hoping it's a Nintendo-themed park!
