Morning, everyone. We're here for another Universal water park update for everyone. The above two images come from a NPDES Stormwater CGP (Construction General Permit) on the land south of Cabana Bay, which we all know is rumored to be the location of the new Universal water park. Our sources have told us there are only two types of these permits: one for projects larger than five acres, and one for projects less than five acres. As you can see, this project is for more than five acres, meaning Project 533 is more than just a construction trailer park for another remote location. Of course this doesn't tell us what it will be, only that it will be big. The permit also has an expiration date 5 years from the filing date. We're not sure if that's just the standard length for such a permit or not, but that would be an awfully long build time for Universal's recent track record.
That's all for now, but stay tuned to Parkscope for more information as it comes out.

Well, I've been waiting for this for a while, but it looks like the first permit for Project 533, rumored to be the Universal Water Park, has finally been put up. First, this was first posted at Orlando United's forums. But the address, which coincides with the location south of Cabana Bay Beach Resort, has long been rumored to be the location for the water park coming to Universal. Rumored to be themed to a volcanic island, complete with an active volcano centerpiece, Universal has trademarked names such as Volcano Bay and Wondersea Island for the park.
Stay tuned to Parkscope for more updates.

Looks like we may finally be seeing some progress on a long standing rumor for Universal Orlando today. Two permits have just been filed for selective demolition and additions to Building 88 which we have found is the Gardens of Allah area. This location has long been rumored to become a museum of sorts celebrating UOR for its 25th anniversary next year. Stay tuned to Parkscope for more information as it's released. (note, pictures of the permits will be up later)

Joe, Mike, Nick, and Sean finally got to experience Diagon Alley in late September. After 10 minutes talking about beer and bars, we finally discuss all aspects of Diagon Alley and the Hogwarts Express. We cover the land, shops, food, drink, shows, and attractions. And you'll be surprised how angry we get each other over the owl shop.
