    Comcast 'Looking at' Fourth Theme Park for Universal Orlando Resort
    Universal Studios
    Universal Orlando Resort is the only theme park destination in the world where you, your family and your friends can feel all these things in the same day: rush, joy, exhilaration, total outrageousness, extreme fun and everything else. It is a unique destination where guests are not just entertained - they become part of their own entertainment and adventure.

    Comcast executives said they are looking at planning a fourth theme park for Universal Orlando, hoping to ramp up the resort from a two- to three-day destination to a weeklong destination.

    During Thursday's earnings call, an analyst asked about the company filing a patent application last month for the name Fantastic Worlds, wondering if that indicated plans for another theme park for the resort.

    "In terms of a new [theme park] in Florida, we are looking at it," NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke said, adding that the company filed a name registration.

    Another theme park would "have the advantage of turning Florida from a two- or three-day destination to potentially a weeklong destination," Burke said.

    Comcast owns NBCUniversal, the parent company of this station.
