The Orlando Sentinel reports that Universal Orlando's new Harry Potter land sent Comcast Corp.'s third-quarter theme-park revenue soaring 18.7 percent compared with the previous year, the company said in an earnings report Thursday. Overall, Comcast's profit jumped 50 percent to $2.6 BILLION!!
And the party is not over yet for Comcast with new attractions coming soon at Orlando ( the long rumored King Kong Skull Island at IOA ), the WWOHP at Universal Hollywood and a new Loews luxury hotel, the Sapphire Falls Resort - renderings above and below - that will open in summer 2016 and will be Universal Orlando's fifth hotel. No need to say that you can expect all these to raise Comcast profits.
