According to an earnings report released by Comcast, NBCUniversal’s parent company, Universal’s theme parks are continuing to rebound from the pandemic.
The earnings report showed $1.8 billion in revenue for the second quarter of 2022, an increase of 64.8% compared to the same period in 2021.
The growth at the theme parks was attributed to “exceptional demand” at Universal Orlando in Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood in California, with attendance reaching pre-pandemic levels.
Brian Roberts, Comcast CEO, said: “Our recovery from the pandemic at theme parks has been fantastic and shows no signs of slowing down.”
Jeff Shell, NBCUniversal CEO, added: “The main thing we’ve done during the pandemic in our theme parks is we’ve continued to invest in them.”
“We’ve added major attractions at all of our parks. We didn’t really slow it down much during the pandemic.”
