Universal Orlando is on track to open a new one of its theme parks in 2023, according to a new report.

Universal Studios Japan, which has recently undergone a $1.5 billion expansion, is primed to get a second park based on its Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. The outlet spoke to a representative for Universal Orlando who claims that the park should open by 2023 – but did not say if a specific theme park would open.

A new ride based on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise was already confirmed for the new park, which is set to make its debut in 2020. Construction for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley opened last month and is set to open in summer 2020.

Just this week, Universal Orlando is opening a new Marvel themed maze based on “The Amazing Spider-Man” in the Regal Cinemas at Hollywood and Highland Theme Park. The theme park is one of the largest in the United States and has a massive 614-acre park with offerings from various theme parks.

The first Pirates of the Caribbean-themed theme park opened in Jacksonville, Florida in 1996. The park was based on the 1994 hit film of the same name and is known for its Hollywood Canteen located within the park. The Canteen includes a restaurant, bar, restaurant kiosk, cabana rentals, and merchandise shop.

Universal also has another theme park based on its existing parks, Hollywood Studios. The park opened in 1976 and is home to famous attractions such as the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Comcast owns NBCUniversal which owns Universal Parks and Resorts, including Universal Studios Hollywood.
