A brand-new water park is coming to Orlando in June 2017, and its name is Volcano Bay!
Tickets are on sale now, so if you’re planning a trip to the Sunshine State in 2017, here’s a taster of what you can expect:
It looks AWESOME!
….And this video gives you a sneak peek:
Volcano Bay will be a “Water Theme Park”
This is the official description being used by Universal Orlando, which leads us to believe that it will be more than just another water park!
It’s right next door to the Universal theme parks
They’re waving goodbye to queues
Volcano Bay will redefine the queuing experience with some majorly impressive new technology called TapuTapu wearables. which will alert you when it’s your turn to ride, so you can really make the most of your time in the park rather than wasting time waiting in line.
You can also use your TapuTapu wearable to trigger special effects and experiences throughout the park, like shooting water cannons at guests on the Winding River and illuminating images in the volcano’s hidden caves!
There will be plenty of thrill rides
If your idea of fun is plummeting down a tropical volcano, navigating wild river rapids or being catapulted into pools of blue water, this is where you want to be! Volcano Bay promises us plenty of water rides for the most daring thrill-seekers.
It will be a great place for your “day off”
After a few days of hitting the theme parks, most Orlando-goers recommend taking a day out to relax and recharge. At Volcano Bay you’ll be able to unwind on the sun-drenched beaches, drift leisurely down a winding river or cool off in one of the pools
There’s something for everyone
Whether you’re with your family or friends, Volcano Bay looks set to keep everyone entertained, with multi-level playgrounds and fun for little ones, exploring hidden volcanic caves, spending quality time together in your own private cabana – and much more!
It will be split into 4 different areas
Krakatau: Within the hidden caverns and cascading waterfalls of a 200ft volcano, you’ll find 3 different body slides with surprise doors that drop out from beneath you!
River Village: Head here for family-friendly attractions surrounding a peaceful winding river.
Rainforest Village: Thrill-seekers will have the time of their lives in this adventure-drenched village.
Wave Village: The perfect place to soak in the sun and relax on the sandy shores at the base of Krakatau.
You can experience Volcano Bay from June 2017!
