Universal's Volcano Bay set to blow on 25 May for grand opening
POSTED 27 Jan 2017 . BY Tom Anstey
The tropically-themed Volcano Bay will complement Universal’s existing Cabana Bay Beach Resort
Universal’s highly-anticipated Volcano Bay waterpark will open its doors to the public on 25 May, the operator has confirmed.

The waterpark, which replaces Wet N’ Wild Orlando following its closure on 31 December, has been touted as the “next generation”, with Universal promising to redefine the waterpark experience with everything from virtual queueing to immersive theming.



Featuring 18 attractions across four themed areas, the 28-acre (113,000sq m) park will be anchored by a 200ft (61m) -high volcano structure. The park’s signature ride will be within the volcano, which encases the Krakatau Aqua Coaster.

Offering a fully immersive experience, the park will feature a multi-directional wave pool, sand beaches, a lazy river travelling through the volcano’s hidden caves, a family raft ride and slides coming from the top of the volcano.

The tropically-themed Volcano Bay will complement Universal’s existing Cabana Bay Beach Resort, with visitors able to visit the waterpark as a single experience or as part of a three-park ticket in conjunction with the operator’s other two Orlando theme parks.
