#TravelTuesday – Universal Orlando announces Volcano Bay Water Theme Park

0DSCF6482

For more than 25 years, Universal Orlando Resort has operated as one of the most innovative themed experiences in the world. They revolutionized the industry with the opening of Spiderman, and rewrote the books on ride technology with the opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Soon, the real life wizards will change water parks forever with an entirely new water theme park experience.  Called Volcano Bay at Universal Orlando Resort, it will join Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure and become the resort’s third incredibly immersive park.

 

Universal’s Volcano Bay will be a place for the entire family.  It will be a whole new generation of experience that reimagines what it means to be a water park.

 

Imagine a place that offers radically innovative, thrilling attractions, peaceful moments of relaxation and an inspired guest experience that will forever change the perception of water theme parks.  It will be set in a highly themed, completely immersive environment inspired by postcard-perfect tropical islands.  And it will be the kind of special place that only the Universal team – the same team that has changed the face of Universal Orlando Resort in recent years – can envision and create.

 

Universal’s Volcano Bay will be located within Universal Orlando Resort, just south of the Cabana Bay Beach Resort.  Work is already underway and more details will be released in the future. 

 

Universal’s Volcano Bay is the next in a series of boldly creative experiences that have opened and will continue to open at Universal Orlando.  It began with The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade in 2010 and quickly moved to Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, Springfield, hometown to America’s favorite animated family, The Simpsons, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, eight new venues at Universal CityWalk, the breathtaking Cabana Bay Beach Resort and more.  It will include Skull Island: Reign of Kong and Loews Sapphire Falls Resort in 2016.

 

And then – in 2017 – will come Universal’s Volcano Bay. 

 

Universal Orlando’s two theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, are home to some of the world’s most exciting and innovative attractions. Its on-site resort hotels, Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, the Hard Rock Hotel, Loews Royal Pacific Resort, and Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort are destinations unto themselves.  Its entertainment complex, Universal CityWalk, offers dining and entertainment for every member of the family. And just minutes away is Wet ‘n Wild, a family water park.

 

Universal Orlando Resort is part of NBCUniversal, a Comcast company.  Follow them on  Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

 

In connection with the announcement of Volcano Bay, Universal also stated that Wet ‘n Wild, the world’s first modern water park, will welcome it’s final visitors on December 31, 2016. Florida residents can take advantage of special rates to the park this summer.
