Universal Orlando has just released a new preview of its forthcoming Volcano Bay water park, due to open in Summer 2017, timed to coincide with tickets going on sale.

The park is still being built, so the film is CGI but does give some clear ideas about what guests can expect from visits to the park when it opens in June 2017.

As well as the towering 200ft-tall “volcano” that will dominate the park, the video shows some of the rides and facilities visitors can expect and promises a “full day of fun that lasts well into the night”.

Clearly positioning the Volcano Bay water park as a full day out, Universal is describing it as the third park in its Orlando family.

Watch the video now

If you will be in Orlando in the latter part of 2017, watch the video now to see what you can enjoy:

Make the most of every splash!

One of the highlights of the video is the Krakatau™ Aqua Coaster, a four-person canoe ride which slides upward into dark twists and turns within the volcano before emerging with a plunge through a shimmering waterfall.


There will also be a toddler area, winding river, raft rides, tubes, drop slides and a 125ft body plunge.

Read more details about the rides to come on the Universal website.

New Wearable Technology to Eliminate Queueing

One of the most exciting announcements in the video is the digital queueing system.

Guests will be given a “TapuTapu” wristband which will enable virtual queueing so there is less standing in line.  The wristband will also be used to activate videos at tap-to-play spots around the park.
