International Tickets On Sale Soon
for Travel Dates Beginning June 1, 2017
A One-of-A-Kind Paradise Filled with Adventure-Drenched Thrills, Relaxing Indulgence and Rejuvenation
Universal’s Volcano Bay is a radically-innovative water theme park opening next
year at Universal Orlando Resort. Spanning 28 fully immersive acres, Universal
Orlando’s third theme park will be an entirely new kind of water theme park experience,
giving guests even more to enjoy on their vacation.
This one-of-a-kind park will combine
exhilarating experiences with hassle-free convenience so families can get the
most out of their vacation together.
How is Volcano Bay innovative?
This water theme park will redefine the queue experience so guests can focus entirely on
having fun and spending time together. Guests won’t even have to carry their
own rafts up the slides.They won’t have to stand in long lines or
wrestle with tubes before diving into the unique attractions found throughout
the park. They can enjoy a variety of experiences, ranging from winding rivers
and private, two-story cabanas to family raft rides and twisting body slides
that launch guests above the water.
The Universal Creative team – the
same team behind ground-breaking theme park experiences like The Wizarding
World of Harry Potter, The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man and Despicable Me Minion Mayhem - researched water parks and tropical resorts around the
world to help redefine the water park experience and shape their vision for Volcano Bay.
The result? 18 unique attractions - ranging from daring to serene - divided across four primary park areas where there’s something for
everyone. Including a multi-directional wave pool with sandy beaches, peaceful
winding river, twisting multi-rider raft rides, speeding body slides that drop
from the top of the volcano into the waters below – and a state-of-the-art
marquee attraction that will be revealed at a later date.
