Universal Studios New Waterpark, Volcano Bay, to Open in 2017
The newest addition to Universal Orlando does not involve any wizardry--just good ol' fun under the Florida sun
As Universal Orlando celebrates its 25th anniversary, they are also actively working on creating a brand new water park experience. The new Volcano Bay water park will be located near the cluster of Universal theme parks and entertainment areas, which include Universal Studios Florida, Universal Islands of Adventure and Universal City Walk. Although Universal Studios already owns the Wet’n Wild water park on International Drive, the new Volcano Bay is expected to be more of a theme park in its immersive nature, attractions and features.
Just like many other theme parks in Orlando, Volcano Bay will have a signature iconic element which will be a smoking volcano. The water park will also include a wave pool, plenty of slides, a lazy river, and other features not yet disclosed by Universal Studios. While Volcano Bay will have a theme of its own, it is possible that Universal brings into the water park elements from other attractions to bind the new theme park to its older siblings. Without question, this new water park in Orlando will become the “next big thing” to hit the Central Florida area.
Located on a 50-acre piece of land dedicated to the water park project, Volcano Bay will become the 6th water park in the Orlando area, which is considered the family vacation capital of the world. With Central Florida enjoying warm temperatures through most of the year—even in the state’s mild winters—the water park will draw the attention of Universal Studios fans and of thrill-seekers who want to see something new and refreshing in a city that welcomes over 50 million visitors every year.
And of course, you know that Vista Cay Resort by Millennium will become your vacation headquarters during your stay in Orlando. So be sure to keep coming back to our website to discover new promotions all year round!
