Universal Orlando Resort has announced a project of remarkable vision: to bring to life an entirely new water theme park experience. The park will be called Volcano Bay at Universal Orlando Resort. Volcano Bay will join Universal Studios Orlando and Universal’s Islands of Adventure as it’s third park. The water theme park will be a place for the entire family, with guaranteed fun for those of all ages. The park is reimagining what it means to be a water park by bringing a new generation of aquatic thrills and fun.
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. The water theme park is set to open in 2017.
Universal’s Volcano Bay is the next in a series of bold and creative experiences that have opened in recent years at Universal Orlando. Beginning in 2010 with the wildly popular The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade additions grew to include 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. Also on the way in coming years are Skull Island: Reign of Kong and Loews Sapphire Falls Resort in 2016.
