ORLANDO, Fla. (April 10, 2017) – Today, Universal Orlando Resort revealed the story behind its new immersive water theme park, Universal’s Volcano Bay – grand opening May 25, 2017.
Volcano Bay is a tropical paradise formed by myth and discovered by legend. It was discovered by the Waturi islanders with the help of a mystical fish who was destined to guide them to a new home. Visit the Universal Orlando Blog for more information on this remarkable story.
Volcano Bay could only be brought to life by Universal Creative – the same team responsible for bringing the ground-breaking experiences within Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure to life. The team traveled around the South Pacific to find inspiration that would redefine the water park experience and shape their vision for Volcano Bay. The water theme park is just another example of their commitment to spectacular storytelling and creating amazing, immersive guest experiences.
When it grand opens on May 25, Universal’s Volcano Bay will become Universal Orlando’s third amazing theme park and feature a variety of experiences ranging from daring to serene – including a multi-directional wave pool with sandy beaches, a peaceful winding river, twisting multi-rider raft rides, speeding body slides that drop from the top of the volcano into the waters below and more.
