Volcano Bay Water Theme Park opened on May 25th 2017. It was built to replace Wet 'n Wild, Orlando which closed in December 2016. The main feature of the park is a 200 foot tall (artificial) volcano named "Krakatau", which itself houses three drop slides. Park visitors can wear a wristband (called Tapu Tapu) which they can use to reserve their place in a line without having to stand in long lines in the hot sun.

Park History

Plans for Volcano Bay were submitted by Universal Orlando in February 2015 and construction had started by the time the project was officially announced in May 2015. In June 2015 it was revealed that it would replace the closing Wet 'n Wild water park. Volcano Bay was designed around a Polynesian Island theme, with four themed areas, Krakatau, Wave Village, River Village and Rainforest Village. The park cost an estimated $600m to build on 53 acres of Universal's land.
