New Waterpark Coming to Universal Orlando Resort

Universal Orlando Resort recently announced a new undertaking: Volcano Bay at Universal Orlando Resort.

The new waterpark will join Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure as the resort's third, incredibly immersive park. Universal’s Volcano Bay will be a place for the entire family and student groups to enjoy. It will be a whole new generation of experience that reimagines what it means to be a water park.

With radically innovative and thrilling attractions, peaceful moments of relaxation, and an inspired guest experience, Volcano Bay will be set in a highly themed, completely immersive environment inspired by postcard-perfect tropical islands.

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 new park will open in 2017.
