Hey Thrill Seekers,
This week has been perfect for any blogger suffering with writer’s block, you literally can’t blink without a major park dropping some major news. Yesterday SeaWorld Orlando revealed they’re building a new hyper coaster called MAKO, today Busch Gardens Tampa confirmed they’re building a new family spin coaster called Cobra’s Curse and now Universal Orlando have confirmed they’re building a whole new park!
We’ve been writing about Universal’s rumoured Water Park for over a year now, from the idea to the naming, but as usually Universal haven’t commented on any of it. That is until now.
This year marks Universal 25th year and we’ve all been expecting big news, we were under the impression that an official announcement would be made Sunday as the cream of the theme park industry meet up at IPW (industry event) but perhaps to steal a bit of Busch Gardens thunder or perhaps just coincidence Universal today confirmed they are building a new state of the art water park; Volcano Bay!
Universal’s Volcano Bay will be a place for the entire family. It will be a whole new generation of experience that reimagines what it means to be a water park.
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.
I’ve got to admit I’m really excited for Volcano Bay, when you look at the work Universal have produced recently; Wizarding World for example, you know its going to be amazing!!!
