Watercoaster and virtual queuing confirmed for Universal's Volcano Bay
POSTED 03 Nov 2016 . BY Alice Davis
Universal Orlando has revealed further details about its highly anticipated Volcano Bay waterpark, including a watercoaster and virtual queuing technology.

The operator announced today (3 November) the waterpark will feature a watercoaster thrill ride that journeys through the 200ft (61m) -high volcano structure at the centre of the site. Guests will board specially-designed canoes to ride the Krakatau Aqua Coaster, which uses leading water ride technology to propel them uphill as well as down.

Universal’s signature immersive theming will also play a role in the Krakatau water coaster, making it a “first-of-its-kind aqua coaster in Florida”.

Guests will be able to book ride slots and avoid queuing in the waterpark thanks to Universal’s TapuTapu virtual queuing technology. Each visitor will be issued with a wristband device that enables them to hold their place in a line and unlock “surprises” around the location.

“With just a tap of TapuTapu, guests can trigger special effects like controlling streams of water spurting from whales in Tot Tiki Reef, shooting water cannons at guests snaking down Kopiko Wai Winding River and illuminating images in the volcano’s hidden caves,” according to a statement.

Featuring 18 attractions across four themed areas, the 28-acre (113,000sq m) park will be anchored by the volcano structure. Offering a fully immersive experience, the park will feature a multi-directional wave pool, sand beaches, a lazy river travelling through the volcano’s hidden caves, a family raft ride, slides coming from the top of the volcano and a brand new queuing experience Universal says will put the focus “entirely on having fun and spending time together".

The operator has also promised a "a state-of-the-art marquee attraction found only at Volcano Bay," though further details have not been revealed.
