Volcano Bay, Universal Orlando’s new water theme park, roars to life May 25; and in anticipation of its grand opening, Universal Orlando is giving future guests a sneak peek of the new TapuTapu wearable technology coming to the Pacific Isle-themed park.
Upon arrival to Volcano Bay, your clients will receive a TapuTapu wearable device to use for the day, which allows park-goers to avoid standing in long lines and wrestling with water park tubes as they wait their turn. Rather, guests will virtually wait in line for Volcano Bay’s dozens of unique attractions spanning 30 acres and the device will alert them when it’s time to ride. Guests can also discover various TapTu Play experiences throughout the park by tapping the device on totem symbols and using it to unlock interactive surprises around the park—think water jets and lighting effects.
Volcano Bay’s experiences include a multi-directional wave pool with sandy beaches, a winding river, twisting multi-rider raft rides, and the Kala & Tai Nui Serpentine Body Slides with twin trap doors that simultaneously drop two guests down intertwining tubes. The star attraction will be the Krakatau Aqua Coaster, which sends 4-person canoes sliding through the dark twists and turns within the park’s massive 200-ft.
