The Resort is all set to bring out the tickets for visitors, traveling on dates starting June 2017. There will be a special 3-park Explorer ticket as well, offering access to Volcano Bay and the two theme parks (Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure).
Often referred to as Universal Orlando’s third theme park, Volcano Bay features a total of 18 exclusive attractions in four themed areas, spread over 28 acres of lush, tropical oasis. Named after the colossal volcano Krakatau, the first of the themed area is home to the towering 200 ft. tall Volcano itself and features first of its kind marquee attraction (detail and specification on this is yet to come). Also to be seen three body slides with surprise drops by the rear of the Volcano. It also houses the world’s only water slide experience that enables fans to travel through a pool filled with guests.

Located at the base of the Volcano is the next themed area – Wave Village, features a multi-directional wave pool with sand beach namely the Waturi Beach with one or two story cabanas. Besides the leisure pool Reef makes a great view for guests wanted to stay away from the waves but don’t want to miss those crazy actions down the Ko’okiri Body Plunge.
