Earlier this week, Universal Orlando offered details on what they are calling their third park, Volcano Bay. The details (click here) included a look at many of the slides, and attractions in the park.
Now the Orlando Sentinel has a date that the park would be open by. According to the article, Volcano Bay will be open by June 1st. That’s not a solid opening date, but it is a date that they expect the park to be open by. It could be open sooner than expected as well, as construction on the property is moving along rapidly.
The 28 acre site is located directly next to Cabana Bay Beach Resort, which will also be adding more rooms via two Towers. The new park will change the queue system, according to Universal and will boast some innovative new attractions that have never been attempted before. Among those are a 70 foot drop slide through the heart of a Volcano and under a wave pool.
More details will be released as opening date gets closer.
