Universal Orlando’s third amazing theme park, Volcano Bay, will officially grand open on May 25, 2017. And today, Universal Orlando provided a first ever look at the new TapuTapu wearable coming to Volcano Bay that will transform the way guests experience water theme park entertainment.
When guests arrive to Volcano Bay, they’ll receive a TapuTapu wearable to use for the day that will make their experience throughout the entire park as hassle-free and fun-filled as possible. It will allow them to virtually wait in line for Volcano Bay’s dozens of unique attractions and discover various TapTu Play experiences throughout the park with just a simple tap.
The TapuTapu wearable gives you the ability to enjoy the new Virtual Line. You’ll walk up to the totem in front of an attraction entrance and with just a simple tap, receive a return time for that attraction. The TapuTapu then allows you to virtually wait in line so you can enjoy other areas of Volcano Bay while you wait. Each one of Volcano Bay’s four imaginatively-themed areas is filled with incredible experiences for all ages – so you don’t have to go far to have fun while you wait.
Soak up the sun on Waturi Beach, watch your friends speed through the Ko’okiri Body Plunge in The Reef leisure pool or brave the racing torrent of TeAwa The Fearless River. When it’s time for you to ride, TapuTapu will alert you to head over to the attraction. No carrying tubes, no standing in long lines, no hassles.
TapuTapu also allows you to explore various TapTu Play experiences throughout the park. You can control streams of water spurting from whales in Tot Tiki Reef or shoot water cannons at other guests snaking down Kopiko Wai Winding River. You can even illuminate images in the volcano’s hidden caves (I can’t wait for this one).
You’ll receive an interactive TapuTapu wearable to use for the day when you arrive to the park at no extra charge.
