Universal Announces Volcano Bay Reopening Date

Universal's Volcano Bay

The Universal Orlando Resort has announced that Universal’s Volcano Bay – Universal Orlando Resort’s water theme park – will begin welcoming guests again on Saturday, February 27.

One of three amazing theme parks at Universal Orlando, Universal’s Volcano Bay is a tropical oasis filled with a variety of relaxing and thrilling experiences – all surrounding a massive 200-foot volcano nestled right in the center of the park. Upon entering the picturesque park, guests are immediately transported to a South Seas-inspired paradise where they can relax on the sands of Waturi Beach, drift leisurely down Kopiko Wai Winding River, brave a 125-foot drop alongside the volcano on Ko’okiri Body Plunge and so much more.

Volcano Bay’s enhanced health and safety procedures will be in place when the park reopens on February 27 and reflect the guidelines that debuted last year. Key measures include temperature screenings for guests and team members, limiting capacity at the park and on attractions – including rivers and pools, enforcing social distancing, aggressive cleaning and disinfection procedures, and requiring face coverings inside restaurants, retail locations, and when entering and exiting the park. Face coverings are not permitted on the slides and in the pools.

For complete information on Universal Orlando’s health and safety procedures, click here.

Tickets for Volcano Bay are on sale now for visits beginning February 27. Three-park annual and seasonal passes, as well as vacation packages, that include access to Volcano Bay will be available for purchase in the weeks ahead.
