We recently revealed Universal's Volcano Bay opening date of May 25, 2017, and now we have even more details on the amazing technology that will accompany the water park's opening – the Tapu Tapu (and it looks pretty cool too!)Here is the official word from Universal on what you can expect:
Today, Universal Orlando provided a first 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.
When it grand opens on May 25, Universal’s Volcano Bay will become Universal Orlando’s third amazing theme park and provide even more incredible experiences that further complement the entire destination. Volcano Bay will be an entirely new water theme park experience filled with incredible thrills and perfected relaxation. Spanning 30 fully immersive acres and featuring a variety of experiences ranging from daring to serene, Volcano Bay will offer something for everyone – including a multi-directional wave pool with sandy beaches, a peaceful winding river, twisting multi-rider raft rides, speeding body slides that drop from the top of the volcano into the waters below and more.
Here's how it will work:
At Volcano Bay™, every guest is granted the powers of TapuTapu™. With just a wave of your wrist you’ll be able to hold your place in the ride lines and discover wondrous surprises.
Look for totems throughout the park and tap your TapuTapu wherever you see this symbol.
Tap your TapuTapu to enter the Virtual Line™ experience. Relax and play around the park. Your wearable will alert you when it’s time to ride.
