Universal’s Volcano Bay TM
Universal’s Volcano Bay TM water theme park is a model for the thematic waterpark. Universal’s generous use of thematic elements throughout the park creates a spectacularly realistic experience for guests as they find themselves inside a tropical paradise that draws huge inspiration South Pacific cultures. Separated into four areas across 25 acres, fog is tastefully implemented throughout rainforest landscapes, caverns, and water rides to add mystery and intrigue while also cooling the surrounding areas. Perhaps one of the most thrilling additions is a fog blanket thrown across the path of two massive walls on the muti-person slide, Honu ika Moana.
The fog effects have not been lost on visitors; almost every review of the park includes something about the incredible mist and fog effects that make the park look so realistic. Well-known park review site “Undercover Tourist” commented that it was clear the designer poured in a high level of “detail, storytelling and immersion” to Volcano Bay TM.
