Volcano Bay Waterpark Construction Update #14 ~ Universal Orlando Resort

Volcano Bay Logo Universal Orlando Resort

For our 14th construction update at Volcano Bay we figure you may want to start at the beginning. By beginning we mean what we believe to be the entrance loop area, which is showing some real signs of development:


A close up shot of those roped off areas shows us some deep circular holes, perhaps this could be for an entrance icon, signage, or maybe just ticket booths:


Nearby, we see some other buildings/structures also making progress, this first pictures looks to be a larger restaurant:

In the background of one of the above pictures, we can see Puihi that we told you about last week, is making even more progress:


As you can see they are using 2 different shade of green on this; one for the funnel structures and one for the slides. Here’s a few more shots from another perspective:

Next up we head over to Honu, which is all but done and is looking spectacular from all angles:

Only a couple more pieces remain to complete Honu and they are nearby:

Overall, the whole slide complex is looking fantastic with a the green and blue complimenting each other nicely:


A nearby slide complex we’ve been showing you is starting to its cabana style roof and looks to have already gotten it’s tube conveyor:

It wouldn’t be a Volcano Bay update without a look at the Volcano itself:


Krakatau mountain is looking more enclosed everyday, especially around the capsule slide area:


The slide out area we have been showing you looks to be a lot more finished since last time:


We close out our normal photo update with a look at the Krakatau Aqua Coaster station and its current progress:
