Volcano Bay Waterpark Construction Update #16 ~ Universal Orlando Resort
Sweet 16! This is our 16th Volcano Bay waterpark construction update and we are happy to bring the news of some great progressions this week! First up, check out our 2nd construction video to get a great overview:
First up in our photo update, we take a little closer look at the entrance area where lettering has gone up spelling Volcano Bay:
Krakatau Mountain is erupting with new details and the structure is now completely surrounded by scaffolding.
Lots of concrete detail work has taken place as well. This is evident by the darker color of the volcano with the reddish colored panels covered:
Speaking of rock-work we noticed some nice, almost temple like theming near the base of the mountain:
Even more rock-work can be found around the site. This one we showed you last week near the front of the park:
Finally this new formation close to Maku and Puihi:
Speaking of Maku, the “one of a kind” saucer ride is nearly complete a little over 2 weeks since the first slide piece went up:
You can get a real appreciation for the angle of descent from this perspective (notice Puihi in the background of 2nd picture):
At the top of this slide complex we can see the entry point of both attractions pretty much installed:
We also notice this on Honu and Ika Moana:
Speaking of Honu we also notice water pipe work taking place under parts of the slide:
Directly underneath the slide complex is the lazy or possibly action river we’ve highlighting. It seems it has also started to get some detail work:
Elsewhere, is this bright yellow structure which be a bridge covering or is waiting to be hoisted into place somewhere:
Over at Krakatau Aqua Coaster we have new roof or cabana style frame, and it is a tall one:
Closing out this weeks update, there is still lots of open space and many structures to be built. Remember we haven’t seen Runamukka Reef yet, but could this be the beginnings of it?
Stay tuned to future updates to find out! In the meantime be sure to check out our previous Volcano Bay Waterpark Construction update to see how far the progress has come!
