Welcome to our second installment of Volcano Bay progress! This time around we have lots of new pictures and even a new angle!

Starting off with the main feature of Volcano Bay, the volcano, we see it continues to grow:

We think the volcano still had a long way to go more similar pieces likely for it sitting nearby. It will definitely be an icon you can see from I-4:

Right up against the volcano we see the makings of a wave pool:

The slides we featured in our last update have grown quite a bit:

We can even see the end of the slides and the area where the pool they will splash into has been nearly completed:

From our new angle, underneath those slides we find the start of what is possibly a lazy river of some sort. Notice the trough:

A little closer to our new angle we find lots of support footers for something yet to be seen:

On a support building nearby we notice even more supports for this project or something else on the roof:

Another odd-shaped set of footers; is this large rectangle and nearby another smaller yet perpendicular rectangle:

Not sure what this building near the center of the picture could be:

Here’s a closer look:

But off in the distance we see even more support footers and some slide pieces waiting to find their place:

A cool new sign can be seen from an on-ramp near Cabana Bay Beach Resort showing off a cool nighttime concept from Volcano Bay:

We close out our update with a look next door at the Sapphire Falls pool area where we see a slide in place and what looks to be a pool pretty much done except for the final surfacing work:

    Think they’ll cover up those hotels in the background with a giant tree berm?

      Possibly I think they will leave the volcano visible from the freeway though it will be a great icon for the park.

        i imagine (personall) that the large dirt mound in the far corner of the lot, will stretch across the entire side of the park. It looks like the height of the dirt is just tall enough to block everything out.
