Volcano Bay Will Re-open This Month at Universal Orlando Resort


Good news for all you Universal Orlando fans! The theme park has announced that they will reopen the water park on February 27th.


It was closed for the season, but now it’s coming back and I noticed that they chose to reopen days before Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park that isn’t scheduled to reopen until March 7th.

Please remember to follow the safety guidelines:

Overall, Universal’s Volcano Bay follows the same guidelines and procedures as the other theme parks. Some of the specific measures we’re taking to implement social distancing at Volcano Bay include:

  • Limited capacity on each attraction – including rivers and pools
  • For multi-person raft rides, only one travel party is allowed to ride in a single raft. Please note that Volcano Bay’s standard height and weight requirements will be applicable.
  • Lounge chairs are placed in a fashion that allows travel parties to sit together, while also maintaining at least six feet of distance between other guests.
  • Face coverings are required in restaurants, retail locations and as you enter and exit the park, and we also encourage you to wear face coverings while walking around the park.
  • Face coverings are not permitted on slides and in pools.
  • Face coverings are required for team members in “dry” roles. Team members who have “wet” roles, such as lifeguards, will wear a balaclava when they cannot socially distance.
  • These will not be worn on slides or in pools for safety reasons.
