Theme Park News

Volcano Bay, Universal’s new water park, officially opens May 25, 2017, and with the all-new rides, slides, wave pools and lazy rivers comes a brand new technology that is changing the way guests wait in line.

The TapuTapu Wearable is the newest technology to hit Orlando and will transform guest’s wait time experiences. The wearable wristbands will be given to guests upon arrival to Volcano Bay. The band has several different features, the most exciting being its ability to be a virtual “placeholder” at the park’s many attractions. The TapuTapu Wearable also lets guests get hands-on at the park with Tap Tu Play.

So how does the TapuTapu Wearable work? It’s simple. Choose a ride or attraction. The TapuTapu Wearable will give you a time to come back so you won’t have to wait in the long line. While you wait, explore the rest of Volcano Bay including its relaxing Waturi Beach, Tewa The Fearless River, or any other attraction that doesn’t have a long wait time. When it is your turn to ride your attraction of choice your TapuTapu will alert you.

Guests can also become a part of Volcano Bay’s features thanks to the “tap-to-play” experiences available with the TapuTapu. With the unique Tap To Play, Volcano Bay guests can activate several different water features and elements throughout the park like lets streams of water in Tot Tiki Reef, water cannons in Kopiko Wai Winding River and even the opportunity to illuminate images in Volcano Bay’s massive volcano.

Stay tuned for more details on Volcano Bay’s opening and the TapuTapu Wearable.
