Universal Releases Water Park Details

Universal Orlando has released some details about its new water park, Volcano Bay, which the company promises will be up and running by June 1, 2017. The park will feature 18 attractions, including a wave pool with sandy beaches, a winding river with special light and water effects, a raft ride with saucer-shaped curves, and a centerpiece faux volcano featuring a slide with a 70-degree, 125-foot drop. 

Somewhat more mysteriously, Universal says it will "redefine the queue experience so guests can focus entirely on having fun and spending time together" instead of waiting in lines. No further details were offered on that score, except that you evidently won't have to lug your own water tube up to the top of the slides. No word yet on how Universal is gonna do that. Maybe teleportation?
