Universal's Volcano Bay is now officially open

Posted By on Thu, May 25, 2017 at 10:36 AM

Volcano Bay, Universal's new water theme park, has officially opened today.

This morning's grand-opening celebration included an elaborate ceremony involving drummers, singers, outrigger canoes and, of course, the "native" Waturi islanders.

To mark the official opening, islanders handed Universal president Bill Davis a ceremonial “lotus stone,” which then caused an eruption from the Krakatau volcano, which you can see in the video above.
