Universal’s Volcano Bay™ water theme park
The lowdown: Opening early summer 2017, Volcano Bay at Universal Orlando is a brand new water theme park centred around a staggeringly steep volcano. Here you get a new kind of park – no standing in long queues – all thanks to water. Paddle in it, wallow in it, splash it about. And allow a full day for all the rides and slides.
Head straight to the volcano, the centre-piece to this brand new water theme park experience without standing in long queues.
Loews Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Orlando
The lowdown: Don’t worry, be happy. Now open, this colourful, cool hotel lays back around a charismatic ruined turret and the biggest pool at any Universal Orlando hotel. It’s got a Caribbean feel, but the great dining ranges from poolside tapas to fresh, sharp ceviche.
