Florida Guide > Miscellaneous

We were all up pretty early on Day Six we had discussed what we would do today the night before and decided depending on how Will was to either spend another day around the pool and a little bit of shopping or if Will was better to visit Studios new Water parks Volcano Bay
Everyone was raring to go so Universal studio volcano bay it was to be today, we all had breakfast and got all out swimming gear all sorted, now we have been going to Florida for many years we even have a villa out there that we rent as a vacation home but Volcano Bay is totally new to us as last time I went some two and a half years ago they were just building it.

We were in the car and heading through the busy morning traffic up to the Universal studios area in no time we pulled into the parking booth area and paid for the volcano bay parking and headed over to the right-hand side of the car park as usual with Universal it was all very organised and soon we were parked up on the very roof of the car park.

Then it’s onto a bus where you watch a short information film where it explained that you need your taputapu on your wrist to enable you to go on the rides, the taputapu is like a watch but it allows you to check into a ride its very much like getting a fast pass it gives you a time you can return to access the ride, best of all its free!

Most of the rides have a short waiting time but some have no waiting time you can ride these at any time essentially it’s a way of stopping long waiting times for any of the rides it takes a bit of getting used to but it does work.

The park has clearly been designed to rival the Disney water parks and there are a lot more rides in this single park than any of the Disney water parks its more grown up children orientated in truth, we spent a few hours on lots of rides afterward we visited Premium outlets as it is pretty closely located to volcano bay.

Premium Outlets is the best place to go shopping in my view although it does seem to be moving more upmarket with the more exclusive and more importantly expensive brands shops taking over, Shirl spent quite a lot of time looking around the Kate Spade Handbag shop where you can still get some good bargains, an hour or so later she reappeared with at least a couple of handbags!
