Apologies for the massive review however got some tips for anyone planning a visit..
This park is amazing, we are a family of 4 from the UK our kids are teenagers we all agree that volcano bay was our best day so far in Orlando...there are a few issues with the park, here’s a few tips:
1.Purchase your ticket in advance.. this doesn’t guarantee entry though
2.Be at the car park no later than 9am...if you get there later it will probably be at capacity you also have to go through bag searches then there’s a bus ride from the car park to the park.
3.Take some food (there’s no problem doing this) we took bread, ham, cheese, crisps, fruit and water ...we’d had an early rise so this was our breakfast which we had when we got our sunbeds, so glad we did as we were all starving!!
4.You will be able to go into the park before 10am however you won’t be allowed on the rides nor get a subbed until 10am, the latter is just stupid however here’s my tip ... queue for a subbed at the ‘premium sunbed’ spot its on your left at the right hand side of the volcano wave pool .... you’ll definitely get a subbed as the queue here was tiny, however there did seem to be enough sunbeds for everyone so I wouldn’t worry too much.
The electronic wrist ‘thingys’ worked great...honestly they did ...we got on everything, some rides more than once...the punga racers were always ride now and in between we were in the wavepool, lazy river and the other we named the ‘crazy river’ which were all brilliant, you honestly shouldn’t struggle for things to do.
5.Stay all day we were there at 8.30 and left at 5.30 the park was really starting to empty so you’ll get in more rides later in the evening.
The kids ate at the park too... these were huge portions and they shared them with us so that was an extra bonus ... beers were $7 each so me and the hubby had a few of these throughout the day!
Again the electronic wrist thingys worked great ...this means your in a virtual queue so no queueing for a ride ... my advice is definitely go but do your prep as per my tips!
