Summer 2017 will see the launch of Volcano Bay in Orlando – and owners Universal Studios have promised a wearable innovation that will revolutionise guest experiences.

The TapuTapu wearable, is designed to make the guest experience throughout the entire park as hassle-free and fun-filled as possible, and have the following features –

Virtual Lines:
Guests will be able to virtually wait in line while they play in other areas of the park. The wearable will alert guests when it’s time for them to ride so they can head to the attraction.

Tap to Play
Guests will discover various “tap-to-play” experiences throughout the park – all designed exclusively for Volcano Bay by Universal’s award-winning creative team. With just a tap of TapuTapu, guests can trigger special effects like controlling streams of water spurting from whales in Tot Tiki Reef, shooting water cannons at guests snaking down Kopiko Wai Winding River and illuminating images in the volcano’s hidden caves.
