Universal Studios’ new water park, Volcano Bay, opened its doors to eager guests on May 25th, capping off an extensive project that eventually replaced the old Wet ‘n Wild park.

However, one feature has all the guests and theme park experts talking—the arrival of Universal’s own wristband technology.

Similar to Disney’s popular MagicBand, Universal Studios’ new TapuTapu bands enable guests to engage in a virtual park attendance experience at Volcano Bay.
