Volcano Bay: General Discussion | Inside Universal Forums
  • As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to impact everywhere, we understand our users will have a lot of questions about how it affects the theme parks. We are entering unprecedented waters, and honestly, the answer is either "yea, probably", or "Too early to tell". We just don't know specifics until the theme parks give us an answer. At this time, we're asking to please leave the COVID talk to the appropriate COVID threads, and if something officially and specifically is impacted by a closure, then we can discuss it further in the respective threads. Thank you!

Are all of the worker buildings gone now? I have no idea whether management/security offices were built on site. Where are the TM break rooms?

(i am just full of questions, aren't i)
Security building is on-site. The main TM break area/TM grill is behind Bambu. There is also an additional break area (trailer) behind Maku Puihi.

To ask about the new TapuTapus that would be rolled out in the near future, would they include the time? I thought I heard that often as a complaint, of that it isn't exactly easy to keep track of the time, unless if you had your phone or went to directly ask a tm.

Just curious, but I would think that would be a good thing to implement.
I'm curious about this two. It's certainly two-fold-
1- If it has the time, it's good for the guest- we get to see the time, which I would certainly prefer.
But
2- If it has the time- it's bad for Universal. If something says "120 minute wait" for krakatau- someone can easily see it's 10am and they'll be on by noon. If they have to pull a ride vehicle off-line, waits would go up- and people would see it wasn't 120 minutes easier. It might be a negative in Universal's eyes until they have a much better handle on the return times.

Crowds definitely getting less and less. Have a good friend there now and said he didn't have to use his Tapu Tapu until around noon. Employees told him "The park is dead today"

And he saw Leiv Schreiber there.
@Ash Looks like you've picked the perfect time to head to the park after all. No excuses now. :thumbsup:

Everyone wants this (I don't get it), but why would UOR want you to know what time it is? That's not a vacation! Would they put clocks in a casino?

Yeah, where does everyone need to be? :lol: Also, I feel like if they had a purpose s0me would deem useful outside of the park, more people would try to jack them.

I wished they had a clock a few times when my wife and I split up to do different things. Then we could've set a meeting time somewhere instead of having to stand around. Even better would be if you could ping your location to your group but that would get too complicated

VB tolerance to levels of inclement weather - out of interest does anybody have experience? When Hulk closes, do 'all' slides in VB close?

It's actually quite worse at VB...if there is inclement weather, it isn't just the slide that closes but the queues close as well. It isn't like the Hulk or other rides where you can still wait in the queue.
