    I mean, I think a life jacket is the least of your worries in a public pool setting ;)

    :o) Hope you get as many empty Volcano stair-climbs as last time...

    Hope is not closed for temperature when we go from UK, first time VB, second week of Feb. Please does anyone know their closure temperature?

    It looks like its going to be a little colder than I originally thought. We'll see if I can nut up and go. I'm from Texas so 60s is cold for me.

    Disney water parks used to be any day that was forecast not to go above 60. Tho I've been told since VB opened it's less clear-cut, more like a game of chicken.

    Also I’ve asked and there is no official cut off temperature for closing VB. Probably a few factors play into it.

    They probably use online ticket sales if the temperature is borderline warm enough to open.

    It appears that if the majority of the morning is going to be in the 50s, even though the afternoon might make it into the 60s, they shut it down. At least those are the projected temps in Orlando for those dates.

    Tim Tracker showed them on his video a week or two ago. He said they were better built than the originals.

    I just used the one that someone posted a few days ago. It was real cold weather so it had to be pretty recent, plus it had a segment on the rapid lazy river which no longer uses tubes, life vests only.

    If you go to his main page you can see all his videos:

    TheTimTracker - YouTube

    You can can then sort them by most popular and dated added.

    Any progress on the expansion area?
    Anything added to the cave area on the slow Lazy River?

    Thats all I can think of.
