You can see from this pic that they've started to paint the exposed steel and crossbeams a purple color similar to the steel on the front of the volcano under the front platform. Whoohooo!
How crowded was it? Did you feel rushed in trying to do all the slides?Shout out to @Skold for the advice on how to attack VB. I took your advice and my family and I conquered the park yesterday!
I've been to all of the water parks in Orlando including Adventure Island in Tampa. VB, in my opinion, is the best water park that I've ever been to. KEEP THIS IN MIND THOUGH. When I say that, it means that I was able to do everything in the park and not have to deal with the craziness that is Volcano Bay and when I say that, it means that I didn't deal with the craziness TOO MUCH... that is... Volcano Bay . Yes, multiple slides broke down, even several times during the day. Yes, the park is still being worked on. There are a few things that I can nitpick and say that it should be done better, but all in all, the park is TREMENDOUS. I still prefer TL's theme over VB, but the rides at VB are top notch.
The biggest con of the day was the Kohola Restaurant & Social Club. We went during rush hour, so we knew what to expect, but wowwwww was the service slow. Just the entire process of ordering and picking up your food was poor if we were trying to be nice. I do not recommend the burgers because I didn't feel like there was much flavor to the one I had, but the chicken curry was tremendous.
Work out the kinks Universal and you'll have yourself one of the best water parks in the world.
It was slammed this past Monday and yes, we felt rushed trying to do everything. Keep in mind that we had early park access from staying at Cabana Bay so that definitely helped us hit the main things for the hour and a half that we had.How crowded was it?

From what I noticed, it still looked like they were working on the area under the volcano by TeAwa. Construction equipment was left there.From what I noticed, it still looked like they were working on the area under the volcano by TeAwa. Construction equipment was left there.
We got in at 7:30 due to staying at Cabana Bay. The aqua coaster was a ride now so we hopped on that. We did Honu after that and actually had to tap into it for a 20 minute wait. My family did Ohyea with another wait time similar to Honu. After that, we did the drop slide followed by the body plunge, each with a 30-45 minute wait. The rest of the slides were cake. Biggest issue of the day was the occasional slide breaking down and the lunch line taking us FOREVER.No problem - glad it worked!
i'm curious to hear the sequence you hit everything, and when you had to start Tap'ing!
