    That price is for a 8 person two bedroom suite with a view of the Volcano on the opening day of the towers. Single night rack rate. Real world pricing is about $350 if you stay a few nights during peak season and less in the off season.

    Does any one else fear that the areas like the wave pool/lazy river and sitting areas will be a disaster due to the massive crowds waiting in the virtual line?

    I don't fear it as I really don't care, but yes - I think it's inevitable that the pool and lazy river will have massive crowds.

    One thing I don't understand is how Universal is claiming this is the 3rd theme park, yet you can't access it with your annual pass.

    There's no information on annual pass access yet.

    I honestly expect that this would have been the first concern that came up when this idea was pitched, they're adding a lot like interactive environments, a sit down restaurant and various other things. I'd expect they have some sort of plan going into this. I could also be 100% wrong, but I doubt that it'll be some huge disaster.

    Also, keep in mind that there is a lazy river, a rapids and a wave pool. Having three of those kind of attractions will help vs the standard one wave pool and one river.

    Seems premature to be making that statement.

    I hope so, but given as though nothing was mentioned about AP holders, I don't think it's a good sign.

    They've done extensive testing of the system at Wet 'n' Wild, and looked at other parks that use virtual queues, so they'll have a good handle on what they need to build to accommodate the waiting guests. It's not like Disney where they pushed everyone out of the lines and then found there wasn't enough space - this will have been built into the designs from the start.

    Hope so because after thinking about it there will be many many people who are normally standing in a line that will be wandering around looking for something to do.

    Looks like someone crashed into it with a boom lift or other equipment.. What I'm wondering is, can they simply replace the damaged sections of slide or does the whole slide have to be replaced as a whole? If its the latter, that's gotta suck for who ever caused the damage $$$$

    I have not seen this posted here yet and thought it was interesting. They are really pushing the technological parts of the design (Virtual Queue) and it appears this park will be open into the night with specialized nighttime entertainment; which is different from all other water park offerings in the area.

    I'm hoping to have a half day at a water park next year, and I was thinking about Volcano Bay, but that doesn't look like a possibility since I'll be staying on Disney property and only spending a day at the Uni parks :(

    Is that the new Cabana Bay Tower in the video? It looks more like the new Adventura hotel, but I think there is a road between Adventura and Volcano Bay.

    In either case, I want to stay there! :)

    It's Cabana Bay. That hotel is right next to the park. Close enough for a walking path.
