    Is Tapu included with admission, or is it something you pay extra for like the Express passes at the theme parks?

    Are they expected to sell express passes for VB? Based on @Magic Feather 's post, it sounds like they might have 2 lines.

    Two, Honu Honu (sweeping wall), and Ika Moana (damaged mid construction), and yes, uni is opening a "Moana" attraction before Disney. Both will be Proslide Cloverleaf tube rides.

    So there could be an express line for each slide. Why else would they have 4 lines for 2 slides?

    Someone on another site mentioned pricing should become available for adding VB to UO APs. Any guesses as to how much that would be? Disney is 115 for both, I really hope it doesn't go any higher than that.

    I just scheduled a trip for this summer. We arrive on 05/31 which puts me in a bit of a weird situation ticketwise. I currently have the following ticket options:

    1. Buy a three-park ticket which won't be active until 06/01
    2. Buy a 2-park ticket which doesn't include Volcano Bay
    3. Buy a season pass which doesn't include Volcano Bay

    I called Universal yesterday and there advice was "Don't buy anything yet. There are more options coming." They didn't provide any additional info. I don't think the guy I talked to knew anything more than that.

    Best bet right there. Not like they will run out of tickets to sell you.

    For sure. When a company tells me not to give them my money just yet, I'm going to listen to that advice.

    That Wall slide is actually a world's first... The first ever Double Wall hybrid slide where you will have two of the walls elements back to back. Universal and their unnamed slide supplier have quite a few tricks in store for us..

    You mean Proslide? I'm curious what else they could have in store...pretty much everything in the park is in their current catalog. I'm interested to see what comes down the road...

    That is a crazy drop for a waterslide. I'm assuming it's the water coaster.
