Universal Orlando's Volcano Bay water theme park will close for the season on November 2, the resort announced today.
Universal said that Volcano Bay has "a current planned reopening timeframe of on or before March 1" 2021. The resort also said that "we will use the seasonal closure to conduct annual maintenance on several attractions and areas of the park at the same time."
Since Volcano Bay opened in May 2017, it has operated year-round. Earlier this year, Universal announced that Volcano Bay would close on select days each week, as tourism continues to suffer during the pandemic. However, the Walt Disney World Resort also recently announced that it would keep its water parks closed until next year, so today's announcement from Universal effectively matches that.
Universal Orlando said that it will work with people who have bought tickets to the park as well as annual passholders whose passes included Volcano Bay. More details will be announced, or guests can call Universal's guest services at +1-877-801-9720.
And for team members, this means another round of furloughs, as Volcano Bay workers not assigned to the refurb or other jobs around the resort are put on leave.Tweet
