Volcano Island Indoor Water Park Resort

By

It's Not Open Yet!:

Note that the Volcano Island Indoor Water Park Resort was scheduled to open in 2010, but has been delayed.

Overview:

The Volcano Island Indoor Water Park Resort is planned to be a medium-sized indoor water park with tropical theming. For its size, it will feature a generous array of attractions including a Zip uphill water coaster, a FlowRider surfing attraction, a family raft ride, a bowl ride, a lazy river, and an indoor/outdoor spa. It will also offer an interactive play center with small slides and a tipping bucket. The bowl ride will feature a volcano theme. Every few minutes the "volcano" will "erupt."

In addition to the indoor water park, Volcano Island will offer some outdoor water park attractions during the warmer seasons, including a wave pool and a tube slide. Weather permitting, a section of the lazy river will also flow outdoors. Other features of the resort will include 300 guest suites, a video arcade, a dry play structure, meeting and conference facilities, function rooms, and restaurants.
