Guests at Universals Volcano Bay water theme park set to open on May 25th will experience an entirely new level of freedom that has never been experienced before, guests will be free to have fun as they enjoy the park with friends and family. There will be no more standing in long lines to experience an attraction. No more carrying wallets, cash or credit cards throughout the park. No more fumbling for a locker key.
Universal spoke to guests to ask what they like and don’t like about Water Theme Parks and designed the waterproof TapuTapu wearable to enhance fun and remove hassles.
Volcano Bay guests will use their TapuTapu wearable, which is included with admission, to virtually wait in line for rides while enjoying other areas of the park converting their queue experience into a float down a peaceful, winding river or a quick bite to eat. Their wearable will simply alert them when its time for their ride. Or, they can enjoy many TapTu Play experiences throughout the park – triggering special effects like controlling streams of water spurting from whales in Tot Tiki Reef, shooting water cannons at guests snaking down Kopiko Wai Winding River, illuminating images in the volcanos hidden caves and more.
Universal announced even more brand new TapuTapu features :-

Their wearable will automatically sync those photos to their account so that guests can view, share and purchase them at their convenience.
