Universal Orlando has updated their website with more information on the TapuTapu wearable, the new device coming to Universal’s new water park – Volcano Bay.

The TapuTapu wearable is designed to make the guest experience throughout the entire park as
hassle-free and fun-filled as possible. As part of their admission, guests will receive a TapuTapu wearable upon arrival to the park that allows them to do the following with a simple tap:

  • Virtual Lines
    Guests will be able to virtually wait in line while they play in other areas of the park. The wearable will alert guests when it’s time for them to ride so they can head to the attraction.
  • Tap to Play
    Guests will discover various “tap-to-play” experiences throughout the park. With just a tap of TapuTapu, guests can trigger 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 and illuminating images in the volcano’s hidden caves.

We also get an idea how the TapuTapu system is intended to work with a series of images and brief descriptions. The following is from Universal Orlando’s official website:

Volcano Bay will span 30 fully immersive acres with dozens of unique attractions  that will offer something for everyone, including a multi-directional wave pool, twisting multi-rider raft rides, speeding body slides that drop from the top of the volcano into the waters below – and more.

The water park officially opens May 25th.
