We are annual visitors to Universal and last year we arrived just days after Volcano Bay opened. The reviews were overwhelmingly terrible so we skipped it and waited another year. Before our visit this year I did a lot of research to ensure we had a great time. We decided to go on a Monday ( their least busy day) and take advantage of the early admission staying at the Hard Rock affords its guest. We brought towels from the hotel, swimming shoes and lots of sunscreen. Working your way from the back of the park to the front of park is another useful tip. We arrived by 8 and had ridden everything by 11:30 with little to no wait times.
As we were leaving wait times were soaring to 120 minutes.
Every employee was friendly and able to answer a question. The park itself is very clean and beautifully decorated.
The Tapu bands are quirky and can fall off easily. Plus shade is hard to come by( this is why I subtracted one star)
The rides are thrilling and fun just arrive early and avoid the weekends to ensure a fun time.
