Universal Orlando’s water park, Universal’s Volcano Bay, reached capacity yesterday.
Twitter user @bioreconstruct posted aerial photos of the water park, in which guests can be seen in the wave pool, relaxing on the man-made beach and riding water slides.
In the above photo, you can see a large number of guests in the Volcano Bay wave pool as the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues globally.
It’s worth noting that Universal does have a capacity set for Volcano Bay. They also have a specific protocol when it comes to face coverings at the water park:
“Face coverings are required in retail locations and as you enter and exit the park, and we also encourage you to wear face coverings while walking around the park. Face coverings are not permitted on slides and in pools.”
Other Twitter users commented on @bioreconstruct’s photos raising concerns about the number of guests and the lack of face masks:
Just to clarify, Universal’s protocol states guests don’t have to wear them on slides and in pools.
It’s also worth noting that Volcano Bay is currently operating at a limited capacity during its phased reopening process. Consequently, the number of guests at the water park is limited compared to what it would usually be.
It’s fair to suggest that guests are flocking to the water park because of the recent announcement that Volcano Bay will be closing on select days starting next month.
