New amusement park opens in Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new amusement park opens its gates in Florida!

Universal Orlando opened its Volcano Bay water park Thursday.

It was designed around a south Pacific theme.

The biggest attraction--a roller coaster that takes you through a massive volcano in the middle of the park.

Crews say the Krakatau coaster is part water volcano and part fire volcano.

The park also has nearly 20 other rides, a beach, a lazy river, and a lagoon to soak up the sun.

There are no ticket booths or turnstiles in Volcano Bay. Everyone who visits is given a smart wristband that they use to pay for food and souvenirs.
