Whether it’s a holiday destination, a weekend excursion, or an escape from school and work, theme parks are attracting the young and young at heart all over the world for fun and recreation! Theme park executives are catering to those who want FUN, from Disney theme parks to local water parks. But to create fun that screams adventure and stimulation for young Indiana Jones wannabes, park planners and maintenance personnel need to build in effective and maintainable safety. Netting makes this possible.

Universal Orlando Resort, known for two of the top-10 best-attended theme parks on earth, is adding another theme park to the list, but this time a huge water park. According to Funworld, the magazine of the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) trade association, the resort opened Universal’s Volcano Bay (May 2017), “a 25-acre water theme park it hopes will set a new standard not only for water park design and theming, but also for technological integration in the attractions industry.”

The magazine also noted, “The thrilling slides and rides are the attendance draw, and Volcano Bay delivers big in this department. From a high-speed plunge to winding body slides and twisting drop slides, there is no shortage of intense experiences. Plus, one of the best water coasters anywhere journeys into and out of the volcano.”

To encompass this excitement and make it safe requires incredible design and engineering expertise. Who did the designers of Volcano Bay select to provide the barrier netting for a totally fun and safe experience? Pucuda-Leading Edge.
