Usually journalists do not tend to type “cold weather” and “Florida” in the same sentence, but this week it has, in fact, been happening. Following a cold streak that led Disney World’s Typhoon Lagoon to shut down just shortly after it opened, Universal Orlando followed suit with its own water park, Volcano Bay. Over the weekend, the city saw somewhat lower-than-normal temperatures in the usually balmy state and the park shut down for a spell. Of course, the theme park had a great response to the maybe not-so-great news.  

Volcano Bay was shut down by Universal Orlando over the weekend, and it was for more than a one-day closure. The popular water park destination was confirmed to be shutting down through at least Tuesday, January 18 at the time the theme park made the announcement. This decision was distinctly due to the cold spell that hit the area over the weekend. When I looked yesterday, the low overnight was in the mid-forties, and while that was in the middle of the night, the high in the fifties wouldn’t exactly have been water park weather either.
