Universal Orlando has announced that they will be closing down the famous Wet 'n Wild Orlando waterpark on December 31, 2016. It is sad to see what is commonly known as the birthplace of the modern waterpark experience close, but it will be replaced by Universal's Volcano Bay, which promises to offer a "next-generation" experience as a "water theme park that reimagines what it means to be a water park."
