Universal Orlando Resort Thursday announced ticket prices for its new Volcano Bay water park, with a one-day ticket running $5 more than Disney’s two competing water parks and $8 more than SeaWorld’s Aquatica.

And while the price difference is not significant, Universal is touting its newest water park as the highest-tech water ticket in town. The park that towers over Interstate 4 will offer Tapu Tapu allowing guests to wait in virtual lines for rides and the ability to control some of the rides’ components through the technology.

Universal is also billing Volcano Bay as its third theme park, joining Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure.

Interest is peaking in Volcano Bay as workers put the finishing touches on the water park, which will hold a grand opening May 25.

Universal unveiled these ticket options Thursday for Volcano Bay:

A one-day ticket to Volcano Bay is $67. Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach cost $62 for a one-day visit, while SeaWorld’s Aquatica single day ticket is $59.

A Volcano Bay Express Pass starts at $19.99 per person and lets guests bypass the water park’s virtual line experience.

A Florida resident 3-park multi-day ticket includes admission to Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Volcano Bay for $199 for adults.
