I just read that Universal just changed the configuration of the splashdown pools for their three "drop pod" serpentine slides at Volcano Bay... but even worse - they changed the weight limit on 2 of the 3 slides from 300 lbs to 200 lbs!?!? It can't be the drop pods, as 1 is still operating with a 300 lb limit. Not sure why the others were changed... but again - this probably could have been figured out with extensive testing instead of setting an unrealistic opening date to try and compete with WDW's Pandora.
Thanks for eliminating 75% of your adult male population on these slides, Volcano Bay! Can Universal do anything right lately? What a mess...
Yeah, 200 pounds is just absurd, you can be a perfectly healthy person in great shape and easily weigh more than 200 pounds. I guess the straight path drop pod slide still has a 300 pound limit which is quite a bit more reasonable, but still makes me wonder why the change on the other two?
