After being closed for several months, the splash pad at Universal CityWalk Orlando has reopened.

The splash pad has been closed since at least September 2022, when construction walls went up around it. A fake patch of grass was placed over it during the holidays, and then construction walls were back up during the first few months of this year.

The splash pad is outside the Universal Legacy Store. The floor of it is made of wavy stripes. There are small metal railings around it.

The splash pad looks the same, so the closure may have been for maintenance of the water spouts.

It’s a great place for kids and adults to cool off — if you don’t mind getting wet. Watch a video of the water effects in action in our embedded Tweet below.

CityWalk is a shopping and dining complex at the entrance to Universal Orlando Resort free to enter. Guests walk through it to reach Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

In addition to restaurants like Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen and Pat O’Brien’s, CityWalk has an AMC movie theatre and Universal’s Great Movie Escape. The latter attraction features escape rooms inspired by “Jurassic World” and “Back to the Future.”

For the first time this year, CityWalk and Universal’s Islands of Adventure participated in Mardi Gras: International Flavors of Carnaval.

The Red Coconut Club has been rethemed throughout the past year to reflect different holidays and Universal Orlando Resort festivals. Most recently, it’s been The Cursed Coconut Club for Mardi Gras: International Flavors of Mardi Gras. For Halloween Horror Nights 31, the venue was transformed into a Universal Monsters theme and met with great success in its shift to the Dead Coconut Club. During the holiday season, the venue was revamped again to open as Green & Red Coconut Club, which gave the club a holiday theme replacing the monsters with Christmas trees and twinkling lights.

Universal Destinations & Experiences revealed a series of new logos, including the new CityWalk logo, in March 2023. The new neon pink Universal CityWalk logo recently debuted on a Mother’s Day sign.
