Ready for that much needed staycation? Universal Orlando is ready to offer it to you — at a pretty good price. Florida residents can now upgrade to add Universal’s Volcano Bay water park to an existing ticket for $25. 

The deals started last month, when Universal Orlando began offering its 2-Park, 3-Day tickets for $159.99. With the addition of Volcano Bay, guests can enter all three parks and experience all that Universal Orlando has to offer.

The newest addition to Universal Orlando’s parks, Volcano Bay has more than a dozen attractions within — like the Ko’okiri Body Plunge, Krakatau Aqua Coaster, Puka Uli Lagoon, TeAwa The Fearless River, Kopiko Wai Winding River and more. 

The promotion is available through April 4, with a valid promo code. Promo codes can be found from Coca-Cola, Coke Zero Sugar or on specially-marked cups at participating Wendy’s locations. 

Note: Guests who have already purchased the offer and would like to take advantage of the addition of Volcano Bay should visit Guest Services at any of Universal Orlando’s three theme parks. 

Another great part about this offer? The park tickets can be used on Mardi Gras days. So not only do you get standard admission to the Universal parks, but you can enjoy all of the benefits of Universal’s Mardi Gras Celebration with no additional cost. 

Universal’s Mardi Gras is happening nightly, now through April 4. The festivities include Cajun food, drinks and entertainment, including a parade and live music by some of the top chart’s biggest names. 

See some of the Mardi Gras performers: 

March 9 — Becky G

March 10 — Sean Paul 

March 16 — Steve Miller Band

March 17 — Ziggy Marley

March 23 — NF

March 24 — Pitbull
