Volcano Bay

Welcome to the Volcano Bay page!

The slogan of this amazing water park is: 
Water is life. Life is joy. 

Opened on May 25, 2017, Volcano Bay
is the newest theme park at Universal Orlando Resort.

The park is themed around a volcano that stands 200 feet tall and is named "Krakatau". Krakatau is not only the icon for the park, it also houses three drop capsule (you stand inside of a "chamber" and the floor drops out from beneath you) slides. Among the three slides is Ko'okiri Body Plunge, which is the tallest body slide in America. It stands at 125ft tall. Not only is it the tallest, it is the first of it's kind to travel through a pool full of guests.

Also housed in Krakatau are Kala & Tai Nui Serpentine Body Slides which twist and turn their way through the volcano. 

Krakatau Aqua Coaster: A water coaster that takes guest inside of Krakatau volcano, before plunging through a waterfall.

Punga Racers: A fun, competitive ride for you and your friends/family. This water slide is a 4 lane racing body slide!  It used to use mats, but it no longer does.

The Wave Village was designed to be a sunbathing and relaxing area. Located within the Wave Village are Cabanas.  They are 1 and 2 stories tall and can be rented by guests for the day.

Also located within the Wave Village are:

Waturi Beach: This is the main pool of the park.  The water changes from calm to little waves to bigger waves throughout the day.

The Reef: This is a pool in the park that is a little bit calmer than Waturi Beach.

Ohyah and Ohno Drop Slides: Two body slides that have big drop into splash pools.

Puka Uli Lagoon: Just a nice calm pool to relax in


The River Village section of the park is a great place for families and those guests with younger children.

Tot Tiki Reef: A fun play area for toddlers.

Honu: One of two multi-passenger raft slides that take guests for breathtaking sweeps up massive walls. The other is Ika Moana.

Kopiko Wai Winding River: The park's lazy river. This journey takes guests through Krakatau's decorated caves. 

Runamukka Reef: A 3 story tall water fortress with slides. 


Within the final section of Volcano Bay, you will find an area with a bunch of thrill slides including raft slides that can take multiple riders at once.


Maku: Proclaimed as the first of it's kind in North America, this multi-passenger slide has 3 banked saucer elements.


Puihi: Another multi-passenger raft slide, this will drop you in multiple tunnels and then a final drop.


TeAwa The Fearless River: This is not your lazy river.  Life jackets are required to go into this river. Instead of a completely calm experience, you will find a faster moving river that will take you through rapids.


Taniwha Tubes: Four raft slides. These can be ridden on your own or in pairs. 

Tapu Tapu is the wearable technology in Volcano Bay. When you enter the park, you and each member of your travel party is given a Tapu Tapu device. It is also attached to the lead guests wallet in their  Universal Orlando app. You use Tapu Tapu for virtual lines, purchases, phots, interacting with water features or illuminate the lights.  Just tap and go!  You will return the Tapu Tapu before you leave the park.
