Universal Orlando Resort is the master of thrilling theme parks and exciting entertainment, and on May 25, 2017, they’re upping the ante with an explosive new park. Using innovative technology and the power of the mystical Waturi, Universal’s Volcano Bay ™ is a water theme park experience like no other.
Feel The Power
Volcano Bay™ is an impressive sight to behold from the moment you step through its gates. As you gaze at the mighty Krakatau™ volcano towering over the lush waterscape, take a moment to receive a warm welcome from the Waturi where they will bestow upon you a powerful tool, the TapuTapu™ wearable.
This clever device marks the end of standing in long lines. With a tap of your wrist, this waterproof wearable can hold your spot in the Virtual Line™. Go play around the park. The TapuTapu will tell you when it’s time to head back to the ride. As you explore all of Volcano Bay™, your TapuTapu™ wearable can unlock interactive surprises around the park.
Krakatau™ Is King
Not only is Krakatau™ volcano the visual centerpiece of Volcano Bay™, it’s the epicenter for the park’s most daring rides and slides. With waterfalls flowing freely during the day and glowing lava effects lighting up the night, the Volcano challenges the brave at heart to take on its most bold attractions.
Feel the volcano’s awesome power on the Krakatau™ Aqua Coaster, a fast-paced canoe ride that twists and turns through misty caverns and under a shimmering waterfall. Pay homage to the volcano god Vol by taking the Ko’okiri Body Plunge™, a 70-degree fall through a drop door down a 125-foot slide. If you’re in the mood for some friendly competition, grab the entire family for a speeding match through caves on Punga Racers™. Do you dare conquer all the thrills of Krakatau™ volcano?
It Takes A Village – Or Three!
Once you’ve mastered the mighty volcano, spend the day exploring the three Waturi villages that surround its base. Chill out from your adventures by lounging on the sandy beach or floating in the warm lagoon in the Wave Village.
Or discover the perfect balance of heart-pounding action and calming recreation in the Rainforest Village. Thrill-seekers can take on the roaring rapids of TeAwa The Fearless River™ in individual inner tubes or grab their most courageous friends for a six-person adventure on the Maku Puihi Round Raft Rides™. Choose between the Maku of the Maku Puihi Round Raft Rides™, a speedy ride through a deep volcanic gorge before spinning wildly around bowl-like formations, and the Puihi of the Maku Puihi Round Raft Rides™, with its zero-gravity hang time before it plunges you safely to the bottom. If you’re yearning for a slower pace, hang out in Puka Uli Lagoon™ where little Waturi can play in splashing water while you kick back and relax in the sun.
Guests of all ages will find overflowing fun in the scenic River Village. Take the kids to Tot Tiki Reef™ and Runamukka Reef™ to play among small slides, bubbling geysers, and friendly tikis and whales that sing and spray water. Take an exciting ride down Honu of the Honu ika Moana™ two slides, or slow things down with a relaxing float through the tropical landscape on the Kopiko Wai Winding River™. This village is the perfect spot for bonding with the entire tribe.
From the magic of the Waturi people and the powerful TapuTapu™, to the electrifying Krakatau™ Volcano and the three exhilarating villages, Universal’s Volcano Bay™ delights around every bend.
