There is an exciting new addition coming to Universal Orlando Resort. Opening early Summer 2017, Volcano Bay is not just a water park, it’s a water theme park. Inspired by the Pacific Isles, this 28-acre water park will be unlike any other in the entire world. And here’s why.
Ko’okiri Body Plunge. A 70-degree drop that will plummet 125-feet through the center of the volcano.
Kala and Ta Nui Serpentine Body Slides. Two intertwining slides where you’ll fall along 124 twisting feet.
Punga Racers. A high-speed race through four different enclosed slides.
Krakatau Aqua Coaster. Yes, you read that right. An aqua coaster. It will be the first-of-its-kind aqua coaster in all of Florida. This specially designed canoe will propel you and your family downwards AND upwards through the volcano.
Kopiko Wai Winding River: A calm river that will go inside the volcano’s caves. With spontaneous water effects and other exciting surprises along the way.
Tot Tiki Reef: A toddler play area with fountains, slides and a kid-size volcano.
Runamukka Reef: A three-story water playground with slides and sprinklers.
Honu: A multi-passenger raft thrill ride.
Ika Moana: A multi-passenger raft ride.
Maku: Multi-passenger rafts speeding around three saucer-shaped curves.
Puihi: A multi-passenger raft ride with a zero-gravity drop.
Ohyah and Ohno Drop Slides: Two slides that launch you above the water.
TeAwa The Fearless River: Racing, whitewater rapids.
Taniwha Tubes: Four slides with rafts for single or double riders.
Puka Uli Lagoon: A lazy river/pool.
There are so many thrilling rides and attractions to be excited about, but Universal didn’t stop there. When you arrive at Volcano Bay, you will receive a TapuTapu Wearable band. Guests will be able to virtually wait in line while enjoying other areas of the park, and be alerted when it’s time to ride. This is going to be the new standard for water parks everywhere. So thank you, Universal.
Not only will TapuTapu eliminate waiting, but it will also give you access to tap-to-play. Tap-to-play will allow you to trigger special effects throughout the water park. Control spurts of water, shoot water cannons, illuminate images in hidden caves and more.
