Universal's Volcano Bay

Universal's Volcano Bay - Make Waves

A spectacular volcano towering over a sun swept beach. Swaying palm trees lining your path through a picturesque island escape. It’s a South Seas oasis right in the heart of Universal. Volcano Bay is the only water theme park that gives you the freedom to spend more time with your family, doing the things you want to do thanks to the Virtual Line. From thrilling water slides to secluded waterfalls, it’s the perfect place to get away from it all – a beach paradise you can enjoy without ever leaving Orlando.

Please note: Universal Volcano Bay is closed on select dates during the autumn and winter seasons. Guests should check here for updates.

TapuTapu™

TapuTapu Puts The Wonders Of Volcano Bay Right At Your Wrist

At Volcano Bay every guest is granted the powers of the TapuTapu, a waterproof wearable specifically designed for the park. With just a touch of your wrist you’ll be able to hold your place in a Virtual Line at the rides and discover wondrous surprises around the park.


Universal's Volcano Bay Attractions

Honu of Honu ika Moana

Experience the twists and turns of underwater currents just like Honu, the sea turtle. Four people hang on tight as their raft sweeps up two massive walls, through ocean mists and down into sparkling pools in this thrilling adventure.

Volcano Bay Krakatau

Krakatau Aqua Coaster

Honorary Waturi can experience the power of Krakatau on this amazing ride. Four-person canoes slide upward through the mists and into the dark twists and turns within the volcano before emerging with a plunge through a shimmering waterfall. 

Ohno of Ohyah & Ohno Drop Slides

To achieve even greater bragging rights, brave the rope bridge and take the plunge down the Ohno Slide, a serpentine adventure that ends six feet above the pool below. Be sure to yell your battle cry on the way down.

Runamukka Reef

Runamukka Reef

Once an exotic coral reef beneath the ocean, Runamukka Reef is now a favourite play place for young Waturi children with its bubbling geysers, water guns, slides and dump cups. Shaded by fanciful bamboo sea creatures and waving seaweed, it’s the most playful spot in Universal’s Volcano Bay. 

Kopiko Wai Winding River™

Wanting something a bit more chilled? Take a slow ride on the Kopiko Wai Winding River through the tropical landscape of Universal’s Volcano Bay, a land full of surprises. Sprays of water surprise along the way, and beneath the lava rocks, Stargazer’s Cavern reveals the magical night sky above.

As well as these five, you can also add a whole host of other Universal's Volcany Bay attractions to your must-see list, including enjoying a dramatic group lava tube path on Maku of the Maku Puihi Round Raft Rides, 125 feet of white-knuckle fun on Ko'okiri Body Plunge, or simply relaxing at The Reef - with it's private waterfall and leisuresly waters.
