Volcano Bay Universal Orlando

Visit the world’s coolest new water park –  Volcano Bay Universal Orlando™

Volcano Bay™, Universal Orlando’s newest attraction, is a water park like no other, where every moment is inspired by the belief that ‘water is life, and life is joy’. Shoot down slides, brave water torrents, drift through a winding river, or relax in your own waterside cabana. Open since May 2017, Volcano Bay Universal Orlando™ is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. In this blog, our travel expert Ali tells you what you can expect during your visit.

The Volcano

The unmissable Krakatau Volcano stands as the centrepiece of the park. Towering at 200 feet tall, it streams waterfalls during the day and flaming lava effects at night. Inside the cavernous volcano, you can test your courage on pulse-pounding slides that take your breath away. Test out the Krakatau Aqua coaster for something different or brave the Ko’okiri body plunge, a near-vertical speed slide with a trap-door start.

Wave Village

Wave Village is the first of three villages that guests stumble upon at Volcano Bay, Universal Orlando Resort™. This tranquil escape overlooks the sparkling waters of Waturi Beach and The Reef, at the base of the volcano. Experience ultimate relaxation with one of the two-story cabanas available for guests to rent. Cool off and take a dip in one of the pools which feature gentle, relaxing waves.

River Village

The second of three villages in Volcano Bay Universal Orlando™ is the River Village. This lively village has fun for people of all ages, including the very youngest visitors. Let the little ones play in the Tot Tiki Reef area or glide through the Kopiko Wai winding river that passes through Krakatau. The decorated caves and random special effects that run along the lazy river will put smiles on everyone’s faces.


What is truly amazing at Volcano Bay™ is what you don’t see. There is no waiting in long queues for attractions or dragging rafts around the park. Every guest that enters the park is granted a TapuTapu wristband. With just one tap of your wrist, you can hold your place for your chosen ride. Once it’s your turn to ride, your wristband will vibrate to notify you. This amazing new device means you can have lunch or sunbathe and not have to worry about your place in line.

The intelligent TapuTapu wristband will also activate wondrous surprises throughout the park. Watch out for water spurts in Tot Tiki Reef, light up images within the volcano and fire water cannons at guests on the Kopiko Wai winding river. Every step you take will bring about all sorts of new experiences!

Volcano Bay Universal Orlando™ is the ideal place to make new and lasting memories with your family. Want to find out more? Contact one of our experienced team members today and let them help you find the perfect holiday deal to Orlando for you and your family.

Treat your family to the magic of Orlando, the place where there is something for everyone.
Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort, Kennedy Space Center and LEGOLAND name just a few. International Drive and Lake Buena Vista are very good areas for non drivers whilst villas in Kissimmee are ideal for those who don’t mind the driving and would like to enjoy a private pool home. Give it a go, the memories stay with you forever.
