Look up — way up — as you approach Universal Orlando® Resort. You’ll see it towering over its surroundings, majestic and sublime. It’s the mighty, 200-foot-tall Krakatau™ volcano … and it’s beckoning you to the adventure of a lifetime at Orlando’s newest water park, Universal’s Volcano Bay™! Settled by the legendary Waturi people and guided by their philosophy, “Water Is Life and Life Is Joy,” Universal’s Volcano Bay offers equal measures of intense action and tranquil serenity, buoyed by resort-level amenities, food and beverages with a South Pacific vibe. Whether you want to plummet down hair-raising slides, drift along a lazy river, or just relax beachside with a tropical drink, there’s no wrong way to enjoy island life at Universal Orlando Resort. 

Naturally, Krakatau serves as the center of the action — literally. Here, you can brave the volcano on your own at Ko’okiri Body Plunge and Kala & Tai Nui Serpentine Body Slides, or grab a mat and go head-to-head against other daredevils at Punga Racers. And for the ultimate challenge, your whole crew can board a four-person canoe for the park’s signature Krakatau Aqua Coaster. 

More thrills await at Rainforest Village, starting with the dual raft-racing tracks at Tonga of Taniwha Tubes. Need a bigger raft? Look no further than the six-person Maku Puihi Round Raft Rides! You can also challenge yourself to the Ohyah & Ohno Drop Slides — which deposit you four feet above a pool — or a white-knuckle, white-water adventure on TeAwa the Fearless River. 

Rainforest Village also has its peaceful side as evidenced by the Puka Uli Lagoon, and you’ll find more ways to unwind at Wave Village’s Waturi Beach and The Reef. But for maximum relaxation, head to River Village. In addition to kid-friendly fun at Tot Tiki Reef, Runamukka Reef and Honu ika Moana, this area also features the Kopiko Wai Winding River, which runs through the entire park with plenty of surprises along the way. 

While you’re at Universal’s Volcano Bay, you’ll be able to take advantage of Universal Orlando Resort’s TapuTapu™ wearable technology — a wristband provided to all guests that eliminates the need to wait in long lines. Instead, just swipe your band against special totems at attractions to get a designated start time. You can also use it to discover astonishing secrets throughout the park.
