Towering over 200 feet, the mighty Krakatau™ volcano is the majestic centerpiece of Universal’s Volcano Bay. Representing fire and water, the volcano is the heart of this immersive park with cascading falls during the day that transform into lava special effects at night. It’s a theme park like no other where every guest is granted the powers of the TapuTapu™ wearable, the new way to wait in-line: virtually. With just a wave of your wrist you can hold your place in line and reveal wondrous surprises throughout the park. 

At Volcano Bay™ there’s no standing in long lines, no carrying rafts around the park, nothing between you and a full day of fun. Which means more time to careen down slides like Ko’ okiri Body Plunge, a 125-ft, 70° fall, or brave whitewater torrents of Krakatau™ Aqua Coaster, drift down Kopiko Wai Winding River™, or relax in your own waterside cabana (fees apply). If you are traveling with little ones, be sure to visit River Village, an ideal setting for everyone, especially the youngest in your group.

It’s an all-new kind of paradise at Universal Orlando Resort™, just steps away from our other theme parks, Universal’s Islands of Adventure™ and Universal Studios Florida™, spectacularly themed on-site hotels and the dining, shopping and entertainment of Universal CityWalk™.
