5 Thrills We Can’t Wait to Try at Universal’s New Volcano Bay™

Universal Orlando Resort is the master of thrilling theme parks and exciting entertainment, and on May 25, they’re upping the ante with an explosive new park. Using innovative technology and the power of the mystical Waturi, Universal’s Volcano Bay™ is a water theme park experience like no other. We can’t wait to try these five high-tech experiences and rushing water thrills, along with some island relaxation.

A Wearable with Power

TapuTapu™ wearable

As you enter Universal’s Volcano Bay™, you’ll be amazed by the vast lush waterscape and the towering Krakatau™ volcano. But don’t get too distracted. The Waturi are waiting to welcome you and bestow upon you a powerful tool, the TapuTapu™ wearable. This clever device marks the end of standing in long lines. With a tap of your wrist, this waterproof wearable can hold your spot in the Virtual Line™. Go play around the park. The TapuTapu will tell you when it’s time to head back to the ride. As you explore all of Volcano Bay™, your TapuTapu™ wearable can unlock interactive surprises around the park.

Brave the Krakatau™ Aqua Coaster

Krakatau™ Aqua Coaster

Not only is Krakatau™ volcano the visual centerpiece of Volcano Bay™, it’s the epicenter for the park’s most daring rides and slides. For a thrilling ride of your life, join the bravest Waturi islanders and feel the volcano’s awesome power on the Krakatau™ Aqua Coaster. This fast-paced canoe ride twists and turns through misty caverns and under a shimmering waterfall, soaking you and your fellow riders in rushing fun.

Twice the Rush

Honu ika Moana™

If water slides are calling your name, you’ll discover two times the fun at the Honu ika Moana™. Get wet on the ika Moana of the Honu ika Moana™, which sprays water on riders from the center of the raft. Or choose the Honu slide of Honu ika Moana™ and defy gravity as your raft slides up two gigantic walls. If you love water slides as much as we do, why not try both?

Rascals on the Reef

Runamukka Reef™

There are plenty of thrills for little Waturi, too. Head to Runamukka Reef™ with its endless delights and surprises. Children will love splashing through bubbling geysers, squirting water guns, and zipping down slides their own size. This is the perfect time for moms and dads to slow things down with some relaxing moments under the shade.

Winding Down River

Kopiko Wai Winding River™

Speaking of relaxation, if you want to chill out while still getting wet, grab a tube for a scenic float down Kopiko Wai Winding River™. You’ll wind your way through the lush landscape of Volcano Bay™ while discovering surprises along the way. You might feel the cool drops of spraying water shooting out from the lava rocks. But the biggest surprise of all is found in Stargazer’s Cavern™, a brilliant cave that reveals a glistening night sky above.

We can’t wait to try these exciting experiences at Universal’s new Volcano Bay™, but this is only a small glimpse of the fun. Contact your Liberty Travel consultant to discover all the slides, rides, and rivers, and to unlock the magic of the Waturi on your own adventure to Volcano Bay™.
