In just a few days, Universal Orlando’s biggest expansion in more than a decade will be unveiled. With a majestic volcano at its center, Universal’s Volcano Bay will welcome visitors and families beginning May 25. This water theme park is a first-of-its-kind – aquatic adventure with thrilling and fun attractions for children and adults alike. The team at Undercover Tourist has put together a few tips to help you create an unforgettable experience when visiting.

 

Volcano Bay is made up of four unique areas, each of which cater to a different style of visitor. They each have a unique feel, style and theming, with fun rides and attractions Each of these areas are inhabited by the local people of Volcano Bay, the Waturi. According to legend, a mythical golden fish appeared and lead the Waturi people across many Polynesian islands and cultures, eventually leading them to the enchanted island of Volcano Bay, built around the mighty Krakatau’s volcano, and they’re inviting you to visit!

 

One of the unique features at Volcano Bay will be the TapuTapu wearable. These wristbands are included with admission and will allow guests to reserve times at selected attractions. No more waiting in long lines or even carrying tubes around with you throughout the park. But, that’s not all the TapuTapu can do. Hidden secrets and interactive experiences are scattered across the park, just waiting to be found. From shooting water cannons at guests riding rides, to interactive light-up experiences in some of Krakatau Volcano’s hidden caves.

 

There are numerous experiences, attractions and slides at Volcano Bay, but here are a few that we recommend as can’t miss:

 

  • Ko’Kiri Body Plunge: For those brave enough, tackle the thrills on a 125-foot slide that plunges at a 70-degree drop.

  • Runamukka Reef: A three-story water playground inspired by the coral reef will delight young children and families with twisting slides, sprinklers and more.

 

  • Krakatau Aqua Coaster: This is the big one. An aqua coaster like no other that pulls out all the stops. This coaster will send you shooting through dark twists and turns, ending with a grand finale that sends guests plunging through a waterfall. A must ride!

 

These are just a few things that can be found at this amazing addition to Universal Orlando. Ready to go? Undercover Tourist is selling tickets for opening day and throughout the summer that will get you not only into Universal’s Volcano Bay, but Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure too!
