Universal’s Volcano Bay water theme park offers you all the relaxation and thrills you need. You can now live the Waturi way at this all-new volcano waterpark where you will experience an adrenaline rush with each water activity.
A wearable gadget called the TapuTapu wearable, allows you to avoid carrying rafts around the waterpark or queuing in long lines; nothing will come between you and a day full of fun. It is an all-new type of bliss, only a few steps away from everything Universal Orlando Hotel has to give.
Families will particularly like how the family restrooms are conveniently spread around the park such as private roll-in showers, plenty of umbrellas and seating in the sand at most rides’ end, multiple life jacket locations, and particularly TapuTapu. These small details result in a much more water park experience and relaxing theme.
Rides and Entertainment
The main feature of Volcano Bay is the 200 feet Krakatau (kra-kuh-TAU). It is Florida’s largest peak. Krakatau Volcano truly is the most incredible element of the park. It is really breathtaking from the front, with streaming waterfalls and a sight of the clear tube of its most death-defying slide and streaming waterfalls. You can even see flaming lava effects at night.
A series of stairs are visible on the back side that goes to its highest rides and a mass of tubes. It also serves as the base for four 4 different slides.
- Ko’kiri Body Plunge
- Krakatau Aqua Coaster
- Punga Racers
- Kala & Tai Nui Serpentine Body Slides
Parking and Transportation at the waterpark
Visitors not staying on-site at an official hotel will have to park in the regular Universal Orlando Resort parking structure. Universal CityWalk has a parking lot that charges a fee, but you can find free shuttles from CityWalk to Volcano Bay.
Also, there is a dedicated entrance at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, which you can use to access Volcano Bay. While it is easy for guests at Cabana Bay, any guest to the resort hotel is allowed to use it.
Benefits of Universal Volcano Bay On-Site Hotel
Apart from the incredible benefit of being near all the excitement the waterpark has to offer, it makes lots of sense to lodge at a Universal Orlando Resort hotel. Admission to Volcano Bay is guaranteed to all on-site guests at the hotel. They get to pay an early admission, which is an hour before the volcano waterpark opens.
The two resorts closest to Volcano Bay are Loews Sapphire Falls Resort and Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, though all of Universal’s hotels are easily accessible and will have free shuttles.
Universal lately opened two new towers at Cabana Bay, which are the closest to the water park. One is the Beachside Tower, where some of the family suites and rooms provide fantastic views of the park. Talking about family suites, both of these new towers feature a limited number of two-bathroom, two-bedroom suites.
