First Look: Inside Universal’s Volcano Bay

Universal’s Volcano Bay opens May 25
 
The grand opening of Universal’s Volcano Bay is right around the corner on May 25, and Best of Orlando is excited to share a sneak peek inside the all new water theme park.  
 
We’ll start with the incredible attention to detail that encompasses several different tropical islands. The park will transport guests to an island getaway with hundreds of tiki faces hidden amongst rocks and volcanoes. Lush landscapes made up of thousands of palm trees and flowers are at every turn and colorful carvings and artwork of the native Waturi people will help you understand their journey of discovering Volcano Bay. 
 
Experience 18 slides at Universal’s Volcano Bay
 
The park has a wonderful way of keeping guests on their toes through thrill rides and attractions while also keeping you relaxed and refreshed with sandy beaches and a winding river. Thrill seekers can experience 18 slides including the first-of-its-kind aqua coaster, Krakatau Aqua Coaster. If you’d like a little relaxation between thrills take a dip in the pool, grab a pair of loungers or a private cabana on Waturi Beach and enjoy the gorgeous volcano that sits at the park’s center.  
 
Another fun thing to experience at Volcano Bay is the TapTu Play experiences throughout the park. Thanks to the new TapuTapu Wearables, guests will be able to trigger special effects with just a tap of the wristband. Effects include shooting water cannons and illuminating images in the volcano’s hidden caves.   
 
Enjoy a new level of freedom with Universal’s TapuTapu Wearable
 
In addition to triggering these effects, the TapuTapu Wearable takes the wait out of waiting in line by letting you reserve your ride time. With TapuTapu you can also TapTu Pay – make purchases throughout the park, take advantage of interactive photo apps and access your locker with just a touch!
