Universal Reveals More Information About Volcano Bay

Opening in early summer 2017, Universal’s Volcano Bay will be a water theme park unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, from incredible thrills to perfected relaxation. It’ll feature dozens of attractions that offer something for everyone... that said, you will not have to stand in long lines to experience any of them.
The Universal Orlando Resort previously shared only some of the details about the brand-new Volcano Bay water park. It's finally time to learn more about it!

Krakatau Aqua Coaster
Krakatau Aqua Coaster will be a first-of-its-kind aqua coaster in Florida — and it’ll be a fun adventure for the entire family. You’ll board specially-designed canoes that seat up to four. Then, you’ll be propelled downwards – and upwards – through the volcano’s interior peaks and valleys. You’ll twist, turn and plummet along dark passageways, be launched through sparkling waterfalls and so much more.

Krakatau Aqua Coaster will use linear induction motor technology. This technology launches the canoe uphill before it immediately sends riders into a downhill plunge. This technology is also used in some of your favorite Universal attractions (like Revenge of the Mummy).

TapuTapu Wearable

One of the main goals for Universal’s Volcano Bay was to eliminate long lines and hassles so you can focus more on having fun. And with the new TapuTapu wearable, you’ll be able to do just that.

When you arrive to the park, you’ll receive a TapuTapu wearable (at no extra charge) that will allow you to do the following with a simple tap:
  • Virtual Lines: You will be able to virtually wait in line while you play in other areas of the park. The wearable will alert you when it’s time for you to ride so you can head to the attraction.
  • Tap to Play: Volcano Bay features various “tap-to-play” experiences– all designed exclusively by Universal’s award-winning creative team. With just a tap of TapuTapu, you’ll be able to trigger special effects throughout the park. You can control streams of water spurting from whales in Tot Tiki Reef, shoot water cannons at other guests snaking down Kopiko Wai Winding River and illuminate images in the volcano’s hidden caves.

Tickets Available November 15
And the best news of all is: now you can start to plan your getaway to Universal’s Volcano Bay! Tickets for the park will go on sale on November 15. More details will be revealed over time.

  1. When I was passing by the Volcano a few weeks ago, I was amazed of how tall it was. That is sure going to be eye candy when your driving by on I4 at night. Can't wait to see it completed.

  2. OK, that is impressive in every way. The ball is in your court Disney.

  3. If that cave scene is a lazy river, sign my the hell up.

  4. I'm on board. :-)
    Universal has to stop referring to it as their third theme park though. Everything still points to it becoming an elaborate water park, nothing more.

  5. In the UK, Disney market themselves as having six parks in Florida... So Universal aren't doing anything really new by selling it as the third park.
