For summer 2017 Universal debuted Orlando's most elaborate water park– Volcano Bay.
This water theme park is one of three parks at the Universal Orlando Resort in Florida. Volcano Bay is themed around a 200-foot tall man-made volcano named Krakatau. Inside this enormous themed structure are three drop slides, including the 125-foot tall Ko'okiri Body Plunge, the world's tallest body slide in North America and the first to travel through a pool full of park visitors. Krakatau also houses Kala & Ta Nui Serpentine Body Slides that are intertwined with the Krakatau Aqua Coaster.
The park's lineup of attractions also includes two wave pools – Waturi Beach and The Reef – the latter designed to be calmer with fewer waves. River Village features attractions for families and younger guests, including the Kopiko Wai Winding River, a gentle flowing lazy river that passes through the volcano. For toddlers the Tot Tiki Reef is a water play area and for older children the Runamukka Reef is a three-story tall water fortress with interactive features and small body slides.
Volcano Bay has a large collection of water slides of all kinds, shapes, and sizes. Honu, Maku and Puihi are multi-passenger raft slides. Punga Racers is a four-lane racing mat slide with mats that resemble a manta ray. Taniwha Tubes are four single or double rider tube slides.
