Universal's Volcano Bay

Editors' Choice – This water theme park is one of three parks at the Universal Orlando Resort in Florida. Volcano Bay is Orlando's most elaborate water park and was built 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 guests. 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 is designed to be calmer with fewer waves. River Village features attractions for families and younger guests, including the Kopiko Wai Winding River, a gently 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.

Volcano Bay can be experienced year-round. The pools and slides are heated during the winter months for your enjoyment.
