Universal’s Volcano Bay™ – Opening 2017
Water is Life. Life is Joy. That is the mantra by which the fabled Waturi islanders have lived on their Pacific isle for centuries. Here, enchanted waters have granted them the secret of time. The Waturi found that by spending every waking second doing the things you love, with the people you love, it is possible to make happiness last indefinitely.
And now you have the opportunity to experience Waturi time at Universal’s Volcano Bay™, an adventure-drenched water theme park filled with thrills and relaxing indulgence. Here, we’ve eliminated water park hassles. No standing in long lines. No wrestling with tubes. No waiting for the fun to begin.
You can spend more carefree time drifting leisurely down a winding river, plummeting down the face of a tropical volcano, or catapulting into pools of blue water. More time reconnecting with their families. And more time kicking back in the warm tropical island breeze.
Four Villages Filled With Both Thrills and Relaxing Indulgence
The VolcanoThis fiery landmark towers over the landscape, beckoning guests to the center of this lush, tropical island.
At the heart of the island, Krakatau™, the mighty Fire and Water Volcano, towers 200 feet above the tropical landscape, streaming waterfalls during the day and fiery lava effects at night. Inside the cavernous volcano, the Waturi people dare you to brave a variety of pulse-pounding water slides.
Ko’okiri Body Plunge
Join in the centuries-old tradition of honoring the volcano god, Vol, by braving the incredible Ko’okiri Body Plunge. Featuring a 70-degree fall through a drop door and 125 feet of screaming, white-knuckle fun, this dizzying descent ends with a watery tribute from Vol himself.
Kala & Ta Nui Serpentine Body Slides
Join Kala and Ta Nui where sea and sky meet and take a leap of faith from high atop the volcano. Twin trap doors simultaneously drop two guests down clear, intertwining tubes before sending them joyfully splashing into the turquoise waters below.
A favorite among Waturi children of all ages, Punga Races send single riders on their manta ray mats sliding down four lanes through underwater sea caves.
Wave VillageThis peaceful escape overlooks the sparkling waters of Waturi Beach at the base of the volcano.
Locals know – the surf’s always up at Waturi Beach. Swim, splash and relax right along with them in the sparkling waters and warm waves of this sparkling lagoon at the foot of mighty Krakatau™.
River VillageThe scenic River Village has fun for people of all ages, including the very youngest Waturi.
Honu Ika Moana
Just like the ancient Waturi people who rode the ocean waves on friendly sea turtles and whales, guests can enjoy these two twisting, turning, multi-person slides. Honu (the sea turtle) sweeps up two massive walls, while Ika Moana (the whale) sprays water on riders from the center of the raft.
Tot Tiki Reef + Runamukka Reef
The little ones can frolic among the splashy slides and fountains of the Tot Tiki Reef toddler play area, while Runamukka Reef delights older children with its bubbling geysers, water guns, slides and dump cups.
Kopiko Wai Winding River
Take a slow ride on the Kopiko Wai Winding River. Sprays of water surprise along the way, and beneath the lava rocks, Stargazer’s Cavern reveals the magical night sky above.
Rainforest VillageRainforest Village stretches along the shores of an action-packed river and features the perfect mix of relaxation and exhilaration.
Ohyah + Ohno Drop Slides
Test your mettle and get into the Waturi spirit. Ascend cliff side and plummet down the twisting waters of Ohyah before dropping out four feet above the pool below. To achieve even greater bragging rights, brave the rope bridge and plunge down Ohno, a serpentine adventure that ends six feet above the pool below. Be sure to yell your battle cry on the way down.
Maku Puihi Raft Rides
Ready for the high adventure of the Maku Puihi lava tubes? This six-person rafting adventure is a favorite of Waturi families, but it’s not for the faint of heart. Choose one of two paths or try them both—just be ready for a thrilling ride. Puihi (Wild) careens through a dark, winding tunnel before the stomach-flipping thrill of zero gravity hang time. Maku (Wet) slides you through a deep volcanic gorge before spinning wildly around bowl-like formations.
TeAwa, The Fearless River
Up for an adventure? Take a thrilling whitewater ride along TeAwa, The Fearless River. Race along a roaring, watery onslaught of churning rapids and choppy waves hanging tight to your inner tube.
There’s a place where the puka trees grow abnormally tall. Inspired by their twisting roots, the Waturi built four twisting water slides called the Taniwha Tubes. Riders can try all four twisting tracks, but beware—mischievous Moai statues spray jets of water when you least expect it.
