Our guide to Universal's Volcano Bay

Water is Life. Life is Joy. That’s the philosophy celebrated at Universal’s Volcano Bay water theme park.

Now you can live the Waturi way at this tropical getaway where thrills and relaxation flow in perfect harmony.

With over 30 unique experiences and 19 different attractions, it’s a theme park like no other and it's just steps away from the other theme parks, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida, themed on-site hotels and the dining, shopping and entertainment of Universal CityWalk.

The Volcano
At the heart of the island stands Krakatau, the mighty Fire and Water Volcano. Towering 200 feet above the tropical landscape, Krakatau streams waterfalls during the day and fiery lava effects at night. Inside the cavernous volcano, the Waturi people dare you to brave a variety of heart-pounding water slides.
