2 Min Read

Universal Orlando released some exciting details about their new water park, Volcano Bay!

The park sits on 28 acres and will “transport you to a lush, tropical oasis inspired by the Pacific isles.” There will be drop slides, a white-water action river and a soothing winding river. Volcano Bay is made up of four themed areas with Polynesian influences ranging from Easter Island, Hawaii, New Zealand and More.

The centerpiece of the park is a 200-foot-tall volcano called Krakatau. “By day, you’ll see its majestic waterfalls. And by night, the volcano will illuminate with blazing lava.”
Here’s more details from Universal about it:

Three distinctive body slides are found at the rear of the volcano, and each starts off with surprise doors that drop out from beneath you:

  • Ko’okiri Body Plunge: A racing, 70-degree drop that will plummet 125-feet through the center of Krakatau. It will be the world’s first slide to travel through a pool filled with guests.
  • Kala and Ta Nui Serpentine Body Slides: Two intertwining slides where you’ll fall freely along 124 twisting feet.

Punga Racers: A high-speed race through four different enclosed slides featuring manta-shaped mats.
