Universal Orlando is a popular tourist location, seeing thousands of Guests daily.┬áUniversal Orlando features two theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, as well as a water park called Volcano Bay.

Universal’s Volcano Bay opened in May 2017 and is themed around a tropical island paradise that was formed by a massive volcano. The centerpiece of the theme park is the Krakatau volcano, which stands 200 feet tall and features waterfalls, slides, and other water attractions.

Before Guests go to Volcano Bay, a few tips to remember is that all attractions for Volcano Bay are virtual, so no more waiting in long lines! Also, Guests will receive a TapuTapu wearable bracelet which will let Guests know when it is their turn in line, you an also use the TapuTapu to pay for food to keep your wallet dry.

Volcano Bay offers a variety of water rides and attractions, including the Krakatau Aqua Coaster, a water roller coaster that takes riders through the volcano and down steep drops; the Ko’okiri Body Plunge, a 70-degree drop slide that launches riders from the top of the volcano; and the Waturi Beach, a wave pool with a sandy beach area for lounging.

The theme park also features several other areas, including the River Village, which includes a lazy river and several family raft rides, and the Rainforest Village, which has several water slides and attractions for thrill-seekers. Volcano Bay also offers a variety of dining options, including quick-service restaurants and a full-service bar.

However, if you’re looking to get into Universal’s Volcano Bay Water Park today, you’ll be sad to know that it is at capacity. The water park reached capacity for the second time in just a few days.

Universal Orlando Resort and Walt Disney World Resort have been seeing massive crowds over the course of the last few days as spring break is in full swing. The week of Easter is always one of the busiest times of the year, but the expectation is that there will be a slight lull once spring breaks finish before we head into the summer.
