INSIDE LOOK: Volcano Bay’s centerpiece mountain hides thrilling surprises at Universal Orlando

in Theme Parks, Universal Orlando

Thrill seekers beware! The attractions inside the Krakatau volcano at Universal Studio’s Volcano Bay are going to blast you to new heights of aquatic amusement.

The 200-foot-tall mighty “fire and water” volcano, located in the center of the park, streams waterfalls during the day and fiery lava light effects at night. The volcano also houses some of the park’s wildest attractions.


Upon entering the volcano, be sure to experience the power of Krakatau. Krakatau Aqua Coaster is where guests in groups of four can slide through mists and into dark twists and turns that make up the massive volcano. The ride ends with guests plummeting through a shimmering waterfall.

Guests can also experience the Kala & Tai Nui Serpentine Body Slides. This attraction lets visitors join Kala and Tai Nui in a free fall jump from the top of the volcano by two twin drop doors that simultaneously plunge guests into intertwining, clear tubes. The great fall will have you screaming for your life before you splash into the calm waters below the daring descent.

Another water ride to keep you shaking with excitement is the Ko’okiri Body Plunge. This experience mirrors the Kala & Tai Nui Serpentine Body Slide as it has guests taking a great fall. This attraction is a 70-degree, 125-f00t free fall that will have you begging the Waturi gods for mercy.

One last water ride that might bring out your competitive side is the Punga Racers. This attraction is geared for children of all ages as guests can ride by themselves on a manta ray mat that slides through underwater sea caves. If you’re the first to cross the finish line, you can receive a watery salute from Punga himself.

If you want to experience this aquatic adventure be sure to purchase tickets on Universal’s Volcano Bay page.
