Universal’s Volcano Bay Water Theme Park

Universal’s Volcano Bay is not your typical water park. Universal Orlando Resort refers to it as Universal’s Volcano Bay Water Theme Park.

Universal’s Volcano Bay is a 28-acre water park. Its centerpiece is Krakatau, a 200-foot volcano gushing with waterfalls.

Stay on-site and receive Early Park Admission. You’ll be able to start your day an hour before the other guests arrive. The Cabana Bay Beach Resort is so close you can walk. Other on-site properties offer a complimentary shuttle bus.

TapuTapu! What’s that?

TapuTapu is a cool waterproof wristband that has numerous purposes.

What’s really cool is that you use your TapuTapu to reserve your space in line for the top attractions. I like that… A Virtual Line. No need to waste much time standing in lines. Go relax on the beach, go for a swim, float down the river, or hop on a ride that has no wait time. Whatever you want. It will vibrate to let you know it’s time to head back for the ride.

Make sure to pick your favorite top attraction first. Since it’s only going to get busier as the day goes along.

TapuTu pay wristband is used to make purchases a lot easier. No need to carry a wallet. Makes taking in the water rides a lot easier without worrying about your wallet.

Use your TapuTapu wearable to catch pictures you wouldn’t be able to otherwise. You are going to use it to activate the cameras at special photo op locations throughout Universal’s Volcano Bay Water Theme Park.
