The Four areas of Universal's Volcano Bay Orlando

Universal's Volcano Bay Orlando offer guests four imaginatively-themed areas to explore.

1. Krakatau

The 200-foot volcano, Krakatau is at the heart of the park and invites guests to venture through its hidden caverns and cascading waterfalls. Krakatau features three distinctive body slides found at the rear of the volcano, which start off with surprise doors that drop out from beneath guests
Ko'okiri Body Plunge: A racing, 70-degree drop that will plummet 125-feet through the center of Krakatau. This is the world's first slide to travel through a pool filled with guests.
Kala and Ta Nui Serpentine Body Slides: Two intertwining slides where guests fall freely along 124 twisting feet.
Punga Racers: A high-speed race through four different enclosed slides featuring manta-shaped mats.

2. Wave Village

Located at the base of Krakatau, Wave Village is home to:
Waturi Beach: A sparkling, multi-directional wave pool where guests can swim, relax on the sand or indulge in private, one- or two-story cabanas.
The Reef: An adjacent leisure pool that provides guests with calmer waters and exciting views of riders speeding through the Ko'okiri Body Plunge.

3. River Village

Named for the peaceful river that snakes through it, River Village features unique attractions for the entire family, including:
Kopiko Wai Winding River: A gentle, winding river that passes through the volcano's hidden caves, featuring spontaneous water effects and special nighttime lighting.
Tot Tiki Reef: A whimsical toddler play area with spraying Maori fountains, slides and a kid-size volcano.
Runamukka Reef: A three-story water playground inspired by the coral reef overflowing with twisting slides, sprinklers and more.
Honu: An adventurous, multi-passenger raft ride that soars across two giant, sloped walls
Ika Moana: A twisting, multi-passenger raft ride that glides across bubbling geysers.

4. Rainforest Village

Exhilarating thrills await guests in Rainforest Village, including:
Maku: North America's first "saucer ride" – sending multi-passenger rafts speeding around three saucer-shaped curves.
Puihi: A breath-taking multi-passenger raft ride that plunges guests into darkness before bursting into a funnel and launching into a zero-gravity drop.
Ohyah and Ohno Drop Slides: Two twisting, adrenaline-pumping slides that launch guests four and six-feet above the water at the end.
TeAwa The Fearless River: An action-packed, racing torrent river where guests hang tight in their inner tubes amidst roaring, whitewater rapids.
Taniwha Tubes: Four unique Easter Island-inspired slides with rafts for single or double riders.
Puka Uli Lagoon: A tranquil pool where guests can swim and relax.
