(Next 3 Days)

Volcano Bay is rated 4.5 out of 5.0, based on 24 reader surveys assessing its attractions. (See our Ratings and Research page for details.) Volcano Bay is located at 6000 Universal Blvd in Orlando, FL. Its phone number is (407) 363-8000.

Universal's Volcano Bay opened to the public on May 25, 2017.

Billed as a "water theme park," Volcano Bay is based on the lifestyle of the fabled Waturi islanders. "Water is Life. Life is Joy." is the mantra of Universal's first water park—a water park that contains some of the inventive technology expected from the Universal theme park division. With four areas and 18 attractions, there certainly is plenty to do.

One of the more fascinating aspects of Volcano Bay is the inclusion of TapuTapu, a FastPass+ style system that allows guests to skip the lines. Where it differs from FastPass is that there is no standby line at all; guests save their places in line with their TapuTapu wearables, allowing them to do other things as they await their turns.

Volcano Bay is located right next to the Cabana Bay Beach Resort, making it easily walkable from both that and the Sapphire Falls Resort. Other resort guests and day guests take frequent shuttles to the water park.
