Water parks can provide just as many fun memories on your Orlando vacations as theme parks, and Universal ensures you can make time for such experiences with Volcano Bay. This park offers attractions that you can enjoy solo or with a group of friends or family of all ages. You will have just as many opportunities to relax, whether it’s in the water to cool off or in a cabana to work on your tan.

Volcano Bay provides fun in the form of Krakatau Aqua Coaster, a water slide that takes you on twists and turns similar to that of a rollercoaster. Fans of high drops will want to save time for Ko’okiri Body Plunge. You can race your friends and family along rapids on TeAwa The Fearless River or enjoy a raft ride together on Honuika Moana. The park also offers more relaxing attractions in the form of the Kopiko Wai Winding River for unwinding on floats or Waturi Beach for resting by the water.

When it comes to taking a break from the thrills of your vacation, Volcano Bay’s cabanas are the perfect way to unwind. This is an opportunity to rest in the shade while your kids play at Waturi Beach, thus giving you the energy needed for the rest of the day’s activities. These cabanas feature paddle lounge chairs and small refrigerators that offer bottles of water to help you cool off in the heat. You can use the concierge service to order meals that will be delivered to your cabana. Single cabana units hold up to six people, family suite cabanas have space for up to 16 people, and you can get a beautiful view of the park on the upper levels.
