The Basics

Visit Volcano Bay for a day of family fun. Enjoy a variety of water slides, a beach area, a winding river, and other attractions. The highlight of the park is the Krakatau Aqua Coaster, which features 4-person canoes that twist and turn and then plunge through a waterfall.

Visitors can enjoy Volcano Bay on its own or buy multi-day, multi-park tickets and pair a visit with trips to Universal’s other attractions. Volcano Bay issues a wearable device that allows visitors to stand in virtual lines so that you can spend more time exploring the park and less time waiting. You can also buy express passes that allow you to skip the lines entirely for one visit to each ride.
