The 10 Best Rides At Volcano Bay Water Park Guide

If you’re looking for a place to cool off and have some fun this summer, look no further than Volcano Bay! This water park is one of the most popular attractions in Orlando, and for good reason. With its massive slides, lazy rivers, and Wave Pool, there’s something for everyone. From the thrill rides to the relaxing pools, we’ll help you plan your visit so you can make the most of your time at this one-of-a-kind water park.

As one of Universal Orlando Resort’s three theme parks, Volcano Bay is comparably small to its sister parks, Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure. However, don’t let that fool you—Volcano Bay is still packed with plenty of attractions, dining, and shopping options to enjoy. The park is designed around the 200-foot-tall Krakatau volcano, which serves as the centerpiece for the park. The volcano has three slides coming out of its crater, as well as a lazy river that winds its way through the park. In total, there are 19 different attractions at Volcano Bay, including body slides, raft rides, and even a multi-person zip line.
