Are you planning a trip to Universal Orlando’s Volcano Bay? Here is our Ultimate Guide to all Volcano Bay rides and attractions. Below you can find everything you need to know about Volcano Bay’s rides and attractions.


Volcano Bay Rides 

Honu ika Moana 

At this ride spot, there are two giant slides where up to 5 people can raft the tubing course together. The two slide options are the blue slide, named Honu, and the green slide named Ika. The Honu is themed after turtles, has two large rafting walls, and is full of twists and turns. The Ika is the more easygoing of the two slide options. It is themed after whales and sprays water on your raft as you slide down to the bottom. Either course is great fun for your family to enjoy!


Kala & Tai Nui Serpentine Body Slides

The Kala and Tai Nui are two slides. These serpentine body slides have twin drop doors and open at the same time. Since this is a single-person drop slide, there are no tubes or rafts used during this experience.

Ko’okiri Body Plunge 

Below is an image of the bottom of the Ko’okiri Body Plunge slide. This slide starts inside the iconic volcano. Since this is a plunge slide, only one person can go at a time. Ko’okiri Body Plunge is a 70-degree drop slide that is 125 feet long. There are no tubes or rafts used during this experience.


Kopiko Wai Winding River 

Kopiko Wai Winding River is the lazy river at Volcano Bay. Here you can enjoy the lush scenery and relax floating your day away. You may get sprayed with water along the way as you float down the river, but overall it is relaxing. The river takes you underneath the volcano and into the stargazer’s cavern, which is magical. This lazy river is great for all ages.

Runamukka Reef 

Runamukka Reef is exactly as it sounds. It is the perfect place at Volcano Bay for children to run a muck! This area is for the little ones to let loose. There are bubbling geysers, stationary water guns, slides, and dump cups. This playful spot is a space for those little ones to keep cool.

TeAwa The Fearless River 

TeAwa The Fearless River is similarly structured to the lazy river. However, it is not a lazy river in the slightest. This river is a water thrill experience. Wearing a life vest, you race along this fast-paced river full of rapid waters and choppy waves.
