Volcanos in Florida? Oh yeah, it’s kind of a thing! With all the grandeur of the real deal minus the danger, Universal Orlando's Volcano Bay has become a worldwide destination. While this volcano won’t be erupting with anything life-threatening, you can cool down from the scorching Florida sun in its pools, lazy rivers, and thrilling water rides.
Island life isn’t all sunshine and coconuts, there are a lot of perils that come along with it. Molten lava and dangerous surf are just a few on the list, and Volcano Bay has taken out all the hazards but none of the thrills.
From the Krakatau Water Coaster with its four-person canoe to the totally-not-terrifying-just-kidding-you’ll-probably-pee-your-pants Kala & Tai Nui body slides, Volcano Bay is definitely not lacking in scream-worthy attractions.
Of course, there are plenty of spots for a little bit of downtime, too. Or a lot of downtime for those of you really looking to rest and relax. It’s your vacation, after all, no judgment here.
Then of course there are the refreshing waters of Waturi Beach, where you’ll get the most perfect view of the majestic volcano.
And if you’re really looking to get away from the crowds, you can even rent a cabana to lounge in, either on the ground for easy access or on the upper levels for all the views.
No matter how you want to spend your vacation, the ultimate island escape awaits at Volcano Bay!
