You can now experience the newest addition to the Universal theme park family, Universal’s Volcano Bay.



Starting today, you can enjoy an immersive water theme park full of thrills and relaxation. One-of-a-kind attractions. And a TapuTapu wearable device that will let you fill your day with fun—instead of standing in long lines.

Media and guests lined the sandy shore of Waturi Beach today to witness the opening of our third theme park. A live webcast on our blog and social media channels captured the excitement and anticipation. And performers from as far as New Zealand shared their culture and their hearts with traditional dances and songs that astounded us all.

Universal's Volcano Bay opened on May 25, 2017 with an authentic dedication ceremony.

The Waturi people welcomed guests and Team Members alike to the island paradise. A powerful performance of chanting by a kapa haka celebrated the island and the guests who will enjoy it. With the passing of a peace offering by the Chief of the Waturi and the eruption of the mighty volcano, Krakatau, Volcano Bay officially opened.

Universal's Volcano Bay is now open at Universal Orlando Resort.

For me, personally, this is the culmination of years of dreaming, planning and building alongside an incredible team of people. It’s amazing to see it finally come fully to life—and I can’t wait for you to experience it. It was an emotional morning for me and I couldn’t be more proud to see the front gates officially opened.

There’s lots of to discover about Volcano Bay on the blog, so take a look. And if you haven’t made plans already, I welcome you to come down and enjoy Universal’s Volcano Bay for yourself soon.
