A closer look at Volcano Bay's 4 primary areas

Updated:

ORLANDO, Fla. - Guests will have the opportunity to explore four imaginatively-themed areas at Volcano Bay, filled with experiences ranging from daring to serene.

1.       Krakatau:

The 200-foot volcano, Krakatau, will lie at the heart of the park, inviting guests to venture through its hidden caverns and cascading waterfalls.

o    A state-of-the-art marquee attraction found only at Volcano Bay. More details will be announced later.

o    Three distinctive body slides found at the rear of the volcano, which start off with surprise doors that drop out from beneath guests:

  • Ko’okiri Body Plunge: A racing, 70-degree drop that will plummet 125-feet through the center of Krakatau. It will be the world’s first slide to travel through a pool filled with guests.
  • Kala and Ta Nui Serpentine Body Slides: Two intertwining slides where guests will fall freely along 124 twisting feet.

o    Punga Racers: A high-speed race through four different enclosed slides featuring manta-shaped mats.

2.       Wave Village:

Located at the base of Krakatau, Wave Village will be home to:

o    Waturi Beach: A sparkling, multi-directional wave pool where guests can swim, relax on the sand or indulge in private, one- or two-story cabanas.

o    The Reef: An adjacent leisure pool will provide guests with calmer waters and exciting views of riders speeding through the Ko’okiri Body Plunge.

3.       River Village:

Named for the peaceful river that snakes through it, River Village will feature unique attractions for the entire family, including:

o    Kopiko Wai Winding River: A gentle, winding river that will pass through the volcano’s hidden caves, featuring spontaneous water effects and special nighttime lighting.

o    Ika Moana: A twisting, multi-passenger raft ride that will glide across bubbling geysers.

4.       Rainforest Village:

Exhilarating thrills await guests in Rainforest Village, including:

o    Maku: North America’s first “saucer ride” – sending multi-passenger rafts speeding around three saucer-shaped curves.

o    Puihi: A breath-taking multi-passenger raft ride that will plunge guests into darkness before bursting into a funnel and launching into a zero-gravity drop.

o    Ohyah and Ohno Drop Slides: Two twisting, adrenaline-pumping slides that launch guests four- and six-feet above the water at the end.
