Universal’s Volcano Bay water park is unlike any other I’ve ever been to and I can’t wait to visit again! From the diverse food options to the hassle-free and fun rides, Volcano Bay has made my list of destinations to visit again as soon as possible!
Zack and I visited Universal’s three parks back in October. You may remember my Why You Should Rock a Fanny Pack at Disney and Universal Parks post! Well, we’re going back to Orlando next month. We plan on spending one day at Universal and the rest at Disney World. I guess you could say, October was for Universal and now March is for Disney. If you follow along, you’ll know that our past trip was my first time to the parks. I cannot wait to go back and explore everything again!
Universal Orlando has three parks: Universal Studios, Island of Adventure, and Volcano Bay. During our past visit we spent one full day at Volcano Bay and a couple half-days at the water park.
Three Reasons Why I Love Volcano Bay
1. As a foodie with allergies, I appreciate how caring and accommodating the chefs/managers are. Not to mention, there are plenty of delicious and diverse dining options
2. The TapuTapu wearable is truly revolutionary
3. This water park is hassle-free, fun, and unlike any other I’ve been to
To expand on each point, I’ll start from the top. To be as blunt as possible, traveling and eating out can cause such a headache. That’s not the case at Universal. With the mention of food allergies, you can talk to a chef/manager about the menu and find something delicious that works for you!
I find the TapuTapu wearable so revolutionary because I’ve never even heard of a theme park or water park utilizing something like this! In short, you choose a ride, check-in the line using your TapuTapu, and go on having fun. Zack and I would usually check-in to a ride then go around on one of the two lazy rivers. Your TapuTapu will notify you when to go to the ride and get in the reasonable ride queue. Some rides don’t require a virtual check-in, and I found even the wait time in those lines were extremely tolerable.
At Volcano Bay, don’t expect to tote around a huge floatie or raft. You’re able to roam around hands-free and comfortably. You can decide if you want to spend your day lounging in the sand, swimming in the wave pool, or wandering from ride to ride. Another perk we experienced was that since we were staying at Cabana Bay, we simply just crossed the parking lot and we were at the Volcano Bay entrance.
My personal favorite rides were the Krakatau Aqua Coaster and the group tube rides. I also favor lazy rivers and wave pools, so I was able to get the best of both worlds at Universal’s Volcano Bay. Have you been? What are your favorite attractions?
