Five Ways to Use TapuTapu Wearables at Universal’s Volcano Bay

Universal’s Volcano Bay, which opens May 25, 2017, will be unlike any other water park that you have ever visited. Volcano Bay will offer Virtual Lines and TapuTapu wearables to help you enjoy your time in the park even more. There will be a number of incredible benefits for you to enjoy with the TapuTapu wearables, which were made exclusively for Volcano Bay.

The TapuTapu wearable is one of the many things that will make Volcano Bay unlike any other water park in the world. It was designed to enhance fun and remove hassles.

No more standing in long lines to experience an attraction.
No more carrying wallets, cash or credit cards around the park.
No more fumbling for a locker key.

With the TapuTapu on your wrist, you’ll experience an entirely new level of freedom and fun as you enjoy the park with your friends and family. See below for all of the wonders you can unlock with just a simple touch of the wrist:

  • TapTu Pay: Raise your hand if you hate handling wet money and credit cards! Well, you don’t have to worry about that anymore! With TapTu Pay, you can make purchases throughout the entire park with the TapuTapu wearable on your wrist.

  • TapTu Snap/My Universal Photo Access: You’ll be able to take advantage of special interactive photo opportunities and selfie-spots throughout the park (including on select Volcano Bay’s rides). Your wearable will automatically link your photos to your account so you can view, purchase, and share your photos at your convenience.

  • Locker Access: After you rent your locker, you’ll be able to access it with just a touch of your TapuTapu wearable. No more locker keys!

  • Virtual Line: You can virtually wait in line for one ride at a time while playing in other areas of the park. The TapuTapu wearable will alert you when your wait time is over. That and I don’t have to carry rafts or tubes to the top of slides?!? Sign me up!

  • TapTu Play: You can trigger special interactive effects and surprises throughout Volcano Bay, like revealing hidden images in the volcano’s cave and shooting water cannons at unsuspecting guests!

With Universal’s Volcano Bay grand opening right around the corner (May 25), I’m excited to share with you a sneak peek of Volcano Bay from inside the new water theme park.

The attention to detail throughout the park is incredible. You’ll feel as if you’re transported to a tropical getaway.

Hundreds of Tiki faces are hidden amongst the rocks and volcano. Lush landscapes made up of thousands of palm trees and flowers surround you at every turn. The colorful carvings and artwork of the Waturi are present everywhere, taking you through their journey of discovering Volcano Bay.

My favorite part of Volcano Bay was the sense of being able to enjoy the thrills that water can bring, and then turnaround and relax the day away on a sandy beach. I mean, there’s literally a winding river AND an action river.

For all the thrill seekers out there, you can experience 18 slides including the first-of-its-kind aqua coaster, Krakatau Aqua Coaster. Each slide has a personality of its own which gives you a different adventure down each one.

If you’re looking for a more relaxing day with an occasional dip in the pool, grab a pair of padded loungers or a private cabana on Waturi Beach with a great view of the volcano.

One of the fun discoveries I made was all of the “tap-to-play” experiences sprinkled throughout the park. You can trigger special effects throughout the park with just a tap of your TapuTapu wearable, such as shooting water cannons and illuminating images in the volcano’s hidden caves.

The details even flow into the restaurants with colorful rainbow fish hanging over your head as you dine. And you won’t want to miss grabbing a fun souvenir to remember your time at this island oasis.
