Opening on May 25, Volcano Bay will become Universal Orlando Resort’s third theme park and further complement the ultimate vacation destination. Volcano Bay will feature incredibly immersive environments, exhilarating rides, relaxing escapes and amazing technology that eliminates the fuss and maximizes the fun.

And today, we’re giving you the first ever look at the waterproof TapuTapu wearable for guests to use during their day at Universal’s Volcano Bay. Designed specifically and exclusively for use in Universal’s water theme park, it will transform the way guests experience water theme park entertainment at Volcano Bay.

The TapuTapu wearable gives you the ability to enjoy the new Virtual Line. You’ll walk up to the totem in front of an attraction entrance and with just a simple tap, receive a return time for that attraction. The TapuTapu then allows you to virtually wait in line so you can enjoy other areas of Volcano Bay while you wait. Each one of Volcano Bay’s four imaginatively-themed areas is filled with incredible experiences for all ages – so you don’t have to go far to have fun while you wait.

Soak up the sun on Waturi Beach, watch your friends speed through the Ko’okiri Body Plunge in The Reef leisure pool or brave the racing torrent of TeAwa The Fearless River. When it’s time for you to ride, TapuTapu will alert you to head over to the attraction. No carrying tubes, no standing in long lines, no hassles.

TapuTapu also allows you to explore various TapTu Play experiences throughout the park. You can control streams of water spurting from whales in Tot Tiki Reef or shoot water cannons at other guests snaking down Kopiko Wai Winding River. You can even illuminate images in the volcano’s hidden caves (I can’t wait for this one).


You’ll receive an interactive TapuTapu wearable to use for the day when you arrive to the park at no extra charge.

Select 3-Park tickets and package offers are now available. You can upgrade your vacation package to stay at one of Universal Orlando’s on-site hotels. To enjoy breathtaking views of Volcano Bay, you can book an all-new volcano-side room or two-bedroom suite at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort.
