Volcano Bay Water Coaster – Krakatau

Undoubtedly, one of the most unique rides in the park would have to be the Volcano Bay Water Coaster. Just having the word “coaster” in the name builds on the hype that this ride will be extremely different from other water slides in the park. In fact, not all water parks even have a water coaster, so this might be a brand new experience for anyone who decides to ride. It might be worth doing the Krakatau Aqua Coaster first as it will set the tone for your entire day.

Starting your journey to riding the amazing Krakatau Aqua Coaster starts as you use your Tapu Tapu wristband to reserve your spot. Once your time has arrived, make your way through the line and watch as your 4-person raft lines up in front of you. Up to 4 guests are allowed in each boat and after you are situated, the fun is ready to begin.

The Ups and Downs of the Krakatau Water Coaster

Dropping down the first hill is a new experience because as you reach the bottom, there is an uphill climb ahead. Hydro-magnetic propulsion latches on your canoe seamlessly and pulls you up the incline all while sprayers of water keep the raft gliding along in the slide. You have made it to the top of the Volcano, and have heard the screams of those who have gone before you. As you enter the chamber, the ride attendant closes the door and your heart is racing. Now, you wait. For what seems like an eternity, it is only a few brief seconds before the trap door drops out beneath you. Your journey begins down this straight, enclosed 125-foot drop along a 70-degree fall. The ride only takes a few seconds before splashing down and once you emerge victoriously, a sense of accomplishment overwhelms you. Now, onto something a little less scary, like the Volcano Bay Lazy River Kopiko Wai where you can relax and take some time to regain your composure.

Family Fun & Excitement on the Volcano Bay Water Coaster
