Volcano Bay: Universal's Volcano Bay opened in May 2017 and was the replacement for Wet 'n Wild and is themed around a 200 foot volcano named "Krakatau". The volcano houses three water slides Ko'okiri Body Plunge, the tallest body slide in America ranging at 125 feet tall, and also the first to travel through a pool full of guests. Krakatau also holds the Kala & Tai Nui Serpentine Body Slides which travel throughout the midst of the volcano winding around the Krakatau Aqua Coaster.
The park utilises the TapuTapu experience. TapuTapu is a wristband wearable distributed at the entrance at the park, which can be used to hold one's place in line instead of standing in long queues for attractions. TapuTapu comes with other features including TapTuPay, which links a credit card through the Universal Orlando app to the wearable, allowing users to pay throughout the park for merchandise, food, and drinks (alcoholic drinks require a government issued ID). The wristbands can be used to interact with environmental features, set off water springs, or illuminate lights.
Universal CityWalk: Universal CityWalk is the name shared by the entertainment and retail districts located adjacent to the theme parks of Universal Parks & Resorts. CityWalk began as an expansion of Universal's first park, Universal Studios Hollywood, and serves as an entrance plaza from the parking lots to the theme parks.
