We’ve told you about Universal Volcano Bay’s virtual line experience…we’ve told you about TapTu Play. Now, there are even more incredible benefits for you to enjoy with the TapuTapu wearable – 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:

  • NEW! 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.

  • NEW! TapTu Snap/My Universal Photo Access: You’ll be able to take advantage of special interactive photo opps 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.

  • NEW! 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 Experience: 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 (I mean seriously, who doesn’t enjoy that? )


You can also create a FREE account that will connect all of your information together, whether you’re on your home computer or the Official Universal Orlando Resort App.

NOTE: You do NOT need a free account to take advantage of TapTu Play, virtual line experience, TapTu Snap or Locker Access. But you DO need it to have a digital ticket and to enable TapTu Pay.

Account setup is quick and easy and can be done any time in the Official Universal Orlando Resort App or online here.

TapuTapu is another example of how we’re working to give you more freedom and fun across all of our theme parks. When Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon opened, it featured Universal Studios’ first virtual line experience. And last year, we introduced a new feature in the Official Universal Orlando Resort App that allows you to purchase and redeem your Universal Orlando tickets (which now includes Annual Passes) so you can proceed straight to the park entrance.

    How much will it cost for lockers?

    Also, should we plan on bringing our freestyle cups to Volcano Bay? Will there be machines like the other parks?

    “No more carrying wallets, cash or credit cards around the park.”

    Except for your ID if you want an adult beverage! Because who DOESN’T carry their ID around in a water park?
