You’re here in Orlando. It’s summer. And you’re thinking, “If I’m outside, it’d better be in the water.”

Well, you’re in luck since there is a water theme park with a whole lotta water. It’s called Volcano Bay. That’s ‘cause there’s a giant volcano in the middle of it, except instead of lava, there’s a bunch of water slides, including one that’ll send you screaming down 125 feet.

They’ve got more than just slides. There’s also a winding river, wave pool and a beach where you can chill in the shadow of the volcano.
