Two-sentence insider summary
Two riders are simultaneously sent down the Kala and Ta Nui Serpentine Body Slides via a drop door. Their paths then crisscross several times as they plummet down the intertwining tubes.
5 out of 5. This is a longer version of the Ko’okiri Body Plunge, with the green Tai Nui slide often being referred to as the most intense ride in the park.
What you wish you knew before you experienced it
As mentioned above, Tai Nui (green slide) is more intense than Kala (blue slide). Guests slide down a steep drop at the end of Tai Nui, whereas they glide out more slowly on Kala.
Be sure to follow the instructions and keep your head back. Guests will often try to lift their heads, which may cause the forces to bump the backs of their heads onto the slide.
OI fun fact
Kala and Ta Nui Serpentine Body Slides tie into Volcano Bay’s backstory: Ta Nui is the god Krakatau’s daughter, and Kala is her mortal lover. They represent two of the central elements that have fused together to create the island paradise – sea and moon.
