One of the less intense of Rainforest Village’s slides, Punga Racers has riders on manta-ray mats competing against one another across four lanes. The winner receives a “watery salute” from Punga himself.

Fear factor
3 out of 5. While these can be scary and the slides are tight, your position will control your speed and splashdown.

What you wish you knew before you experienced it
Some of the lanes, like the orange, feature sections that are open instead of enclosed.

OI fun facts
Māori mythology states that a punga is related to sharks, stingrays, and lizards. It is typically depicted as strange and sometimes ugly.

Also, Punga was originally classified as part of the Krakatau area of Volcano Bay before Universal reorganized the map, dissipating that land altogether.
