Volcano Express is a ProSlide mat racer water slide[1] located in Wet'n'Wild Hawaii, Kapolei, Hawaii, USA.[2] It was formerly known as the "Island Racer" from 2009 to 2017.


Volcano Express originally opened in May 25, 2002 back when the park was known as Hawaiian Waters.[3] When the park rebranded to Wet'n'Wild Hawaii, the ride received a major makeover, replacing the first two drops with an enclosed helix and drop. It reopened as the Island Racer in June 13, 2009.[4] It was renamed back to Volcano Express at some point in 2017[5].
