The first rollercoaster at sea will be launched onboard Carnival Cruise Line’s upcoming XL-class vessel Mardi Gras.
Bolt, which features almost 800 feet of twists, turns and drops, will offer guests “a heart-pounding rush of adrenaline” as they speed along at nearly 40 miles per hour, the line said.
The open-air, electric rollercoaster sees two riders in a motorcycle-like vehicle race along a track 187-feet above sea level around the funnel of the ship, which launches in 2020.
Carnival said the attraction would allow riders to experience “breath-taking 360-degree views”
Guests can choose their own speeds to ride at and will have their photo taken during the experience for a keepsake.
Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said Mardi Gras would be the line’s “most innovative ship ever” with some “truly special features and attractions” highlighted by the creation of Bolt.
Mardi Gras will homeport in Port Canaveral with itinerary information revealed early next month.
A second XL-class ship will start construction in 2020 and be delivered in 2022 to mark the 50th anniversary of Carnival Cruise Line’s founding.
