This New Cruise Ship Will Have A Roller Coaster On Board

This New Cruise Ship Will Have A Roller Coaster On Board

A new cruise ship set to launch in February 2021 will feature the world's first ever roller coaster at sea.

The Mardi Gras ship from Carnival Cruise Line comes equipped with an area called the Ultimate Playground - which features the unique roller coaster BOLT.

What makes the roller coaster even more unusual, other than it being sat on the deck of a cruise ship, is the fact that riders can choose their own speed - so whether you're a thrill-seeker or just fancy taking in some incredible views, you're covered.

The ride's 800ft-long track will offer riders the chance to travel up to 40mph while sat 187ft above the sea.

BOLT features 'drops, dips and hairpin turns' and gives 360-degree views right across the ocean. Sounds good, eh?

Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy said: "Whether guests want to get an adrenaline rush or take it slow and enjoy the breathtaking views, BOLT will have it all.

"Combining the most talented designers, technicians and attractions professionals in the industry, we've taken FUN to a whole new level with this amazing onboard experience that is also a true game changer in our industry."

On its site, Carnival Cruise Line says: "Strap in and zoom your motorcycle-style speed machine around an open-air course high, high above sea level. You know how on most roller coasters... actually, never mind.

Elsewhere in the Ultimate Playground there's a full-size basketball course, an eight-hole mini golf course, a rope course and a track for exercising on.
