When you hear about a roller coaster, you think about a wonderland, the rides and most importantly – the fun. If you have ever been on a cruise, it is likely that you have enjoyed a luxury experience. Now, we talk about combining the two of them? It’s an insane idea but it’s true. Carnival Cruise Line, an international cruise line has just announced the details of the first ever roller coaster at sea.
Blew your mind, didn’t it? Let’s find out more about this new-born joy in the cruise world!
The First-Ever Roller Coaster At Sea
The much-anticipated Mardi Gras ship is currently being built in a shipyard in Turku, Finland. The ship is set to launch in 2021 and set sail from the famous Port Canaveral, Florida. Now, what’s special about Mardi Gras is that there is an in-built roller coaster built in the ship itself. Titled as BOLT, this is the first ever roller coaster at sea where you will not just enjoy a luxurious cruise but also a blast in the rides.
Bolt: The Ultimate Fun Roller Coaster
Just talking isn’t going to do anything! What matters are the preview details provided by Carnival Cruise Line. So, here are a few electrifying details about Bolt, the first ever roller coaster at sea and why it is an ultimate fun machine:
- The coaster loop is a simple track with a helix at one end
- What’s special about this is that passengers will be able to control the ride – so how about a sea drive?
- The motorcycle-style speed machine can go upto 40 miles per hour
- The total length of the track is about 800 feet
- The ride itself is installed at about 180 feet above the water line
- Speakers will be installed with sound effects
- Built-in cameras will capture the action in real-time
The ship would also introduce new zones including 6 themed areas full of brand-new experiences for drinking,eating, and having fun. There will be new bars like The Brass Magnolia and Fortune Teller and Emeril’s Bistro 1396 which are all the more reasons to take a cruise with the Mardi Gras in 2021.
So, you can either choose to speed like a racer above the sea level or chill AT your own speed. You are in control as you will be driving yourself. There was never a better way to get 360° views of the ocean. Both, the Mardi Gras cruise ship and BOLT are going to up the bar for cruise travel.
