Not shocking at all that it was on a Carnival ship.

So I don't know how this went so ignored by all of you crazy coaster people but...

We finally have our first 'Roller Coaster at Sea'! Yup, Carnival Cruise Line has announced they are puting one of those Maurer Dragster Coasters on their new Mardi Gras ship coming out in 2020.

Bolt: Ultimate Sea Coaster
800 Feet Long
Up to 40mph
187 feet ABOVE sea level

The ship will be sailing out of Port Canaveral (the port Orlando uses) so it fits the market!

Look how it wraps around the signature "Whale Tail" of the Carnival Ship!

Here's a look at the coaster itself.

Looks awesome! I'm curious as to how hard it'll be to maintain due to the salt water it'll be surrounded by. Will be interesting to see as time goes on.

Oh FFS :lol: :lmao: :lol: :lmao: :lol:

... It'll probably be just like this and this and this and this and dozens (possibly hundreds) of other coasters over or immediately next to the ocean that exist all over the world and have yet to spontaneously combust.

... okay, the last one was a bad example.

*Cue up the debate on whether it is a credit or not* :lol:

Since it is carnival, how long before a passenger is stuck on it for hours?

Seriously though, this is a good ride system for a cruise ship.

And what is interesting about all those examples is that this coaster will sit FARTHER AWAY from and be even more protected from the water than any of those, and all of those coasters seem to operate... JUST FINE.

Honestly, I just want people to stop making stupid, ignorant posts. Is that really too much to ask?

Yes, I know it is... People are going to just keep getting dumber...

I remember when this concept was introduced it looked like it might be a great addition to small park or maybe even an FEC but I never thought about a cruise ship. Looks like a great fit and should be a lot of fun.

I don't cruise as often as some here but would something like this typically be an up charge? On RCCL is the carousel, and zip line, giant slides are those types of attractions up-charges?

I never thought I'd see a coaster on a cruise ship, but it sure looks like it would give some awesome views.
