Carnival Cruise Line Adding First Roller Coaster On a Cruise Ship

Carnival Cruise Line is adding the first roller coaster on a cruise ship that will debut on their largest ship ever, Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras is scheduled to debut in 2020 and will be the cruise line’s first mega ship.

Built by Munich-based Maurer Rides, BOLT: Ultimate Sea Coaster is a heart-pounding rush of adrenaline offering nearly 800 feet of exhilarating twists, turns and drops with riders reaching speeds of nearly 40 miles per hour around the top deck of the cruise ship.

Taking cruise industry innovation to new heights, BOLT is an all-electric roller coaster that allows two riders in a motorcycle-like vehicle to race along a track 187 feet above sea level, enabling guests to experience the sea in an exciting new way with breathtaking 360-degree views.

BOLT begins with an action-packed launch where riders can achieve race car-like levels of acceleration and culminates with a high-powered hair-pin turn around Carnival’s iconic funnel. Riders’ speeds are posted after the race, and just like land-based roller coasters, guests have their photo taken during the ride for a memorable keepsake. And since guests choose their own speed, each ride is unique.

Mardi Gras will be based in Port Canaveral, Florida, which will feature a new state-of-the-art terminal. Itinerary information will be revealed early next month with additional details about Mardi Gras’ groundbreaking features announced throughout the year.
A second XL-class 180,000 gross ton cruise ship will start construction in 2020 and be delivered in 2022 to mark the 50th anniversary of Carnival Cruise Line’s founding.
