Carnival Cruises unveils plans for the first roller coaster at sea
May 15, 2019
Carnival Cruises announced at the end of last year that it had plans to build the first roller coaster at sea, and we finally have a glimpse of what it will look like. The roller coaster will be called BOLT, and it will be on board the company's upcoming ship, Mardi Gras in 2020. Passengers will ride "motorcycles" that will let them control the speed at which they want to take each turn; the track will be 800-foot long at over 180 feet above sea level. However, don't expect BOLT to match the same level of excitement as land-based roller coasters since it will go at 40 mph, while the world's fastest roller coasters reach at least 93 mph.
