Carnival Cruise Line’s Mardi Gras isn’t the only ship that will have a roller coaster on the top deck. A second cruise line has announced plans for what they’re saying will be the longest coaster at sea when it debuts in 2021.
Not only will Dream Cruises’ currently-under-construction Global Dream feature a roller coaster, but the attraction will be part of the first at-sea theme park. Known as Dream Park At The Pier, the new ship’s park will feature a variety of attractions designed to thrill cruisers.
According to Travel Daily News, the Space Coaster topping the first-in-its class Global Dream will feature a nearly 1,000-foot long track. “Outfitted with powerful electric motors and positive-locking drive system, the coaster defies the physical limits experienced by conventional coasters, thus allowing acceleration over 1G almost everywhere on [the track],” said Marco Hartwig, the man in charge of the project for Maurer Rides.
