Thinking about whether you want to take an ocean voyage or a romp in an amusement park next summer? Turns out, you won’t have to choose.
Carnival Cruise Line shared a video of its much-anticipated Mardi Gras ship on Sunday, which features the world’s first roller coaster at sea, according to USA Today. The new coaster, BOLT, has been under construction in Munich, Germany, and is planned to debut with the Mardi Gras in February 2021. Sadly, all U.S. cruise ships are currently out of operation due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Cruise director Matt Mitcham takes you on a tour of the BOLT in the video, showing all the ins and outs of the new, onboard ride. The track is a simple loop with a helix at one end, but it is especially unique because passengers can actually control the ride themselves.
