Carnival Cruise Line’s soon-to-launch onboard roller coaster will feature cameras along the track and inside the motorcycle-inspired electric vehicles to capture passengers as they take the 40mph ride.
Bolt, which the US-based line claims is the first roller coaster at sea, is the centrepiece of the open-air recreation area on incoming LNG-powered ship Mardi Gras, due in August 2020.
Each vehicle will also have a digital speedometer display and speakers that produce sound effects on the ride along the 800-foot track.
Although the ride has a top speed of 40 mph, passengers can choose how fast they go.
Cameras will capture passengers on the ride as they take in 360-degree views and race 187-feet above the sea with drops, dips and hairpin turns.
Bolt will be located in one of 5,200-passenger Mardi Gras’ six themed zones called the Ultimate Playground on decks 18 to 20.
Speaking at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Conference in Orlando, Carnival Cruise Line president Christine Duffy said: “Whether guests want to get an adrenaline rush or take it slow and enjoy the breathtaking views, Bolt will have it all.
“Combining the most talented designers, technicians and attractions professionals in the industry, we’ve taken fun to a whole new level with this amazing onboard experience.”
