Carnival to Debut Roller Coaster on New Ship

Carnival Mardi Gras

Carnival Cruise Line will be the first to feature a roller coaster at sea.

The Doral-based company announced that the thrill ride named BOLT will be on their newest ship, "Mardi Gras."

According to the company: "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."

The coaster will race 187-feet above sea level.

It will debut with the ship at Port Canaveral in 2020.
