Carnival Cruise Line is adding the first roller coaster on a cruise ship that will debut on their largest ship ever, Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras is scheduled to debut in 2020 and will be the cruise line’s first mega ship.

Built by Munich-based Maurer Rides, BOLT: Ultimate Sea Coaster is a heart-pounding rush of adrenaline offering nearly 800 feet of exhilarating twists, turns and drops with riders reaching speeds of nearly 40 miles per hour around the top deck of the cruise ship.

Taking cruise industry innovation to new heights, BOLT is an all-electric roller coaster that allows two riders in a motorcycle-like vehicle to race along a track 187 feet above sea level, enabling guests to experience the sea in an exciting new way with breathtaking 360-degree views.

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.

You can watch a short preview video of BOLT: Ultimate Sea Coaster below:

TL;DR— It’s a Maurer spike like Sky Dragster & Superbike Race, 800ft long, nearly 40mph fast, and 187ft above sea level. Hype!

Recently, the ride vehicle for Bolt, for shown off at IAAPA:


Also, a while back, the ride layout is installed near Maurer's offices. Probably being tested before being installed on the cruise ship:

I hope it doesn't drop off the side of the ship and submerge riders underwater or travel directly over the smokestacks.
