The world’s longest roller coaster at sea will be the centrepiece of the first-ever theme park at sea on Asian luxury cruise line Dream Cruises’ Global Dream.
The theme park named “Dream Park at the Pier” is featured on the line’s first 9,000-passenger Global Class ship, debuting early 2021. The “Space Cruiser” 300 metre roller coaster track is the longest at sea and goes up to speeds of 60km per hour.
The “Space Cruiser” follows right after the world first roller coaster “Bolt” on Carnival Mardi Gras which will debut August 2020. Both roller coasters are made with German roller coaster manufacturer Maurer Rides, but the “Space Cruiser” boasts a track that is almost 25 per cent longer.
It seats two riders per vehicle and the driver rider is also able to control the speed of the carts. The line also says that riders will get to experience the feeling of flying over the sea during the ride
