Launching with the new ship Mardi Gras in 2020 out of Port Canaveral, Maurer Rides’ Bolt: Ultimate Sea Coaster will send passengers flying above the ship’s top deck for high-speed views of the ocean. Bolt will run on 800 feet of track at a maximum height of 187 feet above the sea level and a top speed of “nearly 40 mph.”

The all-electric coaster will allow two riders at a time and take them on a series of twists, turns and drops, right around the ship’s famous, whale-tail funnel.

“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,” the cruise line said in a press release.
