Disney Cruise Line: Ride the AquaDuck

posted on October 30th, 2009 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


Wow, what an evening. As many of you know, yesterday we hosted a media event to unveil details of our newest ship, the Disney Dream. The highlight was the introduction of the first water coaster aboard a cruise ship — the AquaDuck.

While we’ll have to wait until 2011 to actually experience the AquaDuck, here is a chance to go on a “virtual ride”… Enjoy!

Here are some fun facts about the AquaDuck:

  • The AquaDuck stretches 765 feet in length – more than two and a half times the length of a football field – and spans four decks in height.
  • Guests slide 13 feet over the side of the ship in a translucent “swing out” loop allowing them to look down on the ocean 150 feet below.
  • Guests experience coaster-like thrills as high-powered water jets push them upwards and forwards at 20 feet per second.

Wonderful. I especially enjoy that “lazy river”-looking segment that lets you enjoy the view for awhile.

I’m sure plenty of us would like to share this video on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Could you add a ‘share’ button to the videos? And to the blog posts?

Hmm. If I stay in good health, I will be 60 in 2011. I hope they let senior mousketeers on that water slide because I am already planning a cruise on the Disney Dream.

This looks like such a blast! I love that it actually takes you OVER the water, instead of just above the boat. And the “Space Mountain” part! Wow!

Mark, the only limitation I’ve seen is that riders must be at least 48″ tall; nothing about age limits. I’ve got you by a few years, and I fully intend to ride!

I’ll be riding this come January 26th 2011, as I just booked us on the Maiden Voyage of the Disney Dream! WOOT!
