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.
