Last week we announced that the Disney Magic, Disney Cruise Lines’s first ship, is being re-imagined with brand-new experiences! As we get more details about these exciting enhancements, I look forward to sharing them with you.

Today, let’s start at the top – the highest point on the ship to be exact! The launch point for the Disney Magic’s new thrill slide, AquaDunk, is in a spot no guest has ever been… at the very top of the ship’s funnel. Not only does this water slide drop 40 vertical feet, it sends riders almost 20 feet out over the side of the ship in a translucent tube with a breathtaking view of the ocean below.

One of the masterminds behind the crazy drop, twists and turns, Imagineer Peter Ricci, has even more details to share about what guests can expect from this adrenaline pumping ride. Check out this video…

Three, two, one…How loud will you scream when the floor drops out from beneath you?
