Carnival Celebration cruise ship to feature onboard rollercoaster

Bolt is an electric two-person coaster that travels up to 40 miles per hour

Carnival Cruise Line's Carnival Celebration ship will feature the line’s second roller coaster at sea.

Bolt: Ultimate Sea Coaster accommodates two passengers at a time and travels at speeds of up to 40 miles an hour.

Commenting on the news, Carnival Cruise Line president Christine Duffy said: “The recognition this incredible attraction has received since its debut on our flagship last year highlights the tremendous work that went into making it a reality, but the most important thing about Bolt is, simply, it’s fun. 

"It embodies the great lengths we’ll go to for our guests to have a good time, and I’m eager to see this next coaster in service when Carnival Celebration begins sailing.”

The Line’s technicians have operated shoreside tests on the new Bolt, which was assembled at Maurer Rides in Germany for initial testing before being reassembled atop Carnival Celebration in Finland over the past few weeks.

Maurer Rides project manager Marco Hartwig added: “At Maurer, we build and deliver excitement and we will deliver just that when Bolt debuts on Carnival Celebration. We can’t wait to present this breathtaking ride to Carnival’s guests.”


Setting off on its inaugural cruise on 21 November 2022, the Carnival Celebration will offer year-round, seven-day Caribbean sailings from the redesigned Terminal F at PortMiami.
