Global Dream, Dream Cruises’ first Global Class ship, will boast “the world’s longest rollercoaster at sea” when it enters service in early 2021.
The Space Cruiser, which has been created in collaboration with Maurer Rides, will be the centrepiece of the Dream Park at the Pier – “the first-ever theme park at sea” onboard the new Global Class vessel.
“Outfitted with powerful electric motors and positive-locking drive system, the coaster defies the physical limits experienced by conventional rollercoasters, thus allowing acceleration over 1g almost everywhere on the 300m track,” Maurer Rides’ project manager Marco Hartwig said, adding that the ride can reach speeds of up to 60 km/h.
Each of the three Spike carts will provide interactive driving excitement for up to two riders per vehicle with inline seats and an integrated throttle allowing guests to control the speed of the ride. Due to the unusual perspective, the driver of the Space Cruiser will have the feeling of flying over the sea, said the company in a statement.
Besides the Space Cruiser, the Dream Park at the Pier will also feature a myriad of other attractions, including a giant inflatable obstacle course, trampoline park, bungee trampoline, surf simulator, human gyroscope ride and go-kart ride for kids.
Apart from the theme park, other amenities on board Global Dream will include a cineplex, Asian and Western spas, ample shopping facilities as well as Asian and international dining experiences and fast food restaurants.
Her 2,500 cabins will be able to accommodate up to 5,000 passengers on a twin share basis and can cater to over 9,000 passengers during peak holiday periods. Global Dream will also feature Dream Cruises’ signature 151-suite luxury “ship-within-a-ship’ concept, “The Palace”.
