I remember when this concept was introduced it looked like it might be a great addition to small park or maybe even an FEC but I never thought about a cruise ship. Looks like a great fit and should be a lot of fun.

I don't cruise as often as some here but would something like this typically be an up charge? On RCCL is the carousel, and zip line, giant slides are those types of attractions up-charges?

I never thought I'd see a coaster on a cruise ship, but it sure looks like it would give some awesome views.

Correct. None of those on Royal Caribbean are upcharges along with the rock climbing, flow riders, bumper cars, indoor skydiving, etc.

I would assume this will NOT be an upcharge on Carnival. From what I'm seeing on the cruise enthusiast boards, most people are most concerned about how often it will be open (apparently the Carnival cycle monorail has a lot of downtime) and how it looks on the ship (personal preference).

Sorry not everyone has time to disregard real life and study theme parks all day. Your post above is one of the most stupid and ignorant posts I've ever seen. It's really more dumb than the genuine question I had. No wonder most of the theme park community hates you... grow up prick.

But you have plenty of time to go visit theme parks and ride water rides in a tuxedo, right? (Which people saw because of TPR... you're welcome.)

Yes, most of the theme park community "hates us." Uh-huh. Yeah... so is that why we got over10 million views on our YouTube videos last month? 1.6 million engagements on our Facebook & Twitter posts last month? And 21,000 new followers on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter last month? During the "off-season" slower period for our socials no less.

We got all that engagement on social media because "most of the theme park community hates us", right?

You know who hates us? I'll tell you who... A small minority of people whom we've been rude to on purpose on our forums or social media in response to the stupid crap **they posted** and couldn't take personal responsibility for their own dumb comments. THAT is who hates us. And you know what? They can go ahead and hate us. You know why? Because we DON'T CARE and we are better off without people like that making our social media channels and online forums DUMBER for other people to read.



tl;dr - I won't be taking your advice, thanks.



ps. I also like how I wasn't the first or only one to call you out your post, but you chose to single me out in your response. Yeah, that's fair, right? Please. Hate on me more. Let me show you how much I care... :roll:

Getting back to Bolt. Are these considered powered coasters?
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks
