On the contrary, studying theme parks all day is actually my job!

Agreed with Robb. I feel like they're "kind of" different because you can control your speed, and in terms of layout, they're definitely on the more extreme end of the powered coaster spectrum. For what it's worth, we don't have Sky Dragster (the one at Skyline Park) on our poll and we don't intend on putting Bolt or the Ducati coasters on the poll either.

I saw this story and the coaster looks cool. But while searching for more information I discovered this will be the second roller coaster on a cruise ship. A Chinese ship under construction for launch in 2020 will be first:

I think I'll skip this ship though. 9500 passengers!

To me, this ride is more like a monorail version of a Bobkart than a coaster.

Looks cool. Too bad I’ll never step foot on a Carnival ship. Here’s hoping a version makes its way to Disney, or even just one of the newer Royal Caribbean ships.

They both will launch in 2020 and they both seem to be the exact same ride based on the renderings....

So I'm not really sure which one will be "first" nor do I think it even matters.

It's not going to get me to sign up for a cruise but I love it! Hopefully this just encourages cruises to offer more 'thrills' while the ship is out sailing around. Everyone wins!

No I don't think it matters either. But it was a surprise to find out there was another coaster.

Also I love that the Chinese ship is clearly a clone (smaller) of the Oasis class.
