The new Mardi Gras ship has industry's first roller coaster at sea. The aft-located facility ("BOLT Ultimate Sea Coaster") was built by Maurer Rides - Munich-based German company specializing in roller coaster manufacturing. The race track has length 244 m (800 ft), with twists, turns, drops and speeds up to 64 kph (40 mph). Individual speeds are posted after the race. Carnival's roller coaster is all-electric and allows 2 riders to race along in motorbike-like vehicles at height 57 m (187 ft) above the sea. The experience features breathtaking top-deck 360-degree views and ends with a high-speed turn around ship’s funnel.
