   May 18, 2020 ,   Cruise Industry

Dream Cruises started testing on land the revolutionary "Space Cruiser Coaster" - to become the longest roller coaster at sea. The Germany-based amusement ride manufacturing company Maurer AG is currently building the Space Cruiser after the trademarked Spike Coaster. The record-breaking coaster is to be installed on the new ship of Dream Cruises - Global Dream, scheduled to debut in December 2020.

The Space Cruiser is expected to be the highlight of the "Dream Park at the Pier" - the first theme park at sea. The coaster is being pre-assembled on land for testing, so it can be ready for the vessel’s launch. The tests are being conducted at MV Werften shipyards in Germany. It boasts a racing track of 994 ft (303 m) and can shoot 3 vehicles out at max-speed 37 mph (60 kph). When finished, the coaster will stand at 180 ft (55 m) above sea level.

So far, the coaster’s 3 vehicles are being put into operation step-by-step. The system control is being thoroughly tested. Once completed, the Space Cruiser is to be dismantled and transported to a shipyard in Gustrow, Germany for final assembly.
