Carnival New Construction Plans Leaked – 44-Loop Roller Coaster!
It’s a race to come up with the newest, most exciting on-board attractions. Recently, Royal Caribbean launched their Quantum class, boasting Skydiving, Robot Bartenders, Bumper Cars and more as part of their “WOW Campaign.” Evidently, Carnival Cruise Lines is not to be outdone. Today plans were leaked showing plans for the next big thing – a 44-loop Cruise Ship Roller Coaster! Appropriately, the ship is to be named the “Carnival Behemoth.”
According to sources, Carnival is attempting to one-up Royal Caribbean’s WOW marketing efforts with their own campaign, called “OMG.” From a confidential source at Carnival:
“Our goal is to have passengers’ jaws drop upon boarding. For the first half-hour, the only words out of their mouths should be ‘Oh, my goodness.’ They’ll find so many outrageous attractions and activities, that they’ll totally forget they’re on a cruise ship. We’re still analyzing whether we’ll even need to stop at ports.”
The most significant “OMG” factor is the new 44-Loop Roller Coaster, called the “Sea-Snake.” Passengers won’t be able to miss this new addition while on board – the ride weaves in and out of almost every outdoor area on the ship. “While relaxing poolside, passengers can be entertained by the roller coaster cars whooshing just above their heads every 85 seconds,” our source said.
According to our rep, the cruise line had a difficult decision to make when choosing the one main attraction that won out the “OMG Factor” campaign. Other than the cruise ship roller coaster, the line was considering the following.
- Trampoline Laser Tag Venue
- African Safari at Sea
- Hunger Games Arena
- Zero Gravity Space Adventure
When asked whether he thinks that cruise passengers might find this “over-the-top,” our source replied: “Yes, they’ll find it over the top – over the entire top of the cruise ship. And they’ll be like, ‘oh. my. goodness.”
What do you think? Are you excited about the Sea Snake or do you think Carnival should have gone with one of the other options?
POST UPDATE – April 2, 2015: Ha! gotcha, ship mates! There are no plans to build the Sea Snake (at least, not that I’m aware of). I hope none of you chewed out your Carnival reps. I was surprised to see some people actually dug the idea. Welp, anyway – APRIL FOOLS!!!
