New cruise ship unveils epic theme park with the longest rollercoaster at sea

Thrill-seekers, get ready for a whole new adrenaline-inducing experience; the world's longest rollercoaster at sea!

New rollercoaster 'Space Cruiser' will be an interactive driving experience where YOU control the speed of the ride.

There will be three carts, each able to hold up to two riders as you zip along the 300m-long track, reaching speeds of up to 37mph.

Oh, and thanks to its location on board a brand new cruise ship, the idea is that you'll feel like you're flying over the sea!

That's because Dream Cruises ' new ship Global Dream, set to debut in 2021, will include the epic rollercoaster as part of a huge new theme park onboard.

Space Cruiser has been designed by Maurer Rides, who have worked on rides at Alton Towers, Drayton Manor and Chessington World of Adventures.

They were also behind the world's first rollercoaster at sea which will be opening on Carnival Cruise Line's ship Mardi Gras next year.

Space Cruiser won't be the only attraction on offer as part of the new cruise ship's theme park.

Other highlights will include;

  • 'Bounce Activity Park', a giant inflatable park the size of a basketball court
  • 'Jump', a trampoline park
  • 'Shark Bay', an adrenaline-inducing bungee trampoline
  • 'Wipe Out', a wave board surf simulator
  • 'Cosmic Chaos' where you can become a human gyro
  • 'Kranky Kraken' for little ones who can fly around in a giant octopus' arms
  • 'Little Dreamers Ride' where tiny tots can put their driving skills to the test in mini karts

Global Dream is currently under construction in Germany, and due to sail early 2021.

If you want to check it all out for yourself, you'll need to head to Asia, as Dream Cruises will be offering sailings on round-trips from the continent (it has yet to confirm the ports for Global Dream).

Still, it promised to be a pretty impressive cruise ship. As well as the theme park, Global Dream will feature a Cineplex, luxurious spas, ample shopping facilities, authentic Asian and international dining experiences and fast food restaurants.

There will be 2,500 cabins which can accommodate up to 5,000 passengers, although Dream Cruises says it expects the ship to cater to 9,000 passengers during peak holiday periods.

Of course in the meantime if you are starting to get the itch to go to a theme park, the good news is that there are plenty of ways to explore the UK's top parks on a budget.
