Disney Cruise Ship's 765ft Water-Coaster Looks Incredible
Disney has shared a virtual tour of its famous water-coaster, found on board two of its flagship cruise liners.
If coronavirus is preventing you from heading off on your holidays, you can now take a look at the incredible Aquaduck water-coaster from the comfort of your home.
A world first, the ride is essentially a magical cross between a water slide and a roller-coaster, and, at 765 feet in length, it runs "up, down and around the sides" of the cruise ship at lightening speed.
Check out the video below:
Those who dare to brave the slide are then sent flying through the Forward Funnel, with approximately 10,000 gallons of water per minute whizzing them around, before a whopping four deck drop at the end.
The Aquaduck has developed quite a name for itself as the first time a water-coaster to ever have been placed inside a cruise ship.

If you want a go on the Aquaduck IRL, you might have to wait a little while.
Aligning with the Cruise Lines International Association's (CLIA) decision to pause of all passenger operations due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Disney Cruise Line announced on Thursday that it has cancelled all October trips and select voyages in November, too.
Effective immediately, it also promised to extend its Cruise Date Flexibility Offer to the end of October, meaning guests with a new or existing reservation made before or on October 31st, 2020 could change their sale date for up to 15 days prior with no fee, so long as their cruise occurs before May 31st, 2021.
In a bid to help travellers have a stress free experience, Disney also revealed it would extend all future cruise credits up until May 31, 2022, so that nobody had to rush to go away if they didn't feel comfortable.
Those who have had their sailings canceled by Disney are being offered either a full refund or future cruise credit equal to 25 percent, 125 percent or 150 percent of their trip.
For now, let's just all watch the Aquaduck video and imagine ourselves on it one day, shall we?!
