Carnival Cruise Line revealed new details of the first roller coaster at sea, dubbed BOLT, which is set to debut on the Mardi Gras in August 2020.

Carnival revealed during the annual International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Conference in Orlando that BOLT’s all-electric, motorcycle-inspired vehicles would feature metallic red and blue stripes and a yellow lightning bolt.

As the centerpiece of the Ultimate Playground, an expansive open-air recreation area on Mardi Gras, BOLT’s vehicles will also feature a digital speedometer display and speakers with new sound effects.

Riders will be able to enjoy 360-degree views on the 800-foot-long track and race 187 feet above the sea with drops, dips and hairpin turns achieving speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. If that’s too fast, guests will be able to choose their own speed.
