Just when you thought Harmony of the Seas couldn’t get any better, this month Royal Caribbean have revealed the top secret design for The Ultimate Abyss.
Naturally this is the tallest waterslide on the high seas, as you will know well, only the biggest and best will do for Royal Caribbean. The Ultimate Abyss stretches more than 150 feet above sea level, towering over the aft of the ship and the AquaTheater. The twin slides snake from Deck 16 to Deck 6, you will reach up to nine miles per hour as you plummet down – which is sure to get your blood pumping.
This is not for the faint-hearted, it requires only the bravest and most daring to be up for the challenge, as the whole design of The Ultimate Abyss is to increase the sense of anticipation – we all know that feeling when you’re waiting for the drop on a rollercoaster.
You’ll start your journey on The Ultimate Abyss launching from a glass platform, get a nice look down at the Boardwalk, only 10 decks down. Then you’ll climb onto a customised mat which will be your ride down to the bottom and brace yourself for the drop. Each tunnel provides a multi-sensory thrill, pumping in audio effects for your way down the 216 feet-long slides. So who wants a go?
Launching in May 2016, Harmony of the Seas is set to be Royal Caribbean’s biggest and best ship yet.
Weighing in at a whopping 227,000 gross tonnage and extending 361 meters, it’s going to be mega.
