HONG KONG - Dream Cruises will launch the world’s longest roller coaster at sea on board its new Global Class ship, Global Dream,  which is currently under construction in Germany and slated to debut in early 2021.

The “Space Cruiser” will be the highlight of the “Dream Park at the Pier” – a first-ever theme park concept at sea.

Michael Goh, president of Dream Cruises and head of international sales, Genting Cruise Line, said the newly constructed Global Class ships would “dazzle guests” with cutting edge features and facilities.

Dream Cruises has teamed up with Maurer Rides to develop the world's longest roller coaster on a cruise ship.

“Outfitted with powerful electric motors and positive-locking drive system, the coaster defies the physical limits experienced by conventional roller coasters,” said Marco Hartwig, project manager, Maurer Rides.

“All this guarantees a spectacular and breathtaking ride at up to 60 km/h over the heads of fellow passengers.”

The ground-breaking “Dream Park at the Pier on the new Global Class ship will offer attractions including trampolines, an inflatable obstacle course, surf rider, a flying octopus ride and mini-karts for toddlers.

Global Dream is designed for the rapidly growing Asian cruise market and will allow  Dream Cruises to offer cruise itineraries across the world as “Asia’s Global Cruise Line”.

Apart from the theme park, amenities will include a Cineplex, Asian and Western spas, ample shopping facilities as well as Asian and international dining experiences and fast food restaurants.

Her 2,500 cabins will be able to accommodate up to 5,000 passengers on a twin share basis and can cater to more than 9,000 passengers during peak holiday periods.
