World's Craziest Waterslides: AquaDuck, Disney Dream

Kent Phillips

AquaDuck

Where: Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy cruise ships

Meet “the Duck”—the cruise industry’s first-ever shipboard water coaster. The 765-foot-long, four-deck-high AquaDuck debuted on Disney Dream in 2011 and has since been added to Disney Fantasy. Atop the aft deck, passengers hop on a two-person inflatable raft that is then propelled forward by high-powered water jets. Expect to be dropped, looped around, and accelerated.

Crazy Fact: Following the initial drop, riders are thrust through a clear acrylic “swing out” flume that extends 12 feet over the side of the ship—and 150 feet above the ocean’s surface.
