Royal Caribbean International has announced that it is to build a huge new waterpark at CocoCay in the Bahamas, the cruise line’s very own private island. Completion is scheduled for late 2019.
The new waterpark will feature the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean, the tallest waterslide in North America and a helium balloon ride.
Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, said: “At Royal Caribbean, it’s not just about the hardware. It’s true that our new ships are technological and engineering marvels in their own right, and offer a multitude of unexpected experiences. Our destinations are an equally important part of the cruise vacation. We are introducing Perfect Day Island Collection to ensure that we deliver the most memorable vacation for adventure seekers on land, as well as on board our ships.”
The new waterpark will feature a total of 13 waterslides, the most found in any waterpark in the Caribbean, as well as the largest wave pool and a family friendly obstacle course pool.
Daredevil’s Tower will push guests to their limits, featuring seven different waterslides, including a twin Dueling Demons drop slides and the 135-foot-tall Daredevil’s Peak, to be the tallest waterslide in North America.
Family Tower will feature six-multi-rider waterslides and a four-lane Splash Speedway racing slides. In addition the will also be a 1,600-foot-long zip line, which will end with a splash!
