AquaDuck (on Disney Dream only)

Stretching 765 feet in length and spanning four decks in height, AquaDuck combines the thrill of a coaster with the splashing fun of a water slide as powerful water blasters propel guests around the perimeter of the ship’s top deck. From high atop the aft funnel, on Deck 16, guests begin their voyage by boarding a specially designed two-person inflatable raft.

AquaDuck quickly takes an exciting turn. Starting with an initial drop, guests are suspended in a “swing out” loop that extends 13 feet over the side of the ship. Surrounded only by the crystal clear acrylic flume, guests get a breathtaking, unobstructed view of the ocean surface 150 feet below.

The excitement amplifies as riders experience the up-and-down sensations of a coaster and defy gravity in a torrent of gushing water. After an initial plunge, high-powered water jets accelerate guests upwards and forwards at a surging speed of about 20 feet per second, made possible by utilizing some of today's latest water coaster technology.

The ride continues as guests are whisked into an enclosed tunnel. Specialized lighting surrounding the flume provides a magical effect as riders travel through the forward funnel where kids in the tween club can catch a shadowy glimpse of guests through special windows as they whiz by.

Emerging from the funnel, guests swiftly glide along a stretch of river rapids 335 feet in length, providing a stunning panorama of the ocean and the ship’s upper decks. Then comes a whooshing splashdown on Deck 12.

When the sun sets, AquaDuck immerses guests in a unique nighttime experience combining the thrills of this one-of-a-kind water coaster with customized lighting and amazing views of the nighttime sky.
