Video of Disney Dream’s AquaDuck water coaster in action

One of the most talked about features of Disney Cruise Line’s new Disney Dream cruise ship is the on-board AquaDuck water coaster. Not to be confused with water roller coasters, like the Dive to Atlantis rides at the SeaWorld parks, water coasters aren’t actually roller coasters. According to Wikipedia, they’re water slides that mimic roller coasters by providing not only descents, but ascents as well. They propel riders uphill via water jets, conveyor belts, and other propulsion devices.

AquaDuck has been previewed with construction updates and written about for quite some time. Now that Disney Dream has launched, Inside the Magic has posted this great first-person POV video of the AquaDuck in action.

I’ve never been on a cruise and don’t consider myself a Disney fan, but the AquaDuck is definitely an eye-catching new attraction. AquaDuck looks like it offers some amazing views and a pretty thrilling ride for a water slide.
