In addition to the previously announced waterslides heading to Royal Caribbean International‘s upcoming Harmony of the Seas, the largest cruise ship in the world will also feature a new kids water park. Splashaway Bay will be an interactive aquatic play zone for children, The Ultimate Abyss will be an as-yet-to-be-rendered 100-foot plunge slide, the tallest at sea, and The Perfect Storm will be the aforementioned trio of slides.
Harmony of the Seas, which launches in May 2016, will be a new generation of Oasis-class ships featuring technologies from the Quantum-class ships, and Splashaway Bay is all part of that. According to Royal Caribbean, the aqua park will include, “sea creature water cannons, winding slides, a gigantic drench bucket and a multi-platform jungle-gym to keep everyone entertained for hours.”
Although not yet pictured, The Ultimate Abyss will be a thrilling 10 deck water slide that starts at the Pool and Sports Zone high above the ship’s stern and splashes down at the Boardwalk neighborhood far below. The Perfect Storm will be made up of the Cyclone and Typhoon racer and Supercell champagne bowl slides snaking five decks above Central Park.
