    Carnival Cruise Line has announced plans to launch the first cruise ship with a roller coaster on board.

    Carnival announced Thursday that BOLT will circle the top of a new ship, Mardi Gras, when it sets sail in 2020.

    The all-electric coaster will allow two riders at a time to race along nearly 800 feet of track, 187 feet above sea level. The coaster will travel nearly 40 mph and take riders on a series of twists, turns and drops, right around the ship's famous, whale-tail funnel.

    BOLT is being built by Munich-based Maurer Rides.
