Royal Caribbean Unveils Tallest Slide At Sea, The Ultimate Abyss
The Ultimate Abyss has been designed to incite and maintain a sense of heart pumping anticipation. Launching onto the ride from a glass platform, guests can take one last look at the Boardwalk 10 decks below before climbing onto a customized mat and taking the plunge into the depths of the daunting slides. Spontaneous audio effects have been incorporated within each tunnel to create a multi-sensory thrill for daring guests willing to test their mettle while traversing 216 feet through the one of a kind slide duo. The Ultimate Abyss is made up of two separate cylinders, an identical reflection of one another, each with a diameter of approximately 2.6 feet and constructed of stainless steel.
Harmony of the Seas, currently the world’s largest cruise ship, will span 16 guest decks, encompass 227,000 gross registered tons, carry 5,497 guests at double occupancy, and feature 2,747 staterooms. The Oasis class is an architectural marvel touting Royal Caribbean's exclusive seven neighborhood concept, including Central Park, Boardwalk, the Royal Promenade, the Pool and Sports Zone, Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center, Entertainment Place and Youth Zone.
