    looks amazing

  2. So, Master Blaster tech on a cruise ship? Awesome. It looks really fun. Second half looks tame but I guess that’s for a breather and a view. Can’t wait to see the rest of the Disney Dream coverage!

      The second half is definitely all about the view. The video doesn’t do it justice. Looking down on the deck on the right is fun and the panoramic view of the ocean on the left is incredible. The AquaDuck tube kind of “rocks” the raft back and forth a little during that part, so there’s some motion, but the focus is definitely the view. Thrills up front, then slow down for visuals, and end with one last corner and drop.

    Ricky, thank you for this video! It looks amazing! Do you know if there are weight/height restrictions on the Aqua Duck? I can’t find anything online about that except for a minimum height. But would a large man be able to ride? How about a pooh sized woman? Keep up the great work!

    1. Ricky Brigante

      I have only seen a minimum height as well. They do not weigh you and I didn’t see anyone get turned away.

    Oh my gosh, Ricky! Thank you so much for everything you have posted about everything Disney, and here lately, the Dream! Watching your AquaDuck video, had me grinning from ear to ear! Making me even more impatient til it is my turn to ride it! Thank you again for creating and continuing to give us such an awesome podcast and website to be able to come to for such great information and updates on our beloved Disney!

    pictures look great! does the aquaduck only operate when in port? does it operate at night?

    1. Ricky Brigante

      No and yes! We were definitely moving across the ocean when my POV videos were recorded. And I rode it twice at night close to midnight – a whole different experience!

  6. Awesome…I’m going on very soon but I tend to get claustrophobic, did this give a closed in feeling at all?

    1. Ricky Brigante

      Yes, a bit at first, but no more so than any other enclosed water slide. And once you’re out over the water, you have a feeling of freedom like no other slide.

    If they let you, would it be possible to ride the Aqua Duck raft from where it ends back to the start? I’m trying to figure out if I can get my H/C daughter on the ride.

    1. Ricky Brigante

      Unfortunately, that’s not possible. The rafts are pulled up to the top on a vertical conveyor belt of sorts. There is no way to ride it up. I’m not sure if there is any other way to get to the top aside from climbing stairs.

    How do you record yourself on it?
