Although cruise liners are momentarily docked due to the coronavirus pandemic, Carnival Cruise Line is already planning their next trip to sea - with a new edition onboard.

On Sunday, the company posted a video showing its new roller coaster, Bolt, that will be placed onto their Mardi Gras ship.

"Aboard the Mardi Gras, you’ll meet BOLT™: the fastest — and first! — roller coaster at sea, but before that take a look at Cruise Director Matt Mitcham making a special visit to the test track of BOLT™ in Munich, Germany," the company said about the roller coaster. "Once on Mardi Gras, you'll get to strap in and zoom your motorcycle-style speed machine around an open-air course high, high above sea level."

Another cool feature about the roller coaster is that the rider gets to control how fast it goes.

The ship is set to debut in February 2021 from Florida's Port Canaveral, the company said.
