Speeds of nearly 40 mph
Built by Munich-based Maurer Rides, BOLT: Ultimate Sea Coaster is a heart-pounding rush of adrenaline with nearly 800 feet of exhilarating twists, turns and drops with riders reaching speeds of nearly 40 mph.
BOLT is an all-electric roller coaster that allows two riders in a motorcycle-like vehicle to race along a track 187 feet above sea level, with breathtaking 360-degree views.
BOLT begins with an action-packed launch where riders can achieve race car-like levels of acceleration and culminates with a high-powered hairpin turn around the funnel. Speeds are posted after the race and, just like land-based roller coasters, participants have their photo taken during the ride for a memorable keepsake. Riders choose their own speed.
