Last week we did a live chat with a focus on the entertainment and activities offerings on Oasis of the Seas. Labadee came up in the discussion but I neglected to mention the newest attraction there which debuted this past week for the guests on Liberty of the Seas – Dragon’s Tail Coaster. This is an attraction that exists at some ski resorts but certainly not at any other cruise line’s private destination. I tried the one at Park City, Utah, this past winter so I would know what we were going to offer. I can’t wait to try it at Labadee.
What does it entail (no pun intended)? Enjoy the breathtaking beauty of Labadee as you slowly rise up from the beach on Santa Maria’s lookout mountain. Once you reach 680 feet, you’ll have just enough time to catch your breath and marvel at the view before turning and whooshing down at 30 miles per hour. As you race through 360-degree turns as well as dips, waves and curves, you can catch glimpses of the ocean. Roaring down the gorgeous mountainside forest, this alpine coaster is one thrilling ride you and your family will be talking about long after you get home.
