AquaDunkAs we reported in April, Disney Magic is getting some impressive new features while the ship is in drydock in Cadiz, Spain, including the AquaDunk, a three-story body slide that begins with a surprise launch.

Riders step inside a translucent tube and await the near-vertical launch that takes place when the floor beneath them opens like a trap door. The drop sends guests on a swift and splashy ride in a translucent tube that extends 20 feet over the side of the ship.

“We have always been committed to reinvesting in our fleet and continuously making shipboard enhancements that elevate the guest experience,” said Karl L. Holz, president of Disney Cruise Line.

The ‘reimagineering’ of Disney Magic is due to finish October 10, when the ship will sail to Miami for the winter season, before returning to the Mediterranean next spring, with sailings from Venice and Barcelona.

Here’s a video of the AquaDunk experience, and you can read more about the reimagineering of Disney Magic here. To watch a video about cruising the Mediterranean on board Disney Magic, click here.
