Royal Caribbean released a couple photos of the new attractions under construction at the private island of Coco Cay. The small Bahamian island is being totally revamped with the initial phase set to open this coming May.
Here is the foot bridge over the Oasis Lagoon which will be the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean according to Royal Caribbean. (Strictly speaking, Coco Cay is not geographically in the Caribbean, it’s in the Atlantic Ocean.)
The water slides for Splash Summit are also being installed. (the image seems to be the Splash Speedway slides although the press image didn’t specify.)
Splash Summit will include six slides, including:
The Twister: a winding tube slide for two people aboard a raft
The Slingshot: a zero-gravity slide for four
Splash Speedway: four separate racing slides
Although opening in May 2019 with some of the new features, the full Perfect Day At Coco Cay experience will not be completed until December 2019. In the end it will cost $200 million dollars and will boast the Thrill Waterpark, Oasis Lagoon, Up, Up and Away helium balloon (yes, it’ll be tethered), Chill Island beach, and South Beach.
