The Ultimate Abyss will be two slides where guests will have to cross a glass platform to get to. A mat will take those daring passengers down one of the Abyss slides with lots of twists and turns. The slide will go all the way down to the boardwalk neighbourhood and overlook the ship’s AquaTheater on the way. The Abyss is going to be the tallest and most daring slide at sea, if you don’t believe us then take a look at this new video released by Royal Caribbean:

Details of the 10-Story high Abyss have been kept secret for months but there was much speculation that the slide would be 10-stories tall and located at the ship’s aft. Cruise Hive previously reported on a leaked early rendering of the slide in August.

Harmony of the Seas is currently under construction at the STX shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France. Once completed the large ship will be 227,000 gross tons which will be slightly larger than sister ship Allure of the Seas. Harmony of the Seas will carry 5,479 guests at double occupancy and will make its debut in April 2016.
