Carnival Cruise Line said the upcoming Carnival Horizon will
be the first to have a Dr. Seuss-themed water park and slides.
Located on Deck 12, Dr. Seuss WaterWorks will have two
different slides and a kiddie splash zone with dozens of water spray toys.
The larger of the two slides, The Cat in the Hat slide, will
be a 450-foot-long enclosed raft slide with tubing that alternates between
translucent red and opaque white. The entrance will resemble a giant-sized
version of the cat’s trademark floppy stovepipe hat.
A second slide, the 213-foot Fun Things slide will be an
enclosed body slide with whimsical polka dots and special lighting effects
named after the Thing 1 and Thing 2 creatures from “The Cat in the Hat.”
“We think this is going to be a real fun, new,
different feature,” CCL president Christine Duffy said.
The highlight of the splash area will be a 150-gallon
tipping bucket in the shape of the cat’s hat. On clear partitions surrounding
the park there will sayings from Seuss stories and the entrances will feature
larger than life images of Seuss characters, such as The Grinch with a
surfboard tucked under his arm.
The water park extends the partnership Carnival launched in
2013 with Dr.Seuss Enterprises, which includes parades, a Green Eggs & Ham
breakfast and on some ships, including Horizon, a library/play area called
The 3,934-passenger Horizon, a sister of the Carnival Vista
delivered last year, arrives in April 2018.
