Bucket List

So I've come out of retirement. Just for a bit. Not sure how long this is going to last, but I had to share the two places I want to add to my bucket list. Since I don't have anything on it yet, I will list these as #1 & #2, however, that is not necessarily the order of importance in which they stand in my life.


Yes, that is a waterslide, and yes that is a pool filled with sharks!
The Leap of Faith @ Atlantis: The Palm in Dubai
27.5m tall and 61m long, from the top of the Ziggurat the Leap of Faith catapults riders into a transparent tunnel and through a shark-filled lagoon, where guitar sharks, bow mouth sharks, white tip, black tip and grey reef sharks all reside.

#2) AquaDuck on Disney Cruise Lines
AquaDuck is a thrilling "water coaster," whose entrance is on Deck 12, Aft aboard the Disney Dream. In a cruise industry first, Guests are propelled at high speeds from Deck 12, Aft through an acrylic tube on a breathtaking journey up, down, around and off the side of the ship, through the Forward Funnel and—following a mammoth drop—into a lazy river.
Developed by Disney Imagineers, this elevated water coaster—the first of its kind at sea—travels 765 feet and features exciting twists, turns and plunges. It was designed for adults and children at least 42" or taller. Single riders must be at least 54" or taller. Children under 7 may ride with someone 14 years of age or older, provided the child is at least 42" tall.
AquaDuck affords breathtaking views of the ocean and ship below—that is, if you're brave enough to keep your eyes open during this exciting ride! It also offers a bird's-eye view of the exciting new pools available to family, kids and adults on the Disney Dream.

ok, tata for now.
