Cruise Ship's Cutting-Edge 'Robotron' Ride Looks Downright Terrifying

Riding this at sea would be quite the experience.

For awhile, it seemed like all cruises were basically the same — they were about eating yummy food, sitting by the pool with an umbrella drink in your hand, and checking out a gorgeous beach or two. Now, it seems like cruise ships are more innovated than ever. With all of the activities offered, it would be impossible to be bored while at sea!

But some cruises are coming up with offerings that we've never even seen before, and the one featured in this TikTok video from MSC Cruises definitely falls into that category. There's an actual ride on this ship, and if you're a thrill seeker, you'll definitely want to check this out. 

The ride is called the Robotron, and the experience that the rider has is totally up to them. It looks like a giant robotic arm with a row of rollercoaster-type seats on one end, and it simulates a coaster that is customizable depending on what type of experience you're after. As a bonus, those who are riding also get an amazing view of the ocean, and can opt for an even more thrilling experience in the dark if they wait to ride it at night. 

The new thrill ride debuted earlier this week on the MSC Seascape, the cruise line's newest ship. According to Attractions magazine, riders can also choose the music they want to listen to while riding from different mixes of popular songs, along with which lighting pattern they want to experience. 

Judging by the comments on the video, it looks like a lot of people are excited to try this out, and we can definitely see why.

Cruises are constantly changing, and we can't wait to see what's next.
