This week's First Drop takes a look at the new "roller coaster" that will be built on a Carnival Cruise Ship. "The Bolt" will run on 800 feet of track at a maximum height of 187 feet above the sea level and a top speed of 40 mph. We'll talk about what type of reception this is likely to get from coaster fans and if this ride even deserves to be called a "coaster."

During our Quick Hits segment, the guys talk about several of this week's most interesting stories in the amusement industry, including:

  • Walt Disney World Just Purchased Nearly 1,000 Acres For $23 Million, but the reason is interesting
  • Disneyland Paris has announced that two attractions at the Walt Disney Studios Paris park will soon close forever
  • The final track piece for Copperhead Strike was installed last friday afternoon. Is that a record?
  • The Potter Coaster train is on the tracks!

After that, it's time to name the nominees for the Best New Attraction of 2018!

With the help of our listeners, we'll take a look at all of the big new additions from the past year and figure out which one of them is most deserving to be named the best of the best!
