A Fantasy AquaDuck

This isn't an aqueduct, it's the AquaDuck.  Riders sit on rafts and zoom through AquaDuck's tube system that wraps around both sides of the Fantasy, Disney's newest cruise ship. Passengers on deck can watching rafts go by high overhead.

Climb to the Top

In the darkest portion of the ride, a Space Mountain-style star field of sorts illuminates the tube in a variety of passing colors.
