The SkyRide, an aerial adventure bike invented by Rollerblade creator and Minnesotanative Scott Olson of SkyRide Technology, arrives November 3 in New York City aboard Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship Carnival Vista. SkyRide, an open-air, pedal-powered ride suspended 40 feet above Carnival Vista’s deck 14 and swooping out 150 feet above the ocean, thrills guests with the exhilarating airborne experience, unparalleled views, and sky flying exercise.
SkyRide Technology will be on hand when Carnival Cruise Lines welcomes the Carnival Vista to New York with events including the November 4 Carrie Underwood concert honoring military families. “We are delighted to welcome the Carnival Vista to the U.S.,” shares Olson. “SkyRide Technology will be part of the fanfare, which is just icing on the cake of our ride’s stunning popularity with Carnival Vista guests through their 100,000 and counting rides since the ship’s maiden voyage in May.”
Olson is passionate about fitness and encouraging people to get outside and get moving. “The Rollerblade and Rowbike got millions people outdoors and exercising in new ways and now SkyRide does, too. SkyRide has the fun factor of Rollerblade and then takes the adventure to new heights,” states Olson, also inventor of the company’s alpine gravity ride SkyChaser and aerial rower SkyRower. “The advantage of the SkyRide and our other sky machines is that they enable people of all abilities to enjoy fitness and reap the physical and mental benefits,” notes Olson.
