If you like these swinging ship rides, this one goes higher than any other one, so it would be one of your favorites.

I never thought Id be giving a swinging ship ride a 10, and I also would never have thought that a swinging ship would be my second favorite attraction at a theme park (it beat everything else here except for the Comet). So what made it so special? For starters, there was no one in line, so the ride operator let us ride over and over without getting off. Now, normally this is not something Id feel the need to do. It was a different story here though. Sitting in the back seat of this pirate ship, I felt more height, angle, and airtime than on any other pirate ship that Ive ever ridden. And I really want to stress the airtime. The lap bar doesnt come anywhere near your body, and each time you crest the top you completely float out of your seat. It was absolutely unparalleled, so much so that a couple times I had to consciously tell myself to be careful or else I could totally come out of the thing. An absolute blast, and I rode again and again.

ok this is the highest swinging ship ive been on in my entire LIFE. i had my hands up in the back not expecting to almost go over the top, and almost flipped over the friggin lap bar. its not even a lap bar its like 6 inches away from your lap. my leg also fell out at the top. the should get otsr for this one...its too high to have such little protection.

This ride used to scare the crap out of me! That little bar is all thats meant to hold you in! I really like this ride and its not in a bad location either. I just wish they would add the long lost "pirate" letters back to it.

Many better ships are out there than this, so this one doesnt get me too excited. Still, better than the one at Hershey.

Nice placement by the pirate themed water park...nice water effects in front of the boat.

This is a nice pirate ship good look to the boat. ride is good,well above average. though the go cart track in front of it makes it look out of place.
