I was playing around with some old photos and ran across some of the old Pirate Ride. I decided to edit several together and create one big panorama of the mural that used to be in the loading area.

Wow- Impressive. :)
GATEKEEPER-I came, I rode, I was mildly disappointed; until a second ride (rear left) put GateKeeper back on the...it's a nice ride list.
Awesome, thanks for sharing!
I can almost here the cannon and splash. Very cool.
Eat 'em up, Tigers, eat 'em up!
What was the pirate ride like? I'm 13 so I don't know what it is or how it was.
Favorite coaster: Millennium Force
Favorite flat: maXair
I think someone posted this link a long time ago. Brings back a lot of memories.
Great job. Love the pic and video link.
Great job! I love that mural. Thanks for posting!!
Watching the video brought back so many memories!
lol I still couldn't help but laugh at the corniness / randomness of the ride a bit, but today it was taking on a more vintage vibe with me, which was kind of cool.
I just remember how awful the maintenance was on Pirate Ride at times. One of my later rides, the bar scene didn't work, the dragon balloon didn't blow up, no octopus movement, no cannons or sound in the ship room, no hanging, no moving skeleton or laughing at the end...it was just a dark ride with a whole lot of nothing. You know...it kind of reminds me of the state of Disaster Transport today...

Well at least CP is consistent with their theming if nothing else!
