    I can remember playing at Skull Rock, but not eating at the ship. The combination of Skull Rock, Swiss Family Treehouse and Tom Sawyer Island was the greatest playground ever built.

    Also, there once was a Jungle Island just outside the gates of Knott's, just north of Independence Hall, which was another great playground, but sadly it is also long-gone.

    I don't remember. I wasn't born yet, but I do envy the fact that you got to experience it.

    Never ate there, but always wanted to. However, my parents were under the impression that the menu only held tuna sandwiches, and they weren't interested, and as I had no job to buy my own food, I was out of luck.

    I still remember and miss it, though. If nothing else, it was just downright beautiful.

    I'm jealous of those who got to.
    I never go to see the ship.
    I'd love if they could bring it back.

    I remember skull rock more than I remember the ship. But it could be that I didn't connect the ship to Peter Pan/pirates so it probably wasn't as magical to me as skull rock was.

    With the Fantasyland remodel in 1982/83. Such a shame, too.

    Well that explains it, my first visit was in 1986. At least they did try to save it.
