I had a great time a few weeks ago getting to go on Pirates the day it re-opened. I just missed Darkbeer on the Tuesday, Im in one of his photos, just as he was about to board the Mark Twain, we were getting off. Thanks to the info I found here, I asked and may family and I got to pilot the ship in the wheelhouse! Definatly a great time and memories for us all.
One thing I did want to get but could not find (perhaps due to crowds the ODV popcorn cart wasn't there), is the Pirates Popcorn bucket. As silly as it sounds we like to collect, and use them at home. They help to insure equal portions, and make the popcorn taste better! Does anyone know if these are out yet? If so I'll ask DeliverEars if this is something they can send me, or if someone here can, I'll send them $20.00 paypal so they can buy 2 buckets, eat the popcorn, and ship them to us.
If anyone can help I would appreciate it! Thanks in advance!
p.s. Anyone interested in a long trip report and pics?
