    Pirates Ride Question....

    Was at a party this past weekend talking about the Pirates Ride with a friend who is convinced the ride does a double drop(like a slide with a flat section in between) without any turns between the 1st and 2nd drop. Does anyone have a map or video showing the ride layout?

    I don't have any pictures/videos/maps....but if my brain serves my correctly (which it DOES do sometimes) that is right....there are no turns .... but may be mistaken...it's funny how when you try to remember something simple like that - that you've done hundreds of times.... you can't.

    I don't recall a turn between the drops either.

    Funny how everyone recalls something different. Been on that ride a bunch but cant say for sure! I thought there was a right turn. My friend was "sure" there was no turns so I started to question myself.

    There's a right turn after the first drop.

    Re: Pirates Ride Question....

    Yeah, its more than a slight right turn. While it is gradual, you turn 180 degrees.

    Re: Pirates Ride Question....

    180 degrees? wow. I remember a slight turn but didn't realize the 2nd drop is the opposite direction as the first, but even better for my argument.
    Thank you.

    Re: Pirates Ride Question....

    I'm sure there is a map out there somewhere that will show this with better detail than I can write it but here is the basic layout:


    The boat leaves the station pointed south into the bayou. During the course of the bayou scene the boat makes a 180 degree turn. The first drop takes you from the south end of the building, toward the north end of the building under the blue bayou. The first drop takes you back toward the entrance of the building and back toward NOS. After that drop, you make another 180 degree turn and drop again - this time from the north back toward the south. From NOS back toward the berm - and out to the second showbuilding.

    That's just a basic interpretation of it.
