Take the PLUNGE!

The Pirate’s Plunge delivers a breath-taking experience for those who dare to ride it- and its spectators. The suspense begins as the thrill seeking rider walks up the stairs to the top of the 60 foot tower. As they walk inside the capsule, “The Plank”, their heart will begin to race as the door closes and the excitement begins as the rider waits: 3…2…1. The bottom drops and the rider plummets into a 37 foot vertical free fall accelerating up to a speed of 40 mph reaching 59 feet per second as they make the 360 degree loop. Spectators, who do not dare ride the ride, will see the thrill seeker ride through the translucent waterslide and experience the heart-throb just by watching.
