Pirate ship to walk the plank

August 9, 2017

Rainbow’s End has announced that its popular pirate ship is walking the plank.

The ride will swing for the last time later this month after 34 years at the theme park

Rainbow’s End said they need the space to invest in new and more exciting rides. The park has enjoyed a 62% increase in attendance since 2009.

A special pirate day will be held on Saturday 19 August to farewell the ship, with prizes for the best dressed.

I think this is really sad that the pirate ship is going to be busted down because that ship was there and evreyone has enjoyed going on it at riding,
but for the other reason it has been there for 34 years so it would get a little rusty but i really can't belive this is happening because I have loved going on it as well so remember to go to rainbow end and enjoy the new annul ride that will be built soon at rainbow end.
