THE SHIPS AHOY
The Ships Ahoy is the Larson International, Inc. interactive spin ride with a child friendly pirate theme. Guests are welcomed onto the attraction with friendly pirate voices and music. Once the ride begins, the entire structure rotates and guests can begin spinning each vehicle independent of one another. The faster you spin the more dizzying the views become. The ride finally comes to a stop and guests see if they can walk straight after exiting the ride.
The Ships Ahoy is a children's ride which easily accommodates adults as well. With its interactive spinning action and professional pirate sound system, it is already a proven winner.
