First New Ride of 2019 ‘Pirates of the Deep Sea’
Stroke of Midnight January 1 Opening at Six Flags Fiesta Texas
Innovative, New Adventurous Ride Features State-of-the-Art Gaming
San Antonio, Texas — November 27, 2018 — Six Flags Fiesta Texas, The Thrill Capital of South Texas, is kicking off the New Year in a big way with the theme park industry’s first new attraction of the year; a groundbreaking, new dark ride debuting on January 1, 2019. Pirates of the Deep Sea, is a state-of-the-art gaming experience that pits the cunning skills of guest buccaneers against a marauding band of plundering pirates who try to hornswoggle them out of stolen bounty.
“Innovation is part of the Six Flags DNA and this immersive, new interactive ride is packed with so many amazing special effects that guests will truly feel they are caught in the middle of a raging pirate battle,” said Park President Jeffrey Siebert. “The spell-binding storyline features dastardly pirates, scheming mermaids, and a ship’s ransom in stolen treasue woven into a competitive gaming adventure. This is a ride guests of all ages will want to experience again and again with family and friends.”
Guests board a weathered pirate ship, Man-o-War, to sail through the raging storms of the Bermuda Triangle. As they float past the eerie remains of ghost ships, riders are caught in the middle of a dramatic battle between their pirate ship and an angry mob of pirates portside. Riders will need to be quick on the trigger to blow the man down and defeat the swashbuckling scalawags. As they battle, guests compete with fellow shipmates by firing at hundreds of themed targets to tally a score of their victory at sea.
Pirates of the Deep Sea features:
- Pirate galleon ride vehicles that seat four passengers and equip each passenger with their own personal musket to fire light beams at hundreds of different targets;
- Dramatic audio in 18 different zones, broadcast from a total of 39 speakers, that follows the individidual pirate galleons as they make their way through the perilous journey; and
- Elaborate, three-dimensional scenery re-creates an old seaside village with a gigantic waterfall, moonlit alleyways and hidden pirate’s treasure.
Pirates of the Deep Sea, located in Fiesta Bay Boardwalk, will be unveiled during a Diamond Membership Passholder event at the stroke of midnight on January 1, followed by exclusive Member Previews and a Grand Opening on January 12. Six Flags Fiesta Texas is currently open weekends and select days for Holiday in the Park through January 1. The park is now open weekends and holidays year-round.
