Pirates of Speelunker Cave Now Open!
Six Flags Over Texas debuted Pirates of Speelunker Cave, an all-new ride experience, on Saturday, May 14, 2022. This state-of-the-art attraction places guests squarely in the middle of a pirate treasure hunt thwarted by resident Speelunkers.
Ride Experience and Overview
An all-new entry plaza will welcome adventurers with coastal theming and an open vantage point of the ride’s first descent into Speelunker Cave. Once aboard their six-passenger boat, riders will experience 17 brand-new scenes that combine state-of-the-art cinematic projection with immersive sets and animatronics.
Pirates of Speelunker Cave is a re-imagining of one of the park’s first attractions, The Cave, that operated from 1964 until 1991 and replaces the current version of the attraction—Yosemite Sam and the Gold River Adventure. The Cave featured original characters called Speelunkers that were created exclusively for Six Flags Over Texas.
Pirates of Speelunker Cave features:
- 26 six-passenger boats;
- State-of-the-art animatronics throughout the ride experience; and
- Cinema-style, wide-projection technology to fully immerse riders with high-tech digital and physical sets.
