The “Pirates of the Deep Sea” is the newest ride which will be unveiled at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio, at midnight on New Year’s Day. This state-of-the-art ride will see guests going up against pirates in a battle for booty (the kind that pirates generally want… not the slang.) The gaming ride will have visitors pitted against pirates in a target-focused, high-score tally to the finish.

“Innovation is part of the Six Flags DNA,” said Park President Jeffrey Siebert, “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. The spell-binding storyline features dastardly pirates, scheming mermaids and a ship’s ransom in stolen treasure 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.”

A press release from the Texas Hill Country amusement park explains the concept behind the ride is that visitors will board Man-o-War, a weathered pirate ship, in order to sail through the Bermuda Triangle. They’re given their own personal musket of sorts from which to fire light beams at hundreds of targets throughout the course of the ride. Elaborate scenery and audio also combine to make the ride a full experience. Riders will compete with each other for high scores, and dramatic audio and elaborate three-dimensional scenery add to the experience. The park had closed its Scooby-Doo-themed ride in late 2017 in anticipation of what was termed as a “dark ride” – an attraction which allows guests to be transported through an indoor environment, such as this. While the ride is anticipated to be unveiled at a Diamond Membership Pass Holders event at midnight on January 1, 2019, its grand opening is scheduled for January 12.
