The Blue Barnacle

Docked down in the cove itself, The Blue Barnacle is a large pirate galleon themed swinging ship ride. Replacing Black Buccaneer, which itself was originally named Smugglers Galleon, when the ride was known for its queue line theming through caves and past skeletons, along with the imposing swinging ship itself that often appeared larger than it really was with the forced perspective of the area.

A moderately thrilling flat ride, Seastorm takes riders aboard small pirate ships as they circle the rocky coast, up and down on the rough waves. When the storm picks up, boats can be turned around, battling the course in reverse. A ride that has had its intensity adjusted several times over the years, the current version has returned the ride to its former glory with the mix of speed and rotating boats.
