The origin and historical development of pirate ship amusement equipment

The pirate ship is a mechanical amusement ride based on the shape of a real pirate ship. It swings back and forth, allowing visitors to experience varying degrees of weightlessness while sitting in different positions.  

The Pirate Ship ride was invented by Charles Albert Marshall of Oklahoma, USA, between 1893 and 1897, and was originally called “The Ocean Wave”. The Ocean Wave was first used in a circus show at Marshall Brothers Circus in 1897.  

After more than 100 years of development, there are many amusement equipment companies produced by pirate ship, with basically the same operation principle, but the appearance of the hull is different, and the names are also varied: Sea Dragon, Pharaoh’s Fury, Sea Ray, Viking Ship, Schiffsschukeln, etc. . It has even designed and produced pirate ships with 360-degree swing angles, as well as mini pirate ships specially designed for children.

At present, pirate ship amusement equipment has become the standard configuration of amusement parks, with many fans. Among them, the 40-seat FRP pirate ship produced by Sinorides has won praise from many tourists for its retro appearance, reliable safety devices and smooth operation.
