Family Pirate Adventure - Essex Steam Train and Riverboat

Join us and enjoy a 20-minute ride on the 1920's era Essex Steam Train as it heads to Deep River Landing. There we find a band of pirates who have made camp and their ship "The Becky Thatcher". Ahoy and Avast Me Hearties! Come for a jolly roger of a good time as you join the crew of the pirate Captain Kidd. Hop aboard with the scurvy crew of the Becky Thatcher for a fully immersive, one-of-a-kind treasure hunt on the Connecticut River. You will hear tales of sea serpents, mermaids and buried loot as well as participate in a search for Kidd’s treasure aboard the boat! Sing sea shanties with our band of merry pirates and take away a piece of your newfound treasure! Wear your best pirate outfit! This ride is appropriate for children of all ages!
