While doing research for something, I stumbled on something called "Pirate Adventure" at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. A little research uncovered the video below, and I'll be darned, it's a legit dark ride at the Virginia Beach oceanfront. I'm going to check it out sometime, but the video is below.

So I did a bit more research on this, and I've found some info on it, some of it laughably awesome. From what I can gather, the video up there is out-dated, but I'm not 100% sure. It's also closed for the winter, so I wouldn't be able to check it out until the Summer.

-It's a "Haunted" attraction, so there are scare actors who jump out. It looks like like one of the gimicks of this ride is that the scenery gets close to the point where you have to be aware of them, and when you're distracted the actors will come out. (That's good)

-It's re-themed from an outer space/time travel theme, the building apparently has a UFO outside and the decorations are apparently aliens re-painted as pirates. There's also a three eyed pirate in there. (That's bad)

-What I've seen, and despite the re-theming, some of the decorations look impressive for what it is, particularly the shark and octopus. (That's good)

-There's also a Dinosaur in there for some reason... (That's bad)

-The ride is $6, but for $24, you get admission to that, two haunted houses, and a maze of mirrors, all on the strip. (That's good)

-The ride looks like it might have Potassium Benzoate (???)

This ride is a good funny PotC knock off type thing. It's funny, but awesome at the same time. It is operated by the same people who have that awesome Haunted House on the strip(Nightmare Mansion), which Despite it's lack of props and cheesiness is still pretty terrifying.

Yeah there were actors popping out. I think it's only during peek time which would be summer to halloween, but mainly after dark. It's a good ride in a cheap entertaining way. Good date ride.
