My five year old loved the pirate ship adventure! It was hot out but there was a covered seating area on the ship. He loved the props and the “tattoo” he got painted on his arm. Plus definitely recommend to others.

All of my four little pirate mates loved the adventure. It’s a fun and safe activity for the kids. I would certainly recommend to families with small children.

I did not look, but I do not remember seeing any. They were very helpful on the phone, so a call to them should answer the question.

Adults and children are the same cost, even though the adults don't participate in the adventure at all. They sit in the back and are just along for the ride (and pictures).
