A real LIVE pirate from the infamous ‘Flying Gang’ will help you escape a shipwreck then lead you through the mystical caves and murky streets of eighteenth century Cornwall to the crew’s recruitment base; Blackbeard’s Tavern. Eventually you’ll arrive at the Captain’s Ship, ready to set sail to an exotic Caribbean island and The Republic of Pirates.

We loved this despite my 6 year old son having a complete meltdown when we first went in. By the time we were on the quest he'd calmed down & began to enjoy it! Fun & informative. Would highly recommend for all the family!

We visited the pirates quest with our 5 and 11 year old. I would definitely recommend on a rainy day, we learnt quite a lot about pirates but in a fun way.
Little bit over priced for what it is but something a bit different.

This is just a great little place and a must visit. It is very reasonably priced and just great especially for young children. Teenagers and adults can have a great time too if they choose to get involved and have a sense of humour. Myself, wife and son who is 12 went.

The staff are extremely professional, stay in character always and work extremely had too. A great credit to the experience. They do a fantastic job in making the experience the best they can.

I like it. It was quirky.

It last about an hour and in my opinion well worth a visit.

It was raining all weekend, during our holiday and we decided to try out Pirate quest, I just love how even when you catch the staff off gaurd, they are always in character. they are very plesent and polite, whilst always keeping a pirate act up. I went with the Mrs, i felt it was more for chrildren however certainly had a few laughs as an adult, the staff have good humour, and know how to tell a story, as well as some jump scare's. i find the quest they encourage you to partake is certainly for chrildren, but it is also a gimmick to get you looking at their props etc. i feel the atmpshere could be better with sounding MUSIC, and interactive lighting, otherwise it just felt like a dramatic walk through. however i enjoyed my visit here and and would recommend to famlies with young chrildren. Thank you guys YARGH.
