About the Ride Info Box

Galleon is a pirate ship themed rocking ride located in the Boulevard. It opened in 1985.

In 2017, after several years of not working, the pre-ride audio returned. It now features a new pirated-sounding safety spiel and some pirate sea shanties.

Trivia

Soundtrack

Up until the late 90s, there was a soundtrack that would play as the ride started. It contained the sounds of ocean waves, and some of the music from Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride (the "Yo Ho" song).
