Get ready to embark on a swashbucklin’ voyage through Cornwall’s pirating past at Pirate’s Quest, Newquay – Come face to face with smugglers, mermaids, and real LIVE buccaneers! A brand new storyline for 2017 will see visitors transported back over 300 years to the Golden Age of Piracy and the dawn of The Republic of Pirates.

A notorious band of buccaneers known as ‘The Flying Gang’ have been sent to Cornwall by their illustrious leader, Captain Blackbeard, in hopes of finding new recruits to join The Republic of Pirates.

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.

The hour-long walk-through experience will allow pirate fans and their crew mates the chance to feel, hear, smell, and see Cornwall’s intriguing legends and exciting history. Every performance is pitched for each individual group making Pirate’s Quest an adventure the whole family can enjoy together

Super!

Great actors, great fun - full of interesting facts. Similar to the Shrek adventure in London. Quizes for kids to do on the way. Go the scary route, it's well worth it.

I visited Pirate's Quest (thanks to Trip Advisor) with my 8yo and 4yo and we had a great time. I booked on-line about an hour before coming but if you book 24 hours before, you can use a code to get 10% off. You'll find the code in the Cornwall tourist magazine or, if like me your staying at Hendra,... More

As the title states the staff were really enthusiastic when you enter and about what was going to happen. Pirates quest is a walk through story experience, I think perhaps this would be more suited to younger children. They have a nice gift shop of all 'piratey' things that should keep any budding pirate happy. Its a cool stop for... More

Booked online with ease. Was greeted in the pirate shop by a friendly pirate and given a treasure map and pencil. All staff were very friendly and made the experience very realistic. Lots of fun and facts about Pirates that both children and adults can enjoy. The experience is interactive so would recommend to those who are up for it.... More

A fun hours activity more suited to younger children but 4 adults enjoyed it just as much. You are taken around by two different pirates completely in character. A treasure hunt and clues to be found.

Our 4 year old loves pirates and he was not disappointed and loved the hour spent with the two pirates hearing the stories. He even wanted to do the scary bit but there is an option of missing it if you want. The different room effects were very good. Full marks also for the pirates remembering what they had to... More

Had a really good hour of fun, laughter and scares! The actors and staff made the experience all the more atmospheric and did a good job of including both teenagers and youngsters. Really enjoyable.

Fantastic, went with my 9 and 13 year old girls. Both totally enthralled. Loved the mix of theatre, humour, entertainment and bit of educational information thrown in.
