As the only location with a decent pirate ship in most locales, Schlitterbahn Waterparks is providing some much needed *expertise on pirate culture for area residents celebrating International Talk Like a Pirate Day on Thursday. Keep these tips in mind as you celebrate:

  • Remember cap’n, share ye funnel cake with ye scurvy crew, lest they mutiny.
  • When wearing ye parrot, keep said bird on yer right shoulder – if ye be left handed.
  • Yer cutlas should be on yer left hip – if ye be right handed. Mind ye don’t injure ye parrot.
  • Hooks, while fashionable accessories, should ner be used fer marshmallow toasting.
  • Walking da plank should not be confused with planking. Arrr.
  • Ye may bring your booty in ye ice filled treasure chest, but leave ye grog and rum on land.
  • Be wary of crocs in da waters, th’ young’uns are quick to lay claim to da beasts.

In honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day, Schlitterbahn encourages everyone to channel their inner scurvy dog and visit the International Talk Like a Pirate Day website for tips on how to sound just like a scallywag.



*Seriously, we just made all this up.
