North Texas Jellystone Park in Burleson is building a 10-cabin pirate ship for families to rent, because who hasn’t dreamed of being a pirate and sleeping on a ship?

According to a news release from Jellystone Park, the ship will be 260 feet long with 85-feet masts. Each cabin can sleep a family of six, complete with a kitchen and a private bathroom with a shower.

“It looks like something out of a storybook,” said Steve Stafford, Jellystone Park general manager, in a news release. “It even has two cannons with red lights to simulate the firing of cannonballs.”

The pirate ship is the latest rental accommodation for families at Jellystone Park. Last year, the park finished adding 20 two-bedroom cabins, raising the total of cabins to 120. The park also added more RV sites for a total of 221.

And the pirate ship isn’t the only addition to Jellystone. By Memorial Day weekend, the park will open the new 65-foot tall, 350-foot long double waterslide in the Pirates’ Cove water park.
