Pirate is a HUSS Pirate Ship located at Attractiepark Slagharen in Slagharen, Overjissel, Netherlands. It was introduced to the park for the 1997 season [1].


The ride was originally known as “Hanseatic” and was built for German travelling showman Rudolf Robrahn in 1979 [2]. The ride was sold to the Bembom family who opened the ride at Dreamland Margate for their first season in control of the park in 1982. For the 1986 season the “Hanseatic” was sent on loan to Southport Pleasureland for 2 years [3]. From here the ride was sold to German showman Karl Josef-Wiehs at the end of 1987, who renamed and redecorated the ride into the more standard “Pirat” [4].
