La Revanche des Pirates - Grand Splatch (French for The Revenge of the Pirates - Large Splash) is a Shoot The Chute built by Swiss manufacturer Intamin currently located at Parc Astérix in Plailly, Hauts-de-France, France.


The ride originally opened with the park as Le Grand Splatch on 30 April 1989.

In late 2023 the park announced the ride was going to be rethemed as La Revanche des Pirates - Grand Splatch for its 35th Anniversary.[1]

The rethemed ride reopened on 30 March 2024.[2]



The story of the ride centers around the group of pirates from the Astérix comics, as they attempt to get back at the Gaulishs.

During the ride, guests will encounter and survive a series of ill-designed booby-trap while the pirates fail to execute their plans.
