Our Step List
1 Captain drops a bag of rice on the wheel
2 The rice weighs down a spoke and turns the wheel
3 The rotating wheel has a pole connected with another attachment that hits barrel 1 off the boat
4 The barrel that falls off the boat has a string tied to a stopper in front of barrel 2 on the edge of the stairs
5 Once released, barrel 2 rolls down stairs and lands on button
6 The button turns on a fan
7 The fan pushes boat on wheels
8 A string is connected to the boat which is attached to pirate in the crows nest, when the boat moves, it pulls on the pirate
9 The pirate goes down a zipline (released in step 8)
10 The pirate hits weight on a platform at bottom of zipline
11 The weight falls down a tube and into a cup
12 The cup weighs down a pulley which pulls up on the “can of cannon balls”
13 A cannonball is released (the magnetic one) and rolls down a tube
14 Once released through the funnel, the ball hits the others causing the last cannonball to shoot out other end of ramp
15 The ball hits a cart with several needles on it
16 The needles move forward and pop a balloon
17 The balloon is supporting a platform (tape), so once popped the platform collapses
18 A pirate on the platform swings on a pendulum
19 He hits another pirate on the plank
20 He falls off the plank and pulls a stopper that is holding a ball in place
21 The ball, once released, hits a barrel w/ weight inside
22 A chain of barrels with weights go up an inclined plane
23 Top barrel falls off plane and onto mouse trap
24 Mousetrap pulls popsicle stick with string that releases ball from newton’s cradle
25 cradle hits a marble onto marble tracks
26 Marble hits ping pong ball pendulum
27 Pendulum hits book
28 Book hits marble down marble track
29 Marble drops into the pulley
30 Pulley hits golf ball
32 Golf ball falls down tube
33 It hits grog bottles
34 Last beer bottle hits a book
35 Book hits already open scissors.
36 The scissors cut a string.

39 Mousetrap will pull a string that is attached to a wrench
40 Wrench is pulled turning on the record player
41 Record players arm hits bouncy ball
42 Bouncy ball goes down funnel hits mousetrap
