Pirate's Dinner Adventure immerses participants in a swashbuckling shindig filled with epic battles, aerobatics, tricks of light, and sword fights. Nosh complimentary appetizers amid the pre-show King's Festival, a lively sampling of the raucous revelry that is to come. During the Broadway-style main production, a professional cast entertains diners from the deck of a replicated 18th-century Spanish galleon that floats peacefully in a 250,000-gallon indoor lagoon. Guests are seated in one of six surrounding sections and are hostages—along with Princess Anita and her court—of Captain Sebastian the Black, a man of questionable integrity.
Diners cheer for their table's pirate mascot while feasting on a mighty meal accompanied by a bellyful of pirate song, cannon blasts, comedy, rope-swinging buccaneers, pyrotechnics, and romance. As you await your heroic rescue, munch through fresh salad or homemade vegetable soup. Next, dine on your choice of savory oven-roasted half chicken laden with broccoli and caribbean rice or buccaneer barbecue pork loin teeming with buttery mashed potatoes and freshly steamed broccoli trees. Finish your hearty high-seas helping with a dessert of warm apple cobbler, then take the edge off all the adventure and excitement by slurping unlimited soft drinks and coffee during the show and gargling like a pirate.
Though Pirate's Dinner Adventure features a February special online, this Groupon is valid for three months from the feature date, includes tax fees and is still the best deal available.
Pirate's Dinner Adventure
A Broadway-style extravaganza set aboard a replicated 18th-century Spanish galleon, Pirate's Dinner Adventure is one of the only theater performances to require a 250,000-gallon water tank outside of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Manatees. While the dastardly Captain Sebastian the Black lords over his feasting crew of rapscallions, guests get to dine from the deck of one of the six ships surrounding the galleon—and cheer on the plucky pirate representing their vessel in the show. What unfolds is a swashbuckling spectacle of stunts, songs, magic, and acrobatics punctuated with as many fired cannons as belly laughs. Pirates dangle precariously from silk off the 40-foot mast. Treasure chests overflow with booty. Heroes rise from the ranks—and select members of the audience might even be invited by Captain Sebastian to come aboard the stage.
