Orlando >Pirate's Dinner Adventure
Worst Experience of my life. To start off, we had to pay for parking. When do you have to pay to eat at a restaraunt? Just as I entered this musty establishment, I was bumbarded by upgrade signs to my dinner . I had to know what was to come. We entered and we were pushed in a corner with pirate garb thrown on us to take our picture which would later cost us $20. We were then left standing in this dark pub like atmosphere to watch a stupid show with volunteers. I took my son to get his face painted and found out it would cost $14. We decided to approach the dark buffet line of free jail food appy's. It consisted of a spoon full of pasta salad or some veggies and dip which you ate in the dark in a corner some where because we were not given a seat. Finally 45 minutes later they let us in the dinner theatre where eventually we were served more jail food. The rice tasted like Side Kick, old and cold. My son 's chicken strips tasted like rubber. My 4 year old begged me to take it away. Lucky I had snacks in my purse. Aside from the musty moldy smell in the air, the show had some good acrobatics, yet no plot line. There were times I felt I was watching a very loud Pirate Porn show. With The little gal being tossed from guy to guy with her double D's bouncing at the crowd like some peep show. This show seemed neverending. It was like a bad night at the casino and I'm not getting my money back. You would be better off eating out of a dumpster and watching paint dry.
dont waste your money. save yourself the $60+ per person.... if you have kids milk is not on the menu...unless u pay extra but they will give you plenty of coke instead.... they stated a glass of wine or beer but did not give the option....have to read the fine print on when to show up and dont expect the confirmation email even in the spam folder... management was not helpful...mainly shrugged and stated sorry...and even if you buy online you have to stand in line to get your tickets as well....wish i went to chucky cheese instead the food would of tasted better
Set sail on a high seas adventure at one of Orlando's favorite dinner theaters..
Fencing, flipping and flying through the air, pirates face off on a replica 18th century Spanish ship in a 300,000 gallon indoor lagoon. They sing, they dance, they hang by their neck from the flying trapeze. And while the choice of food is a bit random--turkey and shrimp or turkey and pork--the show is worth every dime. Airy profiteroles with ice cream is a welcome dessert. Diners are encouraged to root for the pirate matching the color of their section and slosh mugs of complementary beer with the cast. After the finale, complete with pyrotechnics, party like pirates during the Buccaneer Bash.
If you like cheap TV dinners and so-so acting, this is the show for you!!. Wow, what a disappointment! What food was served was horrible. For starters, the pre-show buffet consisted of standing in line for a tiny bit of pork on a piece of bread then making our way to the next line for a sliver of salmon on a cracker, then on to the next line for whatever and so on...it was not quite what we expected. And as for the main meal, well it certainly wasn't the "Feast" that was portrayed in the brochure and on the website. Let's see...one small ice-cream scoop of instant mashed potatoes and an equally small amount of runny stuffing accompanied by a few rubbery shrimp, one almost unrecognizable piece of lobster (by either sight or taste) and a small hunk of turkey. Oh yeah, and a medley of carrots, broccoli and cauliflower that could have been a bit warmer--this was the only food that there was enough of--as any amount was more than enough (actually, now that I think about it, I don't think we would have wanted any more of the other stuff posing as food either). This much-less-than-desirable food followed a tiny amount of salad fresh (or not so fresh) out of a bag for me and a small ladle's amount of vegetable soup for my spouse that brandished at best two pathetic green beans and a lowly carrot. As for the show-- it had its moments, but most of the time it was mediocre at best and it was often a strain to try to understand what was being said and follow the plot line, which was very different from what we expected. And it didn't help that while the adventure was going on tinkers were selling their cheap (yet not cheaply priced) wares (souvenirs) up and down the isles. This was the first time we have ever been to a dinner show, and after this experience it will most likely be our last. We ended up leaving early and had we known where a Denny's was located we would have used our 20% off coupon we received upon checking in and treated ourselves to some better food--how sad it that?
Great Experience. I took my family of 5 to Pirates on November 20, 2007, Great experience!!!!! What an adventure ! Christmas Pirates style a new twist. The cast were fantastic . The kids are still talking about it. The food was more than we expected for a dinner show. They really put a lot of thought into it. I would and will suggest this show to any family with kids big or small. It was worth the money. One of the kids will be celebrating a birthday soon and we plan to take her there to celebrate. My hats off to Pirates Dinner Adventure and thank you for being here in the Central Florida Area.
i went to this dinner thing on 09/06/06 and if i didnt have to pay for this experince i would of be v.v.v.v.v. disaponted
there was only 50 people there and it was just really bad! the show wasnt funny , the food horrible .
NEVER EVER AGAIN!!
Great time a little pricy. I had a great time with my family, it was interactive, and fun! They engaged the audience the way good dinner shows do, and there was good food to boot. The kids in the crowd get a special part in the show and have a great time! You are active through most of the show and it is all fun stuff I would definitely recommend this to anyone, and I will definitely go again.
fun for all ages. I read some bad reviews before going, and almost didn't buy tickets because of it, but my kids love pirates so we went. We loved it! It was full of excitement and all kinds of acrobatics. None of us could finish our meal- there was so much food! The free drinks were rarely empty. The pre party seemed tooo crowded and made me nervous feeling, other than that- I highly recommend if you like this sort of thing. My boys LOVED it!!
Bad Adventure. I took my family of 5 to the Pirate Adventure in 10/03, and it was terrible. The show was tacky and boring, and the food was pathetic. We were encouraged to show up early for pre-show buffet, but learned that the primary purpose of the buffet (potato chips and celery) was to try to sell junky pirate trinkets. If you're educated and at all discriminating, don't waste your money on this garbage. It was so bad it was almost funny-good.
Good Service---but!!!!!. I took my family and found the show ok for kids, food was fair, value overall was average. There were a lot of English and Irish, they seemed to really like the show. Most of the American's did not care for the theme of the show. The crowd was very rowdy and somewhat offensive, however by today's standards it could be considered wholesome entertainment. All in all I would go to King Henry's feast or any other show in the area, the value is much better. thank you! Mike A
