Ahoy! Swab the decks and ready the pirate puns!
Final preparations are underway at Pirates Voyage Dinner and Show for a third swashbuckling season, where the adventure and fun of the fearless crew of characters will set sail on Feb. 12, 2021, in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.
What is the Pirates Voyage Dinner and Show?
Pirates Voyage combines the adventure of sword fights, cannons and pirates scaling high above two full-sized pirate ships in a “fight” to win Davy Jones’s coveted sunken treasure.
Beautiful mermaids gracefully perform high above the water before diving and disappearing back into Buccaneer Bay, while a couple of castaways win a battle with Captain Blackbeard through their pirate wit.
The characters combine heroics and high-flying fun that will have guests cheering and experiencing thrills around every corner in an epic battle for lost treasure on land, on deck and in the water of the show’s 15-foot-deep indoor lagoon.
“This show is a fantastic journey where families can create lasting memories together. We are living in a time when it’s never been more important to be together and create experiences not to be forgotten,” said Leah Hicks, Corporate Director of Marketing for Pirates Voyage.
“Families love experiencing all of the unique elements of our show – with ship to ship battles, cannons blazing, acrobatics and a delicious feast.”
What food is served at Pirates Voyage?
In addition to the show, guests are served a hearty – HA! There ye go, PR people – four-course feast.
The meal begins with the pirates’ very own voyager creamy vegetable soup and buccaneer bread.
The feast fit for a pirate – or mermaid – continues with cracklin’ pan-fried chicken, swashbucklin’ sugar-cured ham, buttery corn on the cob, and an herb-basted potato.
God knows, you’ve never truly had ham until you’ve had a swashbucklin’ ham.
Walk the plank peach turnover and unlimited Coca-Cola products, tea or coffee complete the meal.
Vegetarian and gluten-free meals are available by request. And alas, there be no grog.
Dairy-free is also available upon request.
How much are Pirates Voyage tickets?
Tickets can sell out, so be sure to book your seat ahead of time.
Ticket prices are $59.99 for adults (10 and over) and $29.99 for children ages 3 to 9.
These prices may vary by selection and are subject to change.
How long does the Pirates Voyage show last?
The show is approximately an hour and a half long.
Doors open 30 minutes before show time.
It is not advised that guests show up more than 45 minutes before their scheduled show time.
Will there be sea shanties?
I hope so!
I’ve been singing those sea shanties for a while now, and it seems like a real missed opportunity if our pirates don’t open with a few of them.
Either way, you can bet on the fact that there will be plenty of entertainment in the form of acrobatics, comedy, animal acts and adventure worthy of the high seas.
