We arrived early as to get a good seat, as it was suggested first come first serve. Parking was free. I had arranged the tickets on Line for £27pp,six of us, ages ranged from 19 -50. So all we needed to do was to go to the kiosk,where we were given a colour and ticket.
Eventually we were allowed in, where we had a family photo taken wearing different pirate gear. Off we went,with what looked like a very empty room with a small gift outlet,bar,and not many seats. Drinks where very expensive. We had two pepsi, two beers, and three cocktails these came to $62,ouch! Entre was wheeled out on trolleys,where you queued for,what looked like a scoop of tuna mush and sprinkled with crisps/chips. We did discover it was chicken. Terrible,it didn't get any better.
Entertainment started in the bar,then when your colour was shouted out by one of the pirates we entered the show area. very impressive. a large ship,and ropes,etc. We were seated at tiered benches,which was set ready for dinner,plastic plate,dish and knife and fork. Pirates were walking around the audience,even climbing through seated people,with lots of banter going on and generally encouraging everyone to join in. The down side was one of my party was picked out by a pirate to go and participate in the show,where she politely rejected the offer,but he still kept going on and on,it felt very uneasy.
Dinner consisted of Salad,well lettuce and a cherry tomato,I love salad but that was rabbit food. You did had a choice of ranch dressing and french dressing,dolloped from a bottle. I chose roast chicken and vegetables very dry and salty but just about edible. Problem was the show had started at this point and you were still expected to cheer.shout stand up and clap...Bad timing. The server worked very hard to get everyone served. Desert was...I think apple pie,I'm sure I came across a very small piece of pastry, and ice-cream. You also had two re-fills of a soft drink. The photo guy was also trying to sell the Photos that had previously been taken,in the dark and noise.
Show was a lot of running,jumping,shouting,fights, all you expect from a Pirate show,but I'm sorry nothing at all gave me the wow! factor. Maybe this show was more for the younger viewer. The Pirates did encourage the audience to participate and had a lot of children on stage, which was nice but again it didn't do anything for us. In which we hopefully, discreetly, made our exit before the show finished.
