Recently we were approached by the folks at Pirate’s Dinner Adventure with an opportunity to review their Pirate’s Dinner Adventure Christmas Show, “Pirates Take Christmas.” You can enter to win 4 tickets too! Enter below! I reached out to my sister to see if she would like to take her pirate-loving son for some holiday fun and here is what she wrote about her experience…
Pirate’s Dinner Adventure in Buena Park (across from Knott’s Berry Farm) is a dinner show experience like no other.
We took my pirate-obsessed son for his 3rd birthday and he was in awe the whole time. So, when we got the opportunity to go again a year later, I jumped at the chance. Especially since we would get the chance to see the ”Pirates Take Christmas” holiday extravaganza featuring Santa, Mrs. Claus and an elf, who are taken captive by the pirates. Well shiver me timbers!
The performance is so entertaining with impressive acting, singing and amazing acrobatics. To get everyone in the Christmas spirit, the show includes some Christmas songs and the theater is decked out in holiday trimmings.
You might think a pirate show would be geared towards little boys, but I am telling you, even if you have girls, there are several ariel artists that are stunning to watch. The show definitely has universal appeal.
Showtimes vary, but you can arrive up to 1 1/2 hours early to have a drink, enjoy complimentary passed appetizers or do some browsing in the gift shop.
The earlier you get there, the better your seating assignment will be. But I have to say there really isn’t a bad seat in the house. The show takes place on the authentic replica of an 18th-century Spanish galleon measuring 46 feet long, 18 feet wide with 40-foot masts anchored in a 250,000-gallon indoor lagoon with night sky lighting.
Surrounding the lagoon is a six-sided showroom of six additional “ships” where the audience is seated. Each of the six ships has its own pirate mascot to cheer on.
Before the show begins, the pirates make a surprising grand entrance into the bar waiting area to escort their “team” into their ship by color section. I didn’t know to warn my son about this part, and he was a bit jumpy seeing these big, gruff pirates so up close and personal. So, if you have a timid little one, make sure to warn them the pirates will be coming in to start the FUN.
The show involves the audience, so audience participation and cheering your team pirate on in a MUST! I would say ages 3 and up would appreciate the action the most.
