Pilbeam was visiting Los Angeles from England for a week and how do Lady Geeks choose to entertain themselves? By going to the Pirate’s Dinner Adventure in Buena Park, California, of course.
Located right next to Medieval Times! The Pirate’s Adventure show was aimed at children but with a full bar for the adults. Ridiculously overpriced alcohol but at least we get to keep our glasses. The show itself was really fun and lighthearted, not as much angst as the Medieval Times show.
Just like Medieval Times, the audience members were divided by different colors that corresponded with a particular pirate. Like they were Power Rangers. We were with the Red Pirate’s crew who was known as Jack, an infamous thief.
There was a lot of pirate shenanigans, singing and dancing. Even professional acrobats who performed an aerial silk act.
The pirate ship set alone was pretty impressive and I’m pretty sure it was life size. It was built for the actors to run around and jump off on ropes and ramps. There was even a trampoline in the middle, which got us way too excited. . .
Gizzy B was chosen by our pirate to wave the official red flag for our section. I knew she was meant to do great things in life! In the middle of the show, she even helped our pirate win one of the challenges too by tossing balls up to him. No, that is not a euphemism. This is a kids’ show, you guys.
As for the dinner part, the food was okay but it wasn’t anything fancy or memorable. Though I think that they had better food than Medieval Times. In fact, I would say I prefer this show way better than the Medieval Times overall but perhaps I am biased towards pirates. Like I mentioned before, the Pirate’s show was a lot of more comedic and fun with a lot of more audience participation. They even brought up the kids from the audience on to the ship to participate in a scene. Adorable!
Highly recommended to parents with pirate-loving and adventurous children. Or to people like us who just like funny pirates. Okay, the pirates are pretty hot too so that was a plus.
The majority of the Defective Geeks ladies in one place – the Space Pirate Queen (that’s me!), Sailor Mizz, my mother (don’t judge, she thought we were taking her to a pirate strip show), Gizzy B and Fortune Cookie.
