Capone's vs. Pirates Dinner Adventure
Although we'd rather have visitors choose Capone's Dinner Show over any other dinner theater, many guests attend multiple shows during their vacation. Therefore, we'd like to provide our 'review' of the other shows in the area. In this post we spotlight Pirate?s Dinner Adventure. We?ll give you our favorable comments - then at the bottom of the article, we?ll provide a few reasons why we think Capone's may be your better choice - if you're only attending one dinner show.

Ahoy Mate, check out the Pirate's Dinner Adventure Show for a swashbuckling good time. This interactive show has comedy, romance, acrobatics, a hearty feast, and plenty of action! The "stage" is actually a fully-rigged pirate ship!
The fun starts even before the show begins as you enjoy The Kings Festival, where you get to take pictures with pirates and enjoy appetizers, as well as a full bar. You can purchase souvenirs from the gift shop. You can also customize your adventure by upgrading your package to the Governor's VIP Lounge Experience in the beautifully decorated Treasure Trove. The Governor's VIP lounge is perfect for private parties (birthday, anniversary and wedding) or any special event. (Tip: book in advance as seating is limited in the Treasure Trove and tends to sell out.)
During the show, enjoy a delicious three-course feast as the reprehensible pirate, Sebastian the Black, has captured the beautiful Princess Anita, her court AND the audience. Audience members get to participate, and there are parts for both adults and children alike. Dinner includes a salad or soup, chicken or pork main dish, complete with sides, and a royal dessert. A great time for the entire family!
After this delightful show, check out the after-show party, The Buccaneer Bash. The perfect end to an evening of adventure, you can meet the pirate crew from the show and dance the night away at this 70s-style disco.

Another option for adults is Treasure Tavern; a separate, 18 and older show located within the Pirate's Dinner Adventure complex. This 2-hour show is filled with comedy, acrobatic acts, live music, dancing, fantastic dining, and plenty of rum! You can enjoy the signature Rum Punch, free upon entry (to those over 21). Opened in 2010, this new show is a wonderful getaway from the ordinary.
Now that you are a little more familiar with Pirate's Dinner Adventure, we'd like to share how Capone's compares.
- Parking is free at Capone's - Pirate's charges extra to park.
- Pre-show drinks are far more expensive than Al's Secret Hideaway Bar.
- Free refills of your drink during the show have been noted as slow to come - our staff will keep your glasses full.
- ALL of our drinks are included in the ticket price - even alcoholic drinks - and we offer more choices; Pirate's charges extra for certain drinks.
- Because we offer a large 4-course dinner menu, our servers are able to entertain you as they serve - in fact, our wait staff often becomes part of the show!
- Our 4-course dinner menu selection allows the food to be HOT unlike pre-selected plated food with servers trying to deliver hundreds of plates of food to the guests while still hot - many guests receive cold food at other dinner show restaurants.
- Our souvenirs are reasonably priced with dozens of items under $5.
- Seating allows a little more room than some dinner shows that cram as many guests on benches with limited elbow room.
- Although Capone's does not offer pre-show appetizers [appetizers are part of the 4-course meal], many reviews claim the appetizers do nothing to contribute to a good experience at Pirates.
- Capone's VIP Upgrade is less expensive than Pirates VIP experience.
- Capone's upgraded the lighting and sound system in 2008 which has added to the overall experience - especially for our older guests.
- Our theatre has undergone a renovation - beautiful and CLEAN - and still manages to keep the 1930's charm.
