Hurricane Irma Destroys Pirates Dinner Show Roof in Orlando
Hurricane Irma blew through Florida over the weekend leaving the Orlando attractions with mostly minimal damage.
Originally meteorologists had projected the hurricanes path to head straight through Tampa, Florida. Fortunately, Irma took a sudden turn to the East and busted up the most powerful part of the storm. Irma did pass over the Orlando attractions and theme parks, but since it was significantly less powerful, the damages were minimal and included mostly trees and debris. One Orlando attraction however wasn’t so lucky…
Celebrating its 20th year in Orlando, The Pirates Dinner Adventure theater was hit hard and lost a big section of its roof. Photos from Jerry McNeely’s Jam Sky Cam show some of the damages.
The Pirates Dinner Adventure currently offers 3 award winning shows each with a unique theme – filled with the perfect blend of family fun, daring duels, comedy, romance and adventure. The stage is a authentically replicated 18th-century pirate ship measuring 46 feet long, 18 feet wide with 40-foot masts, AND best of all, surrounded by water. While watching, guests are served an appetizer, a main course, and then dessert. Here’s a few photos and a video of what the show normally looks like.
The lobby offers some awesome pirate themed photo ops as well! Get there early to avoid lines at the photo ops!
Pirates Dinner Adventures offers a variety of different dinner shows through-out the year, each with their own unique theme. The video trailer below shows some clips of what a guest can expect.
Repairs are already taking place to get everything back up and running. All shows are currently canceled for the remainder of the week. For more information, visit the official Pirates Dinner Adventure Orlando website by clicking here.
