Approximately every 90min, a pirate show is put on in front of treasure island on the vegas strip.Filled with live explosions,pirate ships,and full on action, this makes for a must see.View in the evening, but arrive early to guarantee a nice viewing point.
Every 90 minutes each evening, cannon and musket fire are exchanged in a dramatic pyrotechnic battle between the pirate ship Hispaniola and the British frigate H.M.S. Britannia in the middle of Buccaneer Bay.
Sounds of a bustling pirate village fill the air. Waves crash against the pier, seagulls chatter and pirates call to one another as they unload the booty from their ship, the Hispañiola.
Suddenly, the HMS Britannia steals around the corner at Skull Point, and British naval officers challenge the pirates to surrender their valuables and their vessel. The pirates refuse and proudly stand guard to defend their ship.
Thus begins a swashbuckling battle of epic proportion. Cannons roar, smoke billows, munitions explode and mainmasts topple. Until, with one mighty broadside at the waterline, the victors once-majestic British frigate sink slowly into Buccaneer Bay. After all, this is Las Vegas...the pirates always win.
Check out the pirate ship battle at Treasure Island for a good laugh (I can't believe the ending to the battle - it can't be true). for one of the best views get on the balcony of the restuarant (you will need to get there early as large queues forom for this)
You enter this hotel through a coastal village and that's the beginning of the adventure! The big draw at this hotel is the nightly battle fought on the lagoon in front of the hotel! My experience has been GET HERE EARLY!!!! I arrived over 30 minutes before show time and there weren't very many good standing spots left. Also be warned that when the show is over you will be leaving with a few thousand other people. I waited in my spot for over 30 minutes after the show and the sidewalks were still very crowded.
Buccaneer Bay at Treasure Island is a show to see! Arrive early though, as the area does fill up quickly. See my A Pirate's Victory travelogue for the story!!!
A free show!! Do arrive early to get a good view.
Pirate Battle at Treasure Island
Worth seeing at least once. Pirate ships do battle in a pyrotechnic show in the front lagoon of Treasure Island. Every 90 minutes from 5:30pm to 10pm (11:30pm on weekends). Can get crowded so arrive early.
Watch the free show at Treasure Island, they do some skits and stunts for about 5minutes to entertain the crowds walking the strip. Pirates are jumping off a ship into the pool, it's amusing if you've never seen it before. The Bellagio has a water show with fountains and music, the mirage has a fire and water demo, etc, etc...
The Treasure Island Casino offers a Buccaner Bay Sea Battle directly outside the Casino. This free show features a British frigate that fights with a pirate ship in a full scale pyrotechnic battle that results in masts snapping and plunging into the sea and buildings exploding into flames.
Shows run every 90 minutes Sun - Thurs from 4 - 10 pm and Fri & Sat until 11:30 pm.
Be sure to get there early enough to get a good spot, expecially if you have young children with you.
