Treasure Island Hotel - Casino, Las Vegas
Arrrrghh. This is probably the coolest free show I have ever seen. Performed 6 times a night, this show is so realistic that you feel instantly transported to the 19th Cen. Caribbean or onto a Hollywood film set. You can actually feel the heat from the cannon fire during the fierce battle between the pirates and the British Royal Navy. As an extra bonus, ladies, the pirates are all very easy on the eyes. Makes you happy that they win!
Not to be outdone by the neighboring Mirage's erupting volcano, Treasure Island, (or TI) has a nightly pirate show outside the hotel. The show is put on several times a night. The show is being upgraded from a mere battle of pirates to one involving scantily clad women, hence the title "The Sirens of TI."
I heard they were going to close this show and I guess they have. Kind of sad and end of an erra.
We have been in this casino several times and seem to have some pretty good luck when we did gamble. The Free live performance in front of the casino was pretty cool with huge live props such as a pirate ship that was very enjoyable.
Yet, I guess the times have changed and the casino thinks it needs to attract the younger crowds, well lets hope they are 21. It is called Sirens of TI® and begins with a 17th century clash between a group of beautiful, tempting sirens and a band of renegade pirates as stated on the web site. Ok, I was pretty content with the old pirate show instead of prancing women and hulky men who are supposedly doing battle…Yeah right whatever!
It is at least FREE to see, so why not. Located in front of Treasure Island Cove- nightly at 7:00 p.m., 8:30 p.m., 10:00 p.m., and 11:30 p.m.
One of the things I enjoy doing is traveling to places such as "Spa Destinations" I have been to many, many Spas both expensive and ones that are not so expensive. Some of the better Spas in Las Vegas are: The Canyon Ranch at the Venetian (yes, the same Canyon Ranch in Tucson, AZ), The Spa at Bally's, The Hard Rock hotel, The Luxor and the Spa at Treasure Island. I recently enjoy the facilities at The Spa at the Treasure Island, they have state of the art gym equipment as well as a full women's spa and men's spa.
Prior to the appointment time, I went to the gym. I had no work out gear with me so the staff at Treasure Island was quick to offer shorts and a T-shirt. I got a 20 minutes session on the treadmill prior to my facial.
When I made the appointment there was very few little time slots to be had. I had the express mini facial, indivual lashes and a brow shaping (that is all there was time for.) The facialist, Lea had the BEST hands for facial massage. I thought about the quality of the Express facial and would I truely benefit from it? Yes I did as the facial was wonderful, I did not feel slighted at all.
Then, I went into the Spa and used the dry sauna, took a shower with quite the array of products and implements needed. Redken Shampoo, Conditioner, hair mousse, razors, body soap,lotion, listerine, q-tips, deodorant, hair dryers, curling irons. There was tea, coffee and fruit laid out for general consumption. Bathrobe and water shoes were provided as well as a locker to put your belongs in.
When Treasure Island opened in 1993, its funky pirate theme was mostly geared towards kids in an effort to bring families to Las Vegas and open up a whole new market for the city. Soon enough, it became clear that Sin City would more or less always remain an adults playground, and in 2003 the hotel's "Buccaneer Bay" became the more sexy "Siren's Cove".
Two of the hotels attractions are quite famous. The first one is the Cirque du Soleil show "Mystere", the Cirque's first resident show in Vegas and still one of the most popular. The second one is the free "Sirens of T.I." show that takes place every night outside the hotel. Even though the show's storyline is pretty simple (a power struggle between a bunch of sirens and a bunch of pirates, guess who wins?!), it still gives a pretty good idea of what a Las Vegas show is all about: some pretty good special effects, a catchy soundtrack, some humor and plenty of sexy dancers. Of course, the fact that it's free makes it a very popular attraction so showing up about 30 min before showtime is a good idea if you want to grab a good spot. You can catch the "Sirens of T.I." at 5:30 pm, 7:00 pm, 8:30 pm and 10:00 pm.
The Treasure Island Hotel and Casino describes its Sirens of TI show as a "modern musical-meets-action-movie spectacular". The shows features music, dancing, swordplay, acrobatics, pyrotechnics and even a full size ship sinking. The show is about 15 minutes long and features a group of scantily clad women fighting a band of pirates. What used to be the Treasure Islands Pirates Battle was replaced by the Sirens of TI show as they try to get a more sexy image for the hotel and casino. You might want to arrive early to get a good spot close to the action so there are no problems seeing over the crowds heads.
Every night at 7:00 p.m., 8:30 p.m., 10:00 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.
Little note for anyone who has watched the movie 'Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous' the part where she is in the ship was actually shot in the Treasure Island Ship.
Actually, I think since Treasure Island has changed its logo to "TI", they've also changed their pirate show to "The Sirens of TI". I've not seen this one, but being a free show right on Las Vegas Blvd I'd imagine that it must be family friendly too. Shows run from late afternoon to evening every hour and a half. (Check the website for actual times)
These aren't like any pirates you've ever seen . . . and any of you who like women in scanty costumes will be glad! (OK, you do get to see a bit of beefcake, too, but the women are the main attraction here.) Treasure Island's revamped (and recamped) free pirate show is pure Vegas cheese and show(wo)manship -- and that's why you've gotta love it. There's a thin plot about a captured boy pirate and his shipmates who come to "rescue" him . . . but this is about girls in thongs dancing on a ship, and men in boots and pirate pants climbing aboard (so to speak). There are still some spectacular explosion effects, and a whole ship sinking (in front of a hotel/casino, right along the street), and some high diving into the water.
The Treasure Island Hotel and Casino is located on the Las Vegas Strip. The theme of this hotel is about pirates, ships, the sea, and treasures. There's a great show outside the entrance of this casino at night. Come early to reserve a spot as it can get pretty crowded with little space outside the casino. The show is great for kids.
Treasure Island hotel,is located just next to the Mirage hotel.Is a very good option if you are travelling with children aswell.There are a few very good live-actions shows.I recommend you to see that one:Sirens of TI Show,well this new show it is oriented just for adults,but children can have some fun seeing the others free shows in the hotel.
Another interesting option to stay specially if you are visiting Las Vegas with children,is the hotel CIRCUS CIRCUS,sorry but I don't have a picure of it!!.
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.
Pirates unloading their pillaged booty are approached from the east by the British Navy in search of the stolen goods! A dynamic battle ensues with cannons, swords and pirates swinging on ropes! The show is free, and happens nightly every 45 minutes. If you go into the bar at the casino about 15 minutes prior to the battle, you can get some great photos from the outdoor seating at the bar!
***THIS ATTRACTION HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED***
The show is being "revamped" into a more adult themed show called The Sirens Of T.I. (T.I. is going to be the new name for the Treasure Island Casino, and they have already removed the pirate skull from their sign as well!)
Several times each evening, the Pirates fight the British Army outside the hotel 'Treasure Island'. The British always lose! My daughter's favourite bit is to wait around at the end, when the British ship is raised back up to the surface (it sinks during the show) and to see the very wet captain, usually still in positio and standing to attention!
The show is cancelled if the wind is too strong, and this decision is usually only made at the last minute, so it can be frustrating to stand in a perfect position for 30 minutes or so, to no avail. But it is fun to watch!
This is, in my opinion, was the best free show to see in Vegas. There was a show of Pirates vs. the Britt's. There is an actual replica of a pirate ship that floats on a small lake. There is plenty of fire and stunts. If you didn't get a chance to see this show, than too bad, because the show has changed! The remodeling started July 6, 2003 and reopened October 26, 2003. The new show (in my opinion), is the worst show in Vegas. I highly recommend never seeing it! If you don't take my word for it, than you will want to get their 30 minutes early to get a good spot. Standing room only! See the show at night to get the full effects! For more information, see my other description on the new Treasure Island show called Sirens of TI.
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...
