The Pirates Show in Magaluf is the highlight of the holiday for the vast majority of visitors to the resort. Almost without fail both adults and children alike rave about the show which has attracted over three million visitors since it began in the mid 1980s and many of them say it is the best thing they have done in Mallorca.
The show is based in a large theatre in Magaluf which contains a life size pirate ship as the main set. You choose a seat on either the quarter deck or the main deck of the ship or the Captain’s table and enjoy a fabulous night of interactive entertainment with a buccaneers feast and pirate’s punch included.
The price you pay depends on which of the three areas you choose to sit in but no seats are far from the stage and transport from other resorts to Magaluf is included in the price. The food provided is sausages, chicken, chips and coleslaw and although not gourmet it is plentiful and you can ask for more. The punch is sangria which is not too strong but tasty and of course you can buy other drinks at the bar.
It tells the story of Captain Morgan and his sailors who sailed the seven seas in search of treasure. One night they come across an evil French pirate who steals their gold and jewels which sets up a pirate adventure story as the two pirates fight it out to rule the high seas.
The Pirates Adventure is a great family night out involving highly talented gymnasts, dancers and acrobats from all over the world and consists of two halves of around 45 minutes and a 15 minute interval. The show is fast, energetic and full of life with great music to sing along to and plenty of comedy in it too. The stunts that are performed are breath taking with some involving fire. In general audience participation is encouraged in the show.
There is also a Pirates Reloaded version which tells the same story but with some bad language and fewer clothes! The reloaded version does not include a meal but the punch is free all evening. The family version takes place every evening from Wednesday to Saturday with some other performances in the high season whilst the reloaded version is held every Friday night and Mondays and Wednesdays in high season.
It is a very good idea to book in advance especially in summer when there is lots of demand and queues can be quite long. Also you get a cheaper price when booking in advance than on the night.
There is a VIP ticket which is obviously more expensive than the other tickets but includes a complimentary drink on arrival, a small bottle of wine, a souvenir program and you get to meet and chat to the cast.
