For kids who just can’t get enough Jack Sparrow–like misbehavior, there’s this high-energy eye-popper, set on an 18th-century galleon amid a 300,000-gallon lagoon—the arena is the most spectacular of all the Orlando dinnertainments. Expect a circus of rapier duels, rope swinging (lots of it), trampolining, singing, and arrrghing. Although the show provides lots of opportunity for participation (each of six sections roots for its assigned buccaneer, kids get onstage), it treats female characters like sexy livestock. That may account for why its most devoted demographic appears to be 12-year-old boys. Production values are fairly high. Buying online yields discounts of $5 a ticket, but many of the free brochures dispensed around town are good for as much as $15 off.
