    Hi,
    Just wondering if anyone had any speculation whether the mutiny bay pirate shows may ever return?

    I noticed on my recent visit the courtyard area has closed the food outlet contained inside and the stage where actors performed pirate shows has now gone.

    I remember enjoying the shows there a few years ago, sad to see it’s all closed.
    I do hope it'll return one day.
    Looking on YouTube it was called;
    “The kidnapping of lady Victoria sponge”

    The problem with the show (and, I suspect the reason why it was axed) was that it was never as spectacular as the pirate stunt show at Legoland.

    If a show not being as good as something somewhere else is worth cancelling it, then nearly every show would be cancelled everywhere. The Legoland and Alton Towers shows were completely different really.

    The pirate show was very good for what it was and guests liked it, if they wanted it to grow and get better then cancelling it wasn't the way forward.

    The one reason it was cancelled was to cut costs.

    Personally, I liked it, but was usually the only one watching it. At best I never saw a crowd of more than half a dozen.

    to be fair to FL, I was there last year on a super quiet day, and they did the whole show for like 8 people.There were literally more actors etc than there were crowd members
