Pirates of the Caribbean

“Dead men tell no tales...”As a ghostly voice echoes through the dark, underground grottos and waterway the specter of Davy Jones appears. “Ah, but they do tell tales...” he says in reply, inviting all those “brave or fool enough to face a pirate’s curse...” to continue on their voyage.

Just ahead, guests will find a Spanish seaport town under siege by a heavily armed galleon. It’s the Wicked Wench, commanded by Captain Barbossa. He and his men have put the torch to the town and subjected the local magistrate to a dunking in the well. They’re in search of their shipmate, Captain Jack Sparrow, and the location of the town’s treasure vault.

Captain Jack, temporarily abandoning the mantle of command, has struck out on his own to find the treasure. He successfully eludes his fellow pirates and finally succeeds in stealing a glimpse of a treasure map in the hands of a drunken buccaneer.

And so, after a night of revelry and looting, we find Captain Jack victorious, enthroned in a vault full of gold and jewels, enjoying a drink and verse or two of the attraction’s famous theme song and intoning “Drink up, lads, there is treasure enough for all!”
