In Buena Park, California, two interactive dinner shows take place right down the street from each other: Pirate’s Dinner Adventure and Medieval Times. If you’re into that sort of thing and find yourself in Orange County, take the Buena Park Challenge and decide between the two. Here’s a rundown on the options, with my roundup of discount tickets included. Choose your own adventure.
Pirate’s Dinner Adventure
Address: 7600 Beach Blvd Buena Park, CA 90620
Pirate’s Dinner Adventure features the requisite swashbuckling swordplay, dynamic duels, special-effects and aerial stunts. You’ll dine and be entertained aboard an authentically replicated 18th-century Spanish galleon anchored in a 250,000-gallon indoor lagoon with night sky lighting. Ships have their own pirate mascots who you can cheer on as they act out their exploits, complete with cannon blasts, pyrotechnics, wit and wizardry. You’ll have an opportunity to interact with the story.
