We went to Bucaneer Bay whilst on holiday in Cornwall. My husband went years ago and was very keen for me to 'experience' it too! We went in with our 2 year old daughter.
We were greeted by a lady on reception who explained how it all worked. We had a few moments to wait whilst she checked the pirate was 'in position' (slightly ruined the anticipation as I imagined him adjusting his parrot). We went in and were met by Captain Jack (AKA Calico Jack). He was BRILLIANT. Really great Pirate voice, lots of jokes interweaving the stories. He was so good he could easily have been in the London Dungeon. It took about 45 mins to go round, not a great deal to look at. It must have been a bit rubbish before they employed the pirates, Calico Jack made the whole experience as far as I'm concerned.
My husband went through the 'scary bit' but I didn't really feel our little girl was up to it so I waited in a fairly nondescript corridor for his return. It was quite pricey, £15 for us both with a discount voucher. But the 'real pirate' experience was very funny and he earned every penny as far as we were concerned. Great family fun on a rainy day!
