Here is a Halloween event we have not previously listed: This October, the Pirates Dinner Adventure in Buena Park transforms itself into Vampirates. The combination restaurant-tourist-attraction-theme-park offers a four-course dinner and a frightening two-hour show filled with action-packed stunts and special effects, staged on a Spanish Galleon floating in an artificial lagoon.
The story has guests attending the Treasure Bay's Annual Masquerade Ball, where the scoundrel Captain Sebastian the Black and his crew of Vampire Pirates await, ready to prey upon the unwary. The evening's entertainment begins with a pre-show, during which the audience can drink and mingle, followed by the main show, then dinner. There is a costume contest on weekends, open to all ages.
Reservations are required – at least five hours in advance, preferably 24 hours. Adult admission (over 12) is $59.95. Children 3 through 11 are $36.95, and infants 2 and under are free, when seated on the lap of a parent or guardian (must share a meal).
