Old yo ho ho? Um, no
Question: Is the old pirate show ever coming back to Treasure Island? I’m not a big fan of the siren show – Robert from LV
Answer: Probably not, Robert. Hotel representatives have said that the old pirate show, which was very kid-friendly and didn’t feature women in skimpy costumes, doesn’t fit the hotel’s demographic now. But Sirens of TI does feature pirates, so it’s not a bad thing. It’s just different.
