The Sirens of TI Pirate Show at Treasure Island in Las Vegas

Updated on November 5, 2010

The crappy pirate show is gone, long live Sirens of TI

Remember Robert De Niro's little speech at the end of Casino, where he explains about the new junk bond-financed casino's using cardboard pirates to distract the kids while their parents blew their college funds? Well, the cardboard pirates he was referring to was the old Battle of Buccaneer Bay pirate show that used to run in front of Treasure Island at the top of the main Las Vegas Strip. The new show is a lot more sultry and aimed at adults, although since it's right out in front of the hotel and features lots of pyrotechnics and fire it's enjoyable for the whole family. Don't worry, there's nothing too objectionable, just scantily clad women.

The man who created the new Sirens of TI show also happens to be the director of High School Musical, Kenny Ortega. I don't care for High School Musical, but the new Treasure Island show isn't bad. As far as free shows on The Strip go, it's second only to the fountains in front of the Bellagio in my book. It definitely outshines the volcano at the Mirage.

When is the Sirens of TI show at Treasure Island?

The Sirens of TI show happens 4 times a day as long as the weather is nice. The times are 5:30, 7:00, 8:30, and 10:00. As I stated, the show is free, and there are plenty of places to watch it. Lots of people will line up on the sidewalk in front of Treasure Island. I call them Vegas amateurs. It's less crowded on the other side of the street, but there's a horrible septic smell in that area in front of Palazzo. Instead, walk up the sidewalk that leads to Palazzo. There's lots of railing space, you're up high enough to see over everyone else who is standing in front, and you can still feel the heat from the pyrotechnics even though it's across the strip. Nobody really cares if you loiter there. Las Vegas is all about loitering.

This show isn't just about fire and explosions and fireworks, although there is plenty of that. There are also some pretty impressive stunts including high dives.
