Venue Information

In 1966 Pirates World, an 87 acre buccaneer themed park, opened in Dania, Florida, on the north side of Sheridan Street, east of US 1. The park, developed by Recreation Corporation of America, had only skin deep theming but it offered some great rides.

Pirates World had been successful enough in its early years, but then, in 1971, Walt Disney World opened and Florida tourism changed forever. Compared to the Magic Kingdom, Pirates World began to look quaint and old fashioned , and dangerous, with concert problems developing a not entirely accurate bad reputation. By 1973 it was in bankruptcy. In 1975 it was closed.

In 1978 a biblical theme park was to have been developed on the site, but that shortly fell through. The land was sold, zoned residential, and the Watermark condominiums were built over the last traces of the park. Like the buccaneers before them, Pirates World was history.
