You’ll enter through grottos and rooms full of treasure and skeletons of unfortunate pirates who have passed with greed protecting their gold. Shortly after, you’ll begin to see the port on your barge boat and how it’s been taken over by the pirates themselves. As you voyage between two ships battling each other with cannons, there is a chance you may splashed by the water. Entering further into the port, you’ll see the village has been set on fire, and lots of chaos is being endured. Between auctions of goods and the villagers fighting back the pirates be sure to keep an eye out for Captain Jack Sparrow.

Captain Jack Sparrow can be spotted twice in the famous Pirates of The Caribbean attraction. Of course, he has found himself in trouble while trying to get the most treasure out of the whole crew, so he quickly makes an escape. Towards the end of the ride, you will pass the not-so-lucky prisoners in jail as they beg a puppy to bring them the keys to escape their fate. At the same time, you’ll see a successful Jack Sparrow enjoying all of his newfound riches in a room filled with treasure galore.
