Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show Announced for Panama City Beach, Florida

February 12, 2024

Dolly Parton is bringing the swashbuckling excitement of her Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show to the Florida Panhandle in spring 2025. Construction already has begun to build a new venue for the popular dinner show concept at Pier Park in Panama City Beach.

“How exciting that we’re breaking ground for my Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show in Panama City Beach,” Dolly said, “My Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show has been a huge success in Myrtle Beach, S.C., and in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and I knew that Panama City Beach was the perfect spot to open our third location. When we open next spring (2025), there will be pirates, mermaids, exciting acrobatics, pyrotechnics, and even a few songs that I wrote — it’s a show everyone in the family is going to love. Everyone knows I dream big, so we are definitely going ‘overboard’ with the details as we get started!”

More than 400 jobs will be created during the construction process over the next year. At the construction site, more than 585 tons of steel, a total of 2,400 cubic yards of concrete and more than 44,000 cubic yards of import fill material will be used in the dinner show venue’s construction.

When completed, the 60,000 square foot indoor theater will have more than 1000 seats. Guests will be treated to a dinner and show where the Crimson and Sapphire pirates battle on deck, in the water of the 15-foot-deep lagoon, and in the “sky” above the two full-sized pirate ships that serve as the swashbuckling stage for adventure, excitement and fun for everyone. When the new dinner show opens, it will employ 300 people, and an extensive nationwide talent search will begin in mid-2024 for the cast. The total cost for the project is estimated at $60 million.

More information on the Pirates Voyage experiences in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee is available on our website.
