A visitor attraction offering guests the opportunity to "live as Pirates" is set to launch in the Dutch capital city Amsterdam in 2020.

Rather than utilise technologies to create a themed experience in a single location, The Pirates Experience is a fully-immersive day and night adventure which takes place on a pirate-themed sailing ship accommodating 27 guests at a time.

An interactive, collaborative experience, the journey will see guests dress as pirates before boarding and sailing off on the ship. During the trip, guests will eat authentic pirate food, sing pirate songs, build a campsite and bury and dig a treasure chest.

Guests will then share their "loot" with the crew, celebrate over a dinner and finally turn in for the night aboard the ship.

The Pirates Experience will be owned and operated by Amusement Hub, a company created and directed by Luca Liboa.

Since conceiving the idea of The Pirates Experience in March 2016, Liboa has been fine-tuning the concept, while growing a “tribe” of entertainment and amusement specialists to bring the experience to life.

"Imagine wearing old pirate clothes, boarding a pirate ship and sailing for an unforgettable journey," Liboa said.

"Technologies, such as VR and augmented reality can at times isolate guests behind goggles and mobiles.

"Instead, the Pirates Experience is rooted in social dynamics typical of sailing and of pirate life – of human nature. Pulling ropes together, sharing bread and meals and singing along create a powerful sense of belonging. It makes guests experience a sense of well-being and create long-lasting memories.

"It will be a real adventure – no augmented reality, no VR, no special effects – only real emotions."

Amusement Hub is currently developing a number of other new concepts – such as The Bedouin Experience and themed experiences based on the Great Gatsby, Sherlock Holmes and Arabian Nights.
