If you can’t get enough Pirates of the Caribbean in your life — we know the feeling.
Whether it’s the first ride you swiftly walk to in Disney World and Disneyland, a comforting movie you cozy up to on a weekend or anything in between — Pirates has certainly gained itself a cult following. A new Pirates of the Caribbean experience is coming soon, but not where you might think!
Did you know that part of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies were filmed in Wallilabou, St. Vincent and the Grenadines? It’s true — and that’s exactly why a Pirates-themed experience is being built there!
According to the St. Vincent Times, “Tourists and locals alike are expected to get a sense of the set used by Captain Jack Sparrow in the iconic Pirates of the Caribbean film, which was shot in Wallilabou, St Vincent, by 2025.”
This new experience is expected to provide a “significant boost” to the island, per St. Vincent’s Minister of Tourism, Carlos James. Construction is slated to begin at some point in 2024.
James shared, “We are looking at scouting lands closest to the beach to accommodate the state-of-the-art theme park, which will include a restaurant, pool, and more. This year, we will also explore and [conceptualize] designs for a Pirates of the Caribbean-themed park at Wallilabou. It is important that we look at how we can further develop our tourism product offering. We have to ensure that we have all of the right services and sites that meet quality standards to ensure that people who come to the destination can really see the true benefit of our product.”
The theme park will incorporate design aspects from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and will include “a state-of-the-art themed park, restaurant, a full-on area, a pool, and, naturally, beach access for persons coming by sea.” We don’t know about you, but we might be booking a trip to St. Vincent in the near future!
