Treasure Island (also known as simply “TI”) is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip. This hotel & casino boasts some 2,664 rooms, 220 suites, and is connected by tram to The Mirage as well as pedestrian bridge to the Fashion Show Mall shopping center.
The resort opened with the free “Buccaneer Bay” show in a large man-made lake fronting the resort along the Las Vegas Strip. Presented several times nightly with a large cast of stunt performers, the show depicted the landing and subsequent sacking of a Caribbean village by pirates, serving to attract gamblers from the strip and into the casino after each show in the same fashion as its predecessor, the Wynn-conceived volcano fronting The Mirage casino. Notable special effects included a full-scale, manned pirate ship that sailed nearly the full width of the property, a gas-fired “powder magazine” explosion, pyrotechnics, and the sinking to the bottom of the sailing ship “Brittania” along with its captain.
In 2003, “Buccaneer Bay” was replaced with “Sirens’ Cove” and the new show, “The Sirens of TI” utilizing many of the technical elements of its predecessor. The live, free show was intended to appeal more to adults by including singing, dancing, audio-visual effects, bare-chested pirates and attractive women in the large outdoor show produced by Kenny Ortega.
Treasure Island is also home to Cirque du Soleil’s Mystère, which revolutionized stage shows on the Las Vegas Strip and introduced the entertainment style of Franco Dragone. The show opened in 1993 as the original Cirque du Soleil production in Las Vegas. Mystère has been voted nine times as the best production show in the city by the Las Vegas Review Journal reader’s poll. The hotel has received the AAA Four Diamond rating each year since 1999. While the hotel has gone from a purely kid-friendly theme to more adult friendly with the recent inclusion of a party bar & nightclub, Treasure Island has a lot to offer.
