Treasure Island, known as TI, is one of the older hotels on the Las Vegas strip. The ‘pirate’ theme is evident in the architecture and at the front of the hotel there is a mini pirate scene with tethered walkways and mock sailing ships. This used to be home to a free “Sirens of TI” pirate show, where scantily clad performers staged a “battle” as the ships moved (pictured below). Sadly the show was axed in 2013 and part of the ‘siren’s cove’ has now been replaced with a weird looking shopping centre.
Inside TI, we really enjoyed Cirque du Soleil’s Mystère in the indoor theatre. The acrobatic feats are breathtaking and the story is well told in the music and movement. The pre-show warm up man was also very funny as he moved amongst the audience and directed people to the wrong seats. It’s also one of the cheaper Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas: Mystère Best Priced Tickets.
Like all hotels on the strip, there are a number of themed bars inside Treasure Island to enjoy, but now that the Sirens of TI show no longer takes place, it feels a bit like the unique attraction that made the hotel stand out has been removed. A sad loss. There is however a new attraction at TI based around the Avengers. It describes itself as an ‘immersive’ experience where you are invited into the Avengers training station. Adult tickets cost $34 (2016 prices)
