The pirate ship, permanently harbored in Buccaneer Cove, provides a unique and impressive backdrop and was made by the same company that produces props for Walt Disney World. The pirate ship comes to life after the Buccaneers score a field goal or touchdown. Its loud cannons fire seven times to signal a touchdown and three to announce a field goal. The booming cannons aren’t the only unique sounds featured throughout the stadium. In fact, an animatronic parrot perched on the stern of the pirate ship frequently talks to those passing beneath during Buccaneers games. Controlled by radio remote, it can even pick fans out of the crowd.
