Titanic the Experience, the 20,000 square foot exhibit on International Drive is adding a food element to their traditional tour. A dinner show will be held each Friday and Saturday night.
The show will be branded as The Titanic Dinner Event and will include a minimum of 10 actors throughout each evening. The experience will incorporate Capt. E.J. Smith’s retirement party, which was hosted by George and Eleanor Widener of Philadelphia and will take the guests through Titanic’s final moments.
Seating initially will start for 90 people and eventually be set to 200. The Dinner Events start July 2, 2010 and continue on Friday and Saturday nights and eventually to five nights per week.
The Titanic exhibit opened in April 1999 at a different location on International Drive. The owner, G. Michael Harris, has led expeditions to the Titanic wreck site and dove to the sunken remains in submersibles more than eight times.
“I am excited for the future of Titanic and work very hard to protect and share history for future generations,” said Harris. “This will bring an added value and increase our vision of an ever expanding experience. Although there are many Orlando dinner attractions, we are confident that we can deliver first class quality food within the back drop of our exhibit.”
Food service for the show will be provided by Collins Catering & Events. The main course will consist of foods such as roasted sirloin and chicken breast that are very similar to menu items from the Titanic. Beverages include soda, iced tea and coffee after dinner. The show takes place throughout the entire exhibit and performers may be seated at your table for dinner.
“We hope to have the element of food throughout the day, with a lunch, an afternoon tea, and The Dinner Event”, said David Walker, vice president and acting general manager. “We will be patient in this new endeavor and as the world’s economy continues to improve we will be ready to make this a part of the attraction experience every day.
Tickets for The Titanic Dinner Event are $64.95 per adult, $39.95 for each child 6 to 11 years old. Visit titanicdinnerevent.com for more information. Regular tours will be held from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on non-dinner show days, and until 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
