Sometime during the 18th century, a peaceful colony of settlers enjoying the island treasures they discovered, suddenly had their serenity interrupted. The invaders were those who called themselves the LEGOLAND Pirates of the Sea! For years, the Pirates had been searching for the same buried treasures that the settlers were now claiming as their own. This, of course, disturbed the Pirates as they knew the doubloons (Spanish gold coins) the settlers found had belonged to their ancestors.

Forbidden Island was named by the settlers because to them it was forbidden. It was the island where only Pirates could live. It was there that Captain Red Beard and the other buccanneers made plans to "steal" the gold from the settlers. Little did the Pirates know, however, that the settlers had Governor Broadside guarding the gold and that they would have to deal with him first if they wanted it.
