Spring Break is finally upon us! Do you have plans yet? If you’re in Atlanta and really not trying to travel, perhaps a staycation is in order. Now you need some fun activities for the family to enjoy. I have the perfect place for you to visit! Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament!!
Medieval Times is based upon authentic Medieval history and is the true story of a noble family with documentation dating back to the 11th Century. Medieval Times began with two dinner/ entertainment complexes located in Majorca and Benidorm, Spain. The first North American Castle in Kissimmee, Florida opened in December 1983. Medieval Times’ Castles have since entertained more than 60 million guests.-medievaltimes.com
Last night a couple of friends and I attended the evening show. It was a first time experience for all of us! We were pretty excited! As VIP Royalty guest, we strolled down the red carpet to enter into the grand castle. We were given our VIP lanyards, table numbers, and most importantly our crowns! Inside we explored the 11th century European style castle, eagerly waiting for the door to the arena to open.
Shorty, VIP Royalty were summoned to enter through the doors to find their seats. The arena was huge! We had greats seats, right in front! Our tables were set for a grand feast. Our waiter informed us that we were team blue and we were cheering for the horseman adorned in blue. Booing was in order for all the other armored competitors.
The show started with a beautiful white horse coming out, greeting the audience. Soon we were presented with a warm piece of garlic bread and tomato bisque. We were totally amused at the fact that we were not provided with utensils to eat with. Fun! This is a perfect outing for the kiddos! Finally, they are encouraged to eat with their hands! Lol!
We sipped our delicious Tomato Bisque from a pewter like bowl. Or you could dip your warm bread into the soup if you felt fancy. After a series of amazing acts the King of the Castle declared that dinner was now to be served! At that point all of the servers came running to the tables with covered platters. On these platters were beautiful Roasted Chicken. A half of a Roasted Chicken! It was a lot of chicken! And it was delicious! I was very surprised at how delicious it actually was! Sooooo good! Next came a piece of sweet corn on the cob, then a huge piece of potato. This meal was definitely fit for kings and queens alike!
While we devoured our meals, by hand, the show continued. We were entertained with sword fights, jousting, and battles to the “death”. The audience was so into it and so were we!! The energy in the arena was amazing!!
We ended the feast with dessert. Last night’s selection was a Lemon Pound Cake. The moistest pound cake I have ever had. Whose grandma is in the kitchen making this cake?!?!?! I need to know! The cake was awesome and the perfect ending to this spectacular night.
