At Medieval Times, ironclad knights clash for the title of King's Champion in front of a wide-eyed audience who peppers the battlefield with cheers and jeers between bites of a four-course dinner. Each two-hour tournament channels the pageantry and spectacle of 11th-century Spain, pitting six competitors against each other inside a spacious, sand-filled arena. A spirited musical score infuses epic onslaughts with an extra dose of tension as adversaries joust atop stallions, deflect ferocious blows, and slice through suits forged of authentic junk mail. Like royal guests centuries ago, spectators bask in the revelry while feasting upon a finger-friendly bill of fare that includes oven-roasted chicken, spare ribs, and a herb-basted potato. To further immerse guests in the fairy tale, Medieval Times encourages each guest to declare their allegiance by cheering loudly or promising to name their firstborn child after a favorite knight.
