About the Show
Join the King at the castle in Atlanta where you will watch as six brave knights from across the king's realm come together to compete in a tournament, using all of their strength and skill in hopes of gaining the title of tournament champion and winning the hand of the beautiful Princess Catalina. Sparks fly as they compete in jousting, have a sword fight, demonstrate hand-to-hand combat, and perform other acts of bravery and valor.
Guests are seated in color-coded sections that correspond to one of the knights, so you can participate in the show by cheering your champion on to victory. The fast-paced action of the tournament combines with timeless stories of romance and castle intrigue to create a show the whole family is sure to enjoy. It truly is unique and guests can cheer along for their favorite knight to see if he will be crowned the King Champion at the knight ceremony!
When you arrive at Medieval Times, you’ll be seated under the flag of one of the brave knights competing. Whether you cheer for the Black & White Knight, the Green Knight, the Yellow Knight, The Red Knight, The Red & Yellow Knight, or the Blue Knight, you are bound to have an amazing time.
The Joust Tournament: Cheer for your favorite knight as he competes in a jousting tournament that is sure to thrill and captivate! Jousting was popular in medieval times and includes both the skills needed for horseback riding and cavalry fighting, so it makes for a unique activity.
Weaponry: The clash of steel is sure to be an exciting sound as you watch your favorite knight compete in a variety of weapon-based events. The weapons that are used throughout the show include swords, lances, alabarda, the mace, and of course, a variety of armor. Each tool is crafted for both performance and flair.
Hand-to-hand Combat: The most basic form of combat that there is, there is no better way to test the skills and strength of your favorite knight than through this form.
One of the most gorgeous and intriguing parts of the competition is the horses. The Master of Horse and a team of Pure Spanish horses will demonstrate exemplary equestrian talent during the show. These horses were prized in the middle ages for their splendor. The breeds used at Medieval Times include Andalusians, the quarter horse, and gorgeous Friesians.
Medieval Times is also the proud owner of a small number of the very rare solid black Andalusian horses. Only 5% of all Andalusians have this trait, so they are surely a wonder to be seen up close and personally.
The Life of the Horses
Every horse used at Medieval Times has been raised and trained on the beautiful ranch owned by the company. From a very young age, the horses are taught how to perform and they truly have a solidified purpose. When they are old enough (at age three) to begin appearing in shows, they are moved to the stables at the various Medieval Times castles where they are tended to by the Master of Horses. When the horses have served their knights fully, they are moved back to the ranch that they were born on and live out the rest of their lives happy and well-taken-care-of.
Falconry: The Royal Falconer's beautiful hawks and falcons will soar over the arena and amaze as they show their natural speed and agility.
You will be served a delicious four-course meal as you watch the tournament, all completely cooked by the chef of the king himself. Enjoy a dinner of delicious garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, oven roasted chicken, spare rib, delectable side dishes, coffee and soft drinks, and the castle's specialty pastry for dessert. This medieval time dinner is sure to leave you satisfied. Guests will also be treated to either a non-alcoholic beverage or can purchase spirits. You will eat the royal feast just as nobles in 11th century Spain did – no silverware!
The King’s Vegetarian Meals
This may be middle-age Spain, but the King still has class. Offering vegetarian meals upon request, herbivorous guests can enjoy a spread of hummus, warm pita bread, carrot and celery sticks, three-bean stew with fire-roasted tomato and brown rice, fresh fruit or Italian ice, and two rounds of beverages. If you have special dietary needs, please mention at checkout!
