If you have never been to Medieval Times, you are missing out. I didn't know what to expect when we first arrived. We were assigned a table number, and because we are always so early to events, we spent the next hour or so walking around and looking at all the different exhibits and items on display.My daughter was very anxious to see the princess (as was I, if I'm being honest here!)
The show started off with a backstory: the king's son had been captured. While we were watching the opening sequence, we were served a delicious tomato soup and beverage of our choice by our lowly but friendly serf.
One of my favorite moments of the show was when the king entered on horseback to greet the knights. Each section of the arena was assigned to a specific knight. The red and yellow knight at the bottom of the picture was our brave knight. I think he did a wonderful job in the action sequences, but I could be a bit biased because he was our hero. :)
There was a very majestic march of the knights on horseback before the tournament commenced. While we watched, we were served a large piece of chicken, a rib, a garlic-covered potato wedge, and for dessert, a fluffy pastry. The food was so delicious!
My daughter's favorite part of the show was watching the horse do "ballet." I never imagined that a horse could move the way this beautiful creature did. It was one of the most incredible things that I have ever witnessed.
Here's the brave red and yellow knight battling against the evil green knight. You can see from the screen that was raised and lowered throughout the show that audience safety was taken very seriously. There were broken jousting sticks and sparks flying from the swords periodically throughout the show. I won't even get into the slobbery horses.
