Feel the vibration as hooves pound against the ground, hear the sound of sword clashing with sword, watch falcons soar gracefully and powerfully over your head and inhale the aroma as your meal is set out before you at the Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament in Myrtle Beach. When you attend this unique dinner show, you’ll travel back in time to watch chivalrous knights battle for victory as you enjoy a medieval-style meal of oven-roasted chicken and spare rib.
Six courageous knights compete against each other in a jousting tournament for honor and victory. The Black & White Knight, the Blue Knight, the Red & Yellow Knight, the Green Knight, the Yellow Knight and the Red Knight will take up their weapons and provide the King and his family – and you – with two hours of entertainment reminiscent of the medieval times. You can learn more about the knights and choose your loyalty here.
Swords, lances, maces, bolas and axes are weapons used during this performance. Watch as the six knights master the use of the lance in jousting tournaments and cheer on your favorite competitor. The Green Knight has never been unhorsed in competition before, while the Red & Yellow Knight has risen to fame by his excellent use of the sword. Terror may strike you if the bola or the mace is picked up. The bola’s spiked ball can deliver a devastating blow, while the mace is known for crushing armor.
Throughout the tournament, performances by the Royal Falconer, the Herald of Leone and the Master of Horse will also astonish the audience members. Incredible birds of prey will soar above your head in stunning acts. The Herald of Leone has prepared a presentation with his stallion, specially designed to surprise the king and his guests. The Master of Horse displays excellent horsemanship, unrivaled by any other, with his collection of Pure Spanish Horse stallions.
These horses are some of the most amazing cast members at the Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament. The show raises over 400 horses at the Chapel Creek Ranch in Sanger, Texas, including Quarter Horses, Friesians, Menorcans and the Pure Spanish Horses. The Pure Spanish was the prized horse by medieval royalty, due to its incredible strength, agility and calm character. The horses perform powerful stunts that will take your breath away. Their beauty and strength are undeniably one of the greatest things about the show.
As you watch this incomparable performance, you’ll be feasting on a real medieval meal. Garlic bread and a tomato bisque soup will start you off, before you dig into the oven-roasted chicken and spare rib. An herb-basted potato will make your mouth water, before you finish off with the chef’s choice in pastry. There is also a vegetarian meal available for those who desire one, and select non-alcoholic beverages are also provided to you.
As you feast on the delicious dinner prepared for you, you’ll be hanging onto the edge of your seat as you watch these brave knights climb on the back of their noble steeds and grip tight their lance. Cheer loud for your favorite knight to encourage victory. The tournament will immerse you in an atmosphere full of chivalry, courage, honor and epic battles.
