Save on Any Show At All Nine Castles!

We are so fortunate to have one of the nine Medieval Times North American Castles in our area. This outstanding show featuring chivalry, rivalry, & revelry is truly family entertainment at its finest!

Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament recreates an 11th-century tournament inside their 1100 seat indoor arena where you are the royal guests. Watch Andalusian stallions perform, the King’s own falcon fly and all six knights engage in live jousting and sword fights that maintain the highest quality of action-packed entertainment and safety standards.

The show at the Atlanta castle was updated about two years ago with new, exciting music, beautiful costumes, dramatic lighting, more fighting and of course, more horses! The magnificent stallions are the real stars of the show. The Pure Spanish Horse was prized by medieval royalty for its astonishing strength, agility, and even temperament. Their performance is one of the highlights of the show.

Included in the price of the show is a 4 course, utensil-free meal that is served during the show, so you never feel as though you are waiting. The waiters are terrific! They are very efficient and remain in character, answering every request with "Yes, my Lord", or "as My Lady wishes". The menu includes pureed tomato soup, garlic bread, roasted chicken half, BBQ rib, half a potato, & an apple pastry along with beverages. (A vegetarian option is also available) The portions are large and the kids love eating with their fingers. Don't worry, they even provide warm wet-wipes after the meal to clean up messy hands and faces!

This show provides heart-pounding entertainment, lots of crowd participation as you cheer for your favorite knight, gorgeous horses, brave knights, royal pageantry and a feast "fit for a king"! It’s no wonder it’s rated the #1 Dinner attraction in North America!
