About the show~
Long live the King! Our liege. Our lord. His majesty, the King, Don Carlos! He bears the scepter and wears the crown! His kingdom thrives while he sits on the throne and they know no harm will come to them. He desires peace, but will stop at nothing to keep his kingdom and family safe.
There's none fairer than the fairest lady in all the realm - Princess Catalina. The King keeps his daughter close because he holds her most dear to his heart. The King would never let harm come to her, nor let her go, until she has chosen the hand of the man she loves. Not one chosen for her.
Introduces the Tournament of Knights, where the King's guests will behold incredible feats of skill and daring performed by the brave champions who hail from every corner of King Don Carlos' realm.
The Royal Falconer performs wonders with his mighty birds of prey. The tournament includes a live flight of the royal falcon, soaring over the heads of the King's guests - an ancient ceremony dating back to time forgotten.
In battle or competition, the best way to unhorse an adversary.Along with the sword, a Knight's lance is his primary offensive weapon. Lances used purely for competition were made to splinter upon impact, reducing the chances of serious injury to opponents during the joust.
Light. Maneuverable. Everything a sword should be.During battle, the Knights used the Espada on horseback or in combination with a shield or other weapon.
A heavy, two-handed sword tailor-made for epic swordfights.Because of its heft, 11th century Knights used the Mandoble on foot, often to deal a final blow to an enemy.
Versatile, but no less deadly. A cross between a battle-axe and a spear, the Alabarda was used to keep enemies at a distance. Should one miss his enemy on the forward stroke, the point on the back of the weapon can be used to stab with a rearward thrust.
Used on horseback or on foot, it's as fearsome as it looks.By swinging the wooden handle, the spiked ball on the end of the chain dealt a devastating blow to an adversary.
Armor-crushing force at your finger tips.The advantage of using a mace in battle comes from the sheer amount of striking force generated by the pointed weight atop its wooden shaft.
The ivy-covered towers of Medieval Times' Dallas Castle add a bit of majesty to the Texas horizon. In regal fashion, this castle boasts nine tree-lined acres complete with a moat filled with schools of live Koi.
As soon as we entered the castle the excitement began!
I took pictures of just about everything I saw..LOL
The ceiling of the castle was neat with all the knights colors and symbols.
The doors to the castle open an hour and 15 minutes before the show starts!
That gives you plenty of time to look around at the different shops and grab some
souvenirs to cheer on your knight for the evening!
We were seated in our section 15 minutes before the show started!
Our knight for the evening was the YELLOW knight!
We had great seats! We were on the 2nd row!
Within minutes of being seated our server came by and introduced himself to us.
His name was ~ Long hair pony tail dude..haha
soon after the intros the lights went out and the show began!
For the entire 2 hours of the show we were entertained!
The Feast was awesome!
The kiddos ate with their fingers and enjoyed it!
Our server was very observant of our needs and refilled our drinks often.
Even the younger ones had a great time!
There was never a dull moment.
I need to find a way to enjoy the show and eat at the same time..LOL
I was taking pictures and videos that I forgot to eat most of the time.
We all had left overs that we brought home:)
The half chicken was HUGE!
My kiddos favorite part of the show was the sword fight and the sparks from the swords
when they hit during the fighting!
My favorite parts were the jousting and the falconer!
Although, our knight was not victorious that night, he still did great!
There was a funny moment when he fell off his horse!
The kiddos liked that too..
I don't think was to be part of the show thou:)
I give Medieval Times a 5 out of 5!
It was entertaining and we had a fun family night!
With our busy schedules it was nice to enjoy each others' company and
catch an exciting show!
I want to say a special thank you to Synthia from Medieval Times for the tickets for my family and I! I hope we can return to the castle again soon!
