Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament – Atlanta

Medieval Times

This evening my two younger sons and I had the opportunity to visit the Atlanta Medieval Times which is located in Lawrenceville off of Sugarloaf Parkway. I have heard mixed views on Medieval Times so I decided to attend and  form my own opinion. The gates were scheduled to open 75 minutes before the show which was great for me because I was being accompanied by my two younger sons ages 10 soon to turn 11 on next Saturday and my 7-year-old. Upon arrival the kids began to get excited when they saw the line of fellow anticipating kids waiting to enter the Kings Quarters. The ticket process was smooth and the wait in line wasn’t even five minutes which is perfect when you have two excited young men with you.

As you walk in and provide them with your ticket each group is provided with their table number and the color of their team. We were on the yellow team. Could it have been sheer luck for us because I was wearing a yellow shirt? Who knows. We were provided with crowns to match our teams color and then we took a picture before officially entering. The boys were super excited to join in fellowship with so many other kids patiently awaiting to enter and experience an authentic Medieval Tournament.

The royal court welcomed teams individually and the idea was that you were to boo the other teams but cheer on your team. The boys absolutely loved this part because they booed opposing teams and cheered on ours. The night started with a gorgeous white horse entering the arena performing some amazing maneuvers. The King’s Lord Chancellor introduced all the knights, and all of the knights had the opportunity to parade around and everyone cheered for their Knight. We were on the yellow team so when the boys saw the Yellow Knight they began to cheer him on.  The setting of the  show is in an arena, with seats on all sides differentiated by the Knights colors. We were seated in a side and had a great view. Although the way that the arena is set up I don’t think that there are any bad views. The King also rode in on his horse and made a grand appearance and his royal court went crazy cheering him on and as my two sons stated “It was EPIC”.

During the show we were served our feast which was amazing. I especially loved the way that our server so beautifully stated that our left hand was our fork and our right hand was our knife and our mouth was our spoon. The kids loved eating with their hands. The kids had an opportunity to truly experience what they have only read about in history books and watched on television. Our Serf and he was freaking amazing. I asked him to let me take a picture of him because he was just that good and he was so interactive with my sons.

The kids and I really enjoyed the Knights jousting.  It started with knights going one on one and shattering their lances as they attempted to unseat their adversaries.  The Knights kept unseating their adversaries so we had the opportunity to see them fight on the ground and they began to fight to the “death” with a variety of weapons.  The winner of each round continued until there was only one champion remaining.  The Yellow Knight won the battle and trust me it was long and hard but we continued to cheer and provide our support.  The Yellow Knight was presented with a purple sash and a tiara that he came into the audience to give to one lucky little person. The young princess that was seated on our row, Ms. Addyson Amberson was presented with the sash and tiara. I just had to have a picture of her so I asked her mom and she was so sweet she even had my youngest Mario get in the picture.

Just when we thought that the competition was over our Champion Yellow Knight had to battle the barbarian. The Yellow Knight fought a great fight and he saved the kingdom. The show was amazing and I highly recommend all of my readers to please come out and take a walk in Medieval Times!!!

  1. sooo fun! We have a location here in Orlando that we enjoy going to. The boys really love the show.

  2. I have always wanted to go to Medieval Times but there hasn’t been one where we’ve been vacationing. I did go to a pirate type one with ships and swimming and love it. Great review.
