Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament Review
The Myrtle Beach Medieval Times
show is a spectacular production inspired by an 11th century feast and tournament. The Medieval Times castle (theater) is located near Freestyle Music Park, directly off of Hwy 501 in Myrtle Beach. Medieval Times encourages guests to arrive 90 minutes prior to show time to experience the extensive gift shop, full-service bar, museum of torture and observe the master falconer and his birds of prey up close. The cast will gladly pose for photos during this time.
When my party and I arrived, we were ushered to the crowning area where we were given our crowns, which signaled the knight we would be cheering on. Our pictures were taken in royal fashion before we entered the Hall of Arms, which is where the aforementioned gift shop, bar, museum or torture and dance area is located. My companions and I decided to tour the museum of torture at this time, which was small, but packed a punch with its medieval devices and historical information. This museum might be a bit frightening to children, but it is an interesting look into medieval society and worth your time.
Entry in to the arena at Medieval Times Myrtle Beach
begins 15 minutes prior to show time. The fun begins at once as sections begin to cheer and boo for their respective knights. I was seated in the green section and cheered for the green knight, of course. The royal action begins right away, with King Phillippe and his daughter-in-law, Princess Leonore presiding over a four-course feast for their guests. The food is delivered right away by waiters, called wenches and serfs, and the feast consists of tomato bisque soup, spare rib, half of a Cornish hen, garlic roll, potato and apple pastry for desert. While dining on the feast, we watched as the knights of Medieval Times competed in the tournament for Battle of Champion. The tournament featured knights astride Andalusian horses competing in games of skill, such as arrow shooting, and tests of courage, like sword fighting and jousting. The action-packed event made cheering for your knight and jeering the other knights a lot of fun. The equestrian displays were also impressive, from the prancing to the dancing.
Notables: The pictures taken prior to show time are delivered mid-show and the guests can purchase them at this time. Another photographer also comes by during the show to photograph your party. This photo is also available for purchase prior to the shows conclusion. A tip is also recommended for the waiters and waitresses that serve you, as this is not included in the price of admission.
