When was the last time you watched 2 knights joust on horses? Or drank dragon blood soup from a metal bowl- with no spoon? Probably never. But I say it’s an experience you must try! So where can you indulge your need for live renaissance flair? At Medieval Times of course.
When you vacation at a “destination” location, there are plenty of entertainment venues to draw your attention. But I love how Medieval Times combines athleticism, pure showmanship and a great meal! It is an all encompassing entertainment experience. During our stay at Myrtle Beach this year we had the awesome experience of attending a Medieval Times performance.
And that is really what it is. The horses are stunning, the combat is expertly choreographed and even the serving wenches add a dramatic flair. We had the pleasure of cheering on the green knight. And while he did not “win” that night, he stole our hearts (especially our little flower, who caught his flower).
With all the awesome entertainment to watch, it’s almost easy to forget you are there for a meal too. That is until you taste and experience the meal. I say experience because you have to dig right in- no utensils! Tender chicken, huge “medieval french fry” and a sweet apple pastry to end the meal- it was fit for the king for sure!
I do have to say this experience does not come without a price. But remember you are getting a show AND dinner. And that’s why you ate cereal and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches all week right? To splurge on the experience.
But don’t just pay the price at the door. Medieval Times offers some great savings promotions. You can find $ offers from Vacation Myrtle Beach properties, Visit Myrtle Beach Booklets (visitors commision) or even right on the Medieval Times website. Also, the Myrtle Beach location is offering one of my fave kinds of promotions- Kid’s Eat Free! Now thru 9/7/15 Fri-Sun, kids 12 and under eat free with an adult purchase. If you know you will be in a Medieval Times town on your birthday, check out how you can get a free Birthday admission too.
Thanks so much to Medieval Times in Myrtle Beach for hosting my family for the evening. It was a magical experience and will be a wonderful memory. All opinions are my own.
