Hear ye! Hear ye! King Carlos and the court at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament invite the lords and ladies of Atlanta to travel back to the 11th Century as the castle debuts a brand-new show. The new show premiered on July 19 and the launch marks the attraction’s first new program since 2007!
Last Wednesday we were invited to preview this exciting new show at the Atlanta Castle. Almost two years in the making, the new live production delivers even more audience favorites such as live jousting, sword fights, horsemanship and falconry. Guests are taken back in time and encouraged to cheer for one of six Knights of the Realm, named after historic regions of medieval Spain.
In addition to the storyline, the production includes a number of other updated components, including new costumes, theatrical lighting, horse dressage elements, choreography and battle scenes, as well as an entirely new musical score custom-composed for Medieval Times and recorded in Kiev, Ukraine.
“In a sense, we’ve gone back to the basics,” said Leigh Cordner, Medieval Times’ Creative Director. “Guests will see a celebration of the horses along with more action and elements of high drama. The streamlined plot allows more concentration on the action.”
If you have never been to Medieval Times, it’s truly an experience you do NOT want to miss! Once you enter the castle, upon check-in you will receive a table number and a crown sporting the colors of your knight. Once you enter the main area of the castle you will be floored. It’s gorgeous and really makes you travel back in time!
We decided to use our invitation as a family date night and Marlee who had never been was SO amazed. Once we entered she realized that we were going to see real knights and horses, not a movie. She was a great cheerleader for our red and yellow knight and did her fair share of booing for the other knights. The knights interacted with the crowd and ours even threw miss Marlee a flower.
