Visit to Medieval Times Atlanta GA!


One of my favorite parts of getting to visit attractions, is being able to share these great places with my readers. After all, who wouldn't love a trip to a place where all your medieval fantasies come true! Knights fight for true valor, horses dance, and someone in the audience is crowned prince or princess, a wonderful experience, believe me.

We visited on a Monday, New Year's of all days, and we weren't sure how the atmosphere would be. But it was the little one's birthday, and the only day we had free that week, so it worked out splendidly. A big thank you as well to the staff at Medieval Times Atlanta who put things together for us on short notice! This castle is located inside a mall, the strangest place I have ever seen one of their attractions, but it is a busy place and I liked the location.

When we arrived, the first thing I noticed was how accommodating everyone was. We were sent through the line with the King and got our picture taken. But B. the five year old, really wanted her picture taken with the Queen. Without any trouble at all, they let her through the line and allowed her to snap a picture real quick, which absolutely made her night. We only had about 30 minutes to wait, which we spent browsing the gift shop areas and watching the knighting ceremony for the birthday children. Then came the time for us to be ushered inside the majestic castle, and take our seats cheering for the, yellow knight!

The show started and we were brought the first course of our meal, a tomato bisque soup and then shortly after, the toast which tasted amazing dipped in the soup. I will say our serf did a great job, but did not get into it as much as those around us. No coaching for the cheering of the knight, he did his job and did it well, but the extras were just not there.

For the food portion of the show, it would almost be worth the price of the evening just for the food. It is an excellent meal with potatoes, baked chicken, garlic toast, tomato bisque, corn on the cob, and the pastry of the night. Oh, and you also get drink and a coffee! This is a good serving of food and guess what, you get to eat it all with your hands, something that we had to explain to the little one who is always told to use her utensils.

Now on to the main event, the show! I cannot tell you enough how much we enjoyed this performance. It combines the athletic jousting with challenges and games that the knights compete in, as well as the flight of the falcon, and my favorite part, the equine dances. I absolutely love watching the master of the horse put these amazing animals through their paces!

We were a little worried that B would not have as much interest in the two hour long show, after all, she is only five and it might not keep her attention. But there was no need to worry as she sat in almost rapt attention for the whole thing. And not only she did get her picture with the queen, but she also got a rose thrown to her from our knight!

Overall, this is a great dinner show and one that the whole family will enjoy. The attraction is well worth the price and for a Monday night that I thought would be busy, it was not packed at all. If you are ever in the area, I would urge you to take your family here, whether it is a birthday or just a fun night, you can't go wrong.
