It is hard to imagine a more appropriate show for the Excalibur Hotel than The Tournament of Kings Show. The Medieval themed show features various competitions including jousting, sword fighting, and a horse race.
Each seating section in the arena is represented by one of the performing Kings, whom you are encouraged to root for.
The Internet Buzz is strongly favorable for the show, and mostly favorable for the dinner. The Tomato Soup gets rave reviews.
Don't think this show is just for families with children...oh no as this show will bring out the kid in all of us grown ups as well! Horses, jousting, wenches, dancing maidens, medieval garb, and delicious food how can you go wrong? Three course meal which is really good, juicy cornish game hen! This is a small scale version of "Medieval Times"
Dinner is a delicious three course meal. Tomato soup, cornish hen, broccoli, potatoes and a biscuit. Everything was really tasty except the biscuit. (just needed a little butter) And for dessert, three little apple raisin pastries.
The acting was cheesy, but so much fun. The sword play was surprisingly fast and exciting. The tournament games were fun. The wenches dancing around and acting as cheerleaders for the kings were a particularly good touch.
Although this is a similar show to Medieval Times, the entertainment factor and level of professionalism from the performers far exceeded that of Medieval Times.
The food was much better than I expected. - the tomato soup was probably the better part of the meal. I don't even LIKE tomato soup and I actually finished mine off.
The best part is the cheering and jeering from the audience for your king. Great entertainment for children. A kid friendly show in Vegas.
The show is in a oval arena with sections labeled for different countries. Where you are seated is the country for whose King you root for.
I was quite surprised by the various kings' riding skills. They were galloping around, throwing spears, fighting with swords. Impressive.
