Excalibur Hotel in Las Vegas
Excalibur Hotel in Las Vegas has entertainment for the family as well as Las Vegas bachelorettes show. Kids will love the Tournament of Kings dinner show, taking you back to the days of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. The Excaliber Hotel looks its best with the lights on at night as shown below.
The Tournament of Kings is an elaborate Medieval production similar to Medieval Times. Horses and riders are beautifully costumed. Seven kings and one evil dragon knight parade out with majestic fanfare. Every seat is a good seat and audiences are invited to participate by cheering for the king or country they represent. For instance, if you're sitting in the Norway section, you would cheer for the Norwegian King as he rides by.
The kings dine with King Arthur at the Round Table, then the gladiator games, jousting and horse races begin. The evil fire wizard, Mordred, interrupts the fun by trying to steal King Arthur's kingdom. A battle ensues and one king dies. The others take it upon themselves to even the score. Every battle tops the previous one until a winner emerges. Dancing maidens, fire-eaters, singers and acrobats are woven into the show.
Audience members eat with their fingers when they aren't banging their fists on the table. No utensils are given. Dinner includes tomato soup (dragon blood), a Cornish hen, steamed broccoli, potato wedges, and a biscuit. Dessert is a tasty apple pastry and soda. Nothing fancy but not bad either. A wet wipe is given after the dinner, but I think they should also provide one before dining. You may want to bring your own antibacterial hand gel. There's nothing like this show anywhere but at the Excalibur Hotel in Las Vegas. Caesar's Palace has the Fall of Atlantis with talking statues and the Mirage has the dolphin habitat but this entertainment at the Excalibur truly matches the hotel theme.
