First: I called someone a wench. She gave me permission to and still served me food. It felt good.
Second: I drank my soup from a bowl, pulled apart roasted chicken with my fingers and had the option to wipe my greasy hands on the person sitting next to me. It felt good.
Third: I booed at the opposing knight when he entered the arena and screamed like a maniac for my team's knight, all while waving a red flag back and forth. It felt good.
I was a bad, bad girl the other night. But, I make no apologies.
Let's be clear– this is not my normal display of public behavior. I do not exercise these type of manners while dining. I was simply a product of my environment, and for once I was not ashamed at what others thought of me.
I was actually going with the crowd instead of against it. It felt really good.
I owe my 11th century adventures to a VIP night at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament located at 7000 Arundel Mills Circle Hanover, MD 21076. Local media was invited to witness the premiere of a new show including:
- New story line
- New production & lighting
- New choreography & battle scenes
- New costumes & new horse dressage elements
- New musical score
- New upgraded menu *New Vegetarian meal
It was rather difficult to hear over the roar of the crowd that gathered outside the castle doors. We were all decked in crowns bearing a color or colors matching the section where our seats were located. Once inside, the excitement filled the room.
It was my first visit to Medieval Times. In short, the show can be defined as: "two- and four-legged performers with an utensil-free meal serviced in a castle-inspired arena". There were exciting elements such as choreographed battles, jousting, a musical score, bright costumes and beautiful horses.Of course there was food, too. Here's what was on the menu:
The most notable change happened at the beginning. A Liberty Horse opened the show...alone. There was no rider. The horse performed a jump without the use of a harness or the help of a human. I thought this was pretty cool.
Overall, we all had a wonderful time.What's not to love about an event where you can scream and eat as messy as you want, all while being a spectator during a battle?
Tickets for the event cost $56.95 for adults and $35.95 for children 12 & under. For more information, visit medievaltimes.com or call 1-888-935-6878.
My family and I received complimentary tickets to attend this show. The opinions and views are my own.
