On my last trip to Las Vegas, I went to check out the Tournament of Kings located in Excalibur. This show has been here for a long time and I’ve never really thought of checking it out until my friends had mentioned they wanted to watch guys battle it out. I was happy to oblige.

The setup is simple – each section represents a King’s section (France, Spain, Norway, etc) and you get to cheer for your appointed king. We were sitting in the France section.

I’m not going to give away the storyline, but it was very interactive and fun. You get to cheer, hoot, boo and holler. It’s good family fun and the guys are easy on the eyes. The show follows the story of Merlin, King Arthur and his son inviting different kings to a friendly tournament which includes jousting, sword fighting, weapons (morning stars, etc) and some pyrotechnics. So, if you’re a big nerd like me, you’ll definitely enjoy this part of it as well.

You can watch the show without having the meal but it’s not much of a price difference, so you might as well pay for dinner. Dinner starts with a beverage in a mug (alcoholic beverages are available for an additional price) which they fill up once or twice. First course is tomato soup, not bad for what it is.


My friends ordered Pina Colada and it was pretty strong and a good portion, so you’re definitely getting good value for it.



Dinner is a platter of a whole, small chicken, a biscuit, broccoli and some small spuds. You eat with your hands, so you get the feeling of being pretty medieval. Don’t worry, they give you some wet napkins to clean up. I could barely finish my chicken, because it was a lot and also because I was too busy watching the show.


Dessert is an apple tart which isn’t too sweet and served warm.

We all had a great time watching the show and dinner was good. I’d definitely recommend watching this show if you’re into jousting, weapons and want an interactive experience!
