Going back in time 1000 years, the event includes a two-hour display of chivalry and entertainment reminiscent of feasts put on by Queen Maria Isabella for guests of the royal court. The story traces back to the noble family of that time and is recreated by highly-trained staff and entertainers dedicated to presenting this exciting tale.
The show includes jousting, swordplay, horsemanship and more. Dressed in knight garb, the jousters and their horses put on a magical display of talent and entertainment. The well-cared for horses are also featured in remarkable displays of horsemanship. Additionally, hand-to-hand combat and falconry are featured at the tournament.
However, the venue offers more than a great medieval tournament. The meal itself is an experience. The main dish is roasted chicken, served with buttered corn, herbed potatoes, and tomato bisque soup. Guests are also treated to coffee and two non-alcoholic beverages.
