Tournament of Kings Preview

Tournament of Kings Overview

Excitement abounds at the "Tournament of Kings". Take a step back in time with the help of producer Peter Jackson and this original, fun Las Vegas extravaganza. "Tournament of Kings" is an updated version of Jackson's "King Arthur's Tournament". The updated show was developed by his son, Patrick Jackson. The original show, "King Arthur's" had run for over nine years before the adapted version "Tournament of Kings" was developed.

When you go, You can expect to see amazing stunts and dazzling adventure. Stunt riders move from steeds to stage effortlessly. Battles occur right on the stage, dancers perform barefoot, and there is the ultimate quest as a prince hunts for the perfect maiden to make his princess. "Tournament of Kings" also features tumblers, wizards, and plenty of magic to thrill the audience and astound them at the same time.

Tournament of Kings Vegas

Prior to seeing the "Tournament of Kings" show, you will be treated to a meal of baked chicken, side dishes of broccoli, a potato and dinner rolls, and a dessert of puff pastry at Excalibur Hotel. The food can be eaten with your hands, as was done back in medieval times. The entire theme of show, from the pre-meal to the performance keeps the medieval environment going, so you will have a historically friendly experience the entire night.

The theater features upholstered seating, and there is an elevator for disabled guests. The sound, lighting, and ceiling chandeliers add to the medieval ambiance. The cast of "Tournament of Kings" enters through a doorway, which was built to look like a stone castle replete. This set offers plenty of room for sword fights and flame throwing. You will get to see both.

The symphonic music, scored by Scott Rammer, adds to the entire mood as you enjoy dinner at this premier show at the Excalibur on the Las Vegas strip. The merriment is filled with a King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table feast before the festivities and games begin. The games include sword fights, jousting, horse races, and gladiator battles. Audience participation is a must for the success of this show so be prepared to cheer, jeer and boo loudly when you go to see “Tournament of Kings”.

    It's a great way to spend an evening

    The show at the Excalibur hotel in Las Vegas, "The Tournament of Kings" is a live-action dinner show recreating the times of jousting and Knights. It's a great way to spend an evening in Sin City. When you are seated pay attention to your section because it will come into play later in the night. Dinner starts out with tasty tomato soup followed by a Cornish hen, twice-baked potatoes, broccoli, and a roll. The Cornish hen is mouth-watering and tastes better than chicken. The final course, dessert, is a let down though. The actual show is fun filled and a great piece of entertainment. It's corny and cheesy, but the choreography and blocking takes real talent and skill. There's a lot of crowd cheering, chanting and booing that'll keep kids and adults engaged. The actual tournament part is very physical and exciting. And once it's all over you'll spent from all the cheering and clapping and fun you've just had at the Excalibur Tournament of Kings in Las Vegas, Nevada.
