Family time is important to us, and with the kids getting older, it's getting harder to find things that everyone from the 16 year old to the 4 year old will enjoy. This past weekend, we were provided with tickets to take our family to Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament at the Atlanta castle. It was our first time taking our youngest and I think he was the perfect age to truly enjoy the experience. We arrived early at the castle and let the kids explore. We were able to meet one of the new hawks to the Atlanta castle and her trainer. This was helpful to us because our 4 year old is terrified of birds being close to him. He was able to see the hawk in a safe way and we were able to explain exactly what the hawk would do during the show. This helped him to not be afraid when it came time for the hawk to fly over the audience.
We also let the kids enjoy slushies and my husband and I shared a drink called the Maiden's Kiss. Highly recommend trying this one! Delicious! The slushies helped tie the kids over until our dinnertime and helped pass the time while we waited until showtime.
Once it was time to go in, my 4 year old was amazed by the decor and arena. We found our spots in the Red Knight section and began our adventure.
As always, the show did not disappoint! I love the new show since it has taken away the scary aspects and replaced them with showcasing more of what the amazing horses can do.
Since we did visit Medieval Times with a variety of ages, I've put together a few tips for you so you can get the most out of your experience with children.
*Arrive early to get the most of your experience. Older kids may enjoy visiting the dungeon, for an extra minimal charge. You also may be able to visit with some of the performers and possibly even a hawk! *Consider visiting at the last show of the day. Our show wasn't the last one of the day, but when we have been before, the knights would often come out afterward to visit! * You know what your child likes to eat and not eat. Consider bringing them a snack if they are a picky eater or asking your server for an extra of something in exchange for something your child doesn't like. Our server brought my 4 year old an extra garlic bread since he decided to be in an extra picky mood and that was the only thing he would eat. *Most souvenirs are pricey, but they do bring around little flags to help cheer on your knight for $2. This is probably the most affordable option. *Remember to go to the bathroom before the show starts so you don't miss a minute of the fun! I'd love to hear if you have any other tips to add!
