'My family and I planned a trip to Myrtle Beach for a couple weeks in August and we stayed at the beautiful Litchfield Beach in Pawley’s Island. We booked a Friday night reservation for Medieval Times and everyone loved it! Our friends from home took their family to Medieval Times last year and encouraged us to purchase the “Kings Royalty Package” that gave us front row seats. The show was amazing! I’m glad we bought the package because my children got VIP treatment the whole night', said Cheryl from Ohio.
When guests arrive, they are seated in a section representing one of the six knights for whom they will be cheering on. The knights are: The Green Knight, The Yellow Knight, The Red Knight, The Red & Yellow Knight, The Blue Knight and The Black & White Knight.
Each valiantly fights for his cause – ridding his world of foes – while riding on Andalusians. The Spanish horses, prized since the 11th century for their humility and ability, take on the weight of a full suit of armor without flinching and while galloping elegantly.
The Andalusians featured at Medieval Times are specifically bred and trained to be the exemplary stars they are in the production, which uses real swords.
Of course, the tournament is heightened in its appeal because of the delicious dinner guests enjoy while viewing the live-action drama. The feast consists of focaccia bread, tomato bisque, oven-roasted chicken, one extraordinarily tasty barbecue rib, a potato seasoned with herbs, an apple strudel and beverages of choice. It is high-energy fun and wonderful eating anyone of any age can enjoy.
CHeryl also said, 'the 30 minute drive is very well worth it, you and your family will be talking about it the entire drive back to Litchfield Resort.'
As a guest of Litchfield Beach Resort, make sure to check out Medieval Times for a dinner show like no other while on vacation here in Myrtle Beach.
