@MedievalTimes Dinner & Tournament Atlanta Review & #Giveaway @usfg

*I received the product in this post for free for purposes of review and sharing.  All opinions are my own.

Check it Out!  I recently got to visit the Medieval Times Atlanta location via US Family Guide and I am super excited to be able to share my experience with you and offer up an awesome giveaway for all my local readers!  

This was my first ever visit to Medieval Times.  I have heard many things about the experience and was very intrigued.  I discovered that the nearest location to my home is only 20 minutes away.  When we arrived we were greeted and escorted to the ticket line. I could tell right away this was going to be entertaining!

Within moments of entering the Castle I learned that there is more to Medieval Times than just the show in the ring.  It's all about the whole experience.  The ambiance of the whole place is really quite amazing and for me it started with the largest most beautiful fireplace I have ever seen.  

Being as it is December there was Christmas decor everywhere.  There is so much to see before even entering the arena area, which totally surprised me.  Aside from that amazing fireplace, there are souvenier shops, open areas and drinks are available.  

For this trip I took my fab friend with me and soon learned we had the Royalty package which gave us VIP treatment!  We had really great seats and could see all of the massive arena well.  This arena by the way is filled with about 4,455 cubic feet of sand, which is equivalent to about 10 dump truck loads!  That's how huge it is.  Once settled in, the show started without delay.  
At Medieval Times Six armor clad Knights on horses seek the title of Champion.  To achieve this title they must battle with lance and shields. The show is entertaining, engaging and fun!  You could feel the excitement of the Knights and the horses.

The Knights perform with real metal weapons and wear atuhentic armor. During the battle scenes, the Knights use real titanium swords that create sparks.  Every shield has to be repainted after each show which is why all Knights begin their training as Squires.  They must learn about weaponry, horse care and sword fighting.  This is super important beause when jousting, the Knights charge at speeds of approximately 15 to 20 miles per hour and reach an impact velocity speed of about 30 to 40 hours per hour!  Wow!

Medieval Times is the #1 breeder of pure Spanish horses in North America.  Each year 25 foals are born at their Chapel Creek Ranch and they spend two years in training.  After about 15 to 20 years of performing they enjoy retirement at the ranch.  These are some amazingly beautiful horses and so trained. They dance and perform as equals to the humans.  

Each table at the castle has it's own "squire" or waiter so you get amazing service.  The menu is the same for everyone and as you enjoy the show, your squire delivers each item.  Every year Medieval times serves up 125, 000 gallons of soup and 400,000 gallons of Pepsi are consumed.  The food was great!  More than plenty to fill a body up and that pound cake was amazeballs!

These are all the goodies I brought home along with a doggie bag as there was so much food.  
I have to say that I was and am totally impressed with my Medieval Times experience.  From the show to the awesome waitress we had, it all flowed so smoothly and so nicely.
