Owner description: Surrender to an age of bravery and honor and witness epic battles of steel and steed during our tournament spectacular. From ringside seats, discover a feast for the eyes and appetite. An evening of enchantment and excitement for all ages. Guests are taken back in time and encouraged to cheer for one of six "Knights of the Realm," named after historic regions of medieval Spain, while feasting on a four-course banquet served in true medieval, pre-silverware fashion. The newest production features amazing lighting, costumes, choreography, exciting battle scenes, falconry, new horse dressage elements and a fresh musical score by the world renowned composer Daniel May.

My boyfriend and I got a BOGO deal for my birthday (sign up online to get a coupon good for your whole birth month) so decided we would do this (it was out of our budget otherwise). The food was really, REALLY good and service was great. We really enjoyed the show, but I think you have to get into it (don't just sit there like a clump of dirt). It is a bit hokey, but we love that kind of stuff.
The only thing we didn't like was that the photographer inside the arena was badly timed. We missed who a character was in the storyline because she was taking our picture. very distracting.
They do take a couple of professional pictures, but wait until the end to purchase. All of the knights and performers came out at the end for pictures and autographs (free of charge). We almost bought our picture with the princess, but waited and ended up getting our picture with her on my camera for free!
The performers are great and don't take themselves too seriously (they know this is a little cheesy). It was really fun to talk with them after the show.
Go early to get a better seat. We were there before the doors open and were in the second row.
Overall we had a great time. Not sure if we will go again, because we figure it won't be too different, but you never know!

I would like to say,my wife and i had a wonderful time at the castle. It was my first time and my wife's second. it was reasonably priced timely and well run. It provides entertainment for all ages. I would recommend this for all and would go again.

Thank You all

My husband and I were preparing ourselves to tough it through another kid show but it honestly ; this really isn't that bad!. The ticket will say arrive by 5 pm, however I recommend arriving by 4:30 because you will get a better seat assignment. They will not give it to you when you book- you have to show up. The arena is not that big only about 7 rows high so if you have good vision - even a bad seat is not a really bad seat. Once you are inside you will have to wait until 6 pm to be seated in the arena so that hour and a half is spent in a holding area specifically designed to suck all the remaining money out of your pocket. There are even people selling time shares offering coupons and medieval bucks if you will come out to one of their presentations the following day. I would not recommend the dungeon, it is an additional $2 and totally not worth it, it is literally the length of a large buffet table, you turn the corner and you are looking at the exit. Don’t waste your money. There are people selling swords and princess costumes and pretty much everything lights up. The only seating is near the two bars where they serve adult & kiddie beverages (for additional cost). Dinner is a tomato soup, garlic bread, half a chicken, a BBQ spare rib and random desert (we had apple turnovers). They offer for additional charge alcoholic beverages. Once everyone is seated they do start dinner service almost immediately. Your server will ask you for a tip- that is also not included in the price of admission.
The show was nice the knights jousted and performed tricks on the horses and also fought with swords and other medieval weaponry. You are assigned a team to root for and you are free to boo all other teams in the realm. The kids really enjoyed it if you are okay with the violence I would say kids age 5 and up are a good audience. Only because they speak in “old” English and some younger children may not be able to follow it, my three year old struggled a bit trying to follow the kings instructions and they encourage crown participation so will be distracting to a very young child.
The command of the animals and stunts are great! The tickets are pricey but wait for a 2 for 1 then buy. There are always coupon codes out there.
All in all it is a nice show we got out of there just before 9pm so it will take the rest of the evening. If you relax and get into it you and your group can have a really good time, my kids loved it!
Happy Travels!

Great entertainment. The horses are incredible, the knights are more than capable horsemen, the food was surprisingly very good, no utensils are given or can be used. Your right hand is your fork, your left hand is your knife, it is based on medieval times. Drinks are pricey.

The performance and command of animals is spectacular. Great choreography. Tickets seem pricey but you can find discounts on web and in the coupon books abundant in the area. Even with discount the cost may seem pricey for dinner. Remember this is a dinner show! Food was abundant and that ticket price covers food and entertainment. Maintaining the facility, the props, the volume of animals, actors and staff has to be exorbitant. As for ways to save money -- When ordering drinks they try to sell you an overpriced special souvenir glass. If you order a drink without the "special" glass, you get a nice plastic tumbler with 3D pics on it. A great souvenir without the price tag! They take several photos and try to sell them all to you at different intervals. Be patient before buying! All photos are available for purchase throughout the evening. So you can pick the best and leave the rest! Tip well! Shame on those who throw a couple ones down on table. The servers do a great job and deserve an appropriate tip! One huge source of irritation, as you enter the 'castle' someone flashes medieval money at you telling you are entitled to $10. She takes these coupons to a counter. There the plastic scam people try luring you into scheduling condo sales presentations by offering you terrific seats at other shows for free or at steep discounts. The catch is you have to attend their presentations, waste a full day of your vacation being hassled to buy property you may not want or can't afford. If you don't bite, that medieval money magically disappears! People of S. Carolina, don't be offended. We like the area but not enough to sell our farm! If we change our mind, we know how to invest or purchase in property. Maybe we will come a calling! I also think the carnations presented to audience by winning knights should be nixed. So many little girls were anxious for an opportunity to receive them. Seems most of these actors preferred the more mature ladies (mature in early 20s)! Occasionally a toddler or a token grandma received a flower. Flowers for grandma, nice gesture. Toddler, Really? Like a baby knows what is up! There were a number of little girls 8-16 who probably felt heart broken. Just an observation here. . . . audience is paying a lot to be satisfied throughout the entertainment!
Overall, the show was thrilling and entertaining -- enjoyed by our whole family.
