    I am considering redeeming for the Tournament of Kings show. Would love some feedback on how this was.. It seems to have such a low LP to redeem. Considering it includes a dinner. But also while reading the description I am not sure I understand what this means. "Ticket includes dinner. Discount eligible on entertainment portion of the ticket." If you have redeemed this offer recently would love some feedback, on exactly what you get. Thanks so much.

    I saw the show and enjoyed it. It is kiddish of course but entertaining and its neat to see horses and the like.

    the food was tomato soup cornish hen I believe brocolli and potatoes. no silverware but its ok like that. You can order cocktails but you pay for them.

    You cheer for your team and boo for the bad guys so thats fun as well. Dont know if I would pay full price for it but for a myvegas deal you cant beat it. worst case, you get a free meal.

    I believe that you can get a discount if you waive the dinner. (about $14.00, according to the website)

    The dinner isn't that much, but it will "tide you over" during the show.

    I took my son when he was 10 (or younger). He wouldn't touch the Cornish Game Hen, contending that it "looks like a baby". He did drink the tomato soup.

    We had a good time . . .

    We purchased the reward last year and again this year as we failed to use it. We are planning on trying it out on our September trip. I know they emphasize "eating with your fingers," but would it be advisable for my wife and I to bring two sets of plastic tableware?

    I can't remember if they provided utensils or not, everything could be "finger food". Have your wife carry a couple of sets in her purse.

    However, looking at the Vegan menu, it would seem that they would have to provide utensils.

    Served with Steamed Broccoli"

    They do not give utensils. Everything easily eaten with hands. There was a child sitting next to me and he was served chicken strips instead of the Cornish hen. I have been twice. Once several years ago and the last time this past April. I thought it was ho humm the first time. Don't know if they changed it or my expectations were lowered from before, but I really did enjoy it in April. The hen was a little dry - had I known they served chicken strips to kids I would have asked for the strips for me.

    If you enjoy the Ren Faire you will love it! We did this several years ago and it was a blast. The frequent trips by the Wine Wench (do they still include wine?) made it all the better.

    IIRC, they did have those napkin-wrapped plastic flatware sets on request.

    I redeemed this during a trip in 2015. It was entertaining enough but I would not consider doing it again or paying for it.

    We went on a weeknight and it was about 40% full. There were a lot of kids. The show itself was entertaining mostly because the riders and horses were extremely skilled. It was also impressive to think that this takes place under a casino in the middle of the desert.

    The food was poor. A full cornish hen, tomato soup, broccoli, and maybe potatoes. I picked at it and my girlfriend didn't touch it. It didn't seem very clean.

    The arena also smells pretty bad (as does all of Excalibur). There are a lot of pyrotechnics which was surprising but definitely kept you awake.

    If you have kids, it's not a bad show but the pyro could frighten them. As a free reward on myVegas, give it shot if you have nothing better to do.

    I did that dinner show on my first visit to Vegas in 2007. It's a lot of fun if you like stuff like Renaissance Faires and Medieval Times. The storyline is based on King Arthur (of course, following the casino's theme) and our section's knight was Mordred who came out with a flamethrower, which was pretty cool. We went nuts cheering for him, which all the other sections seemed to think was strange, because he's the villain, but, hey, we were in the moment, man.
