The six Knights will perform tests of skill and ultimately there will be a final jousting.

Once one of them is knocked to the ground, the battle becomes one-on-one involving clashing steel swords and maces – and many other Medieval weapons!

The King has summoned six knights of the realm to compete, joust and combat each other to become the winner. Knights on horseback joust in the center of the arena and some intense sword fighting ensues, until one knight is crowned the victorious.

You’ll be served a banquet fit for a king by Serfs and Wenches. In true Medieval fashion, there’s no silverware during this feast. So be prepared to use your fingers to eat food including spare ribs, roast chicken and pastries.
