KnightTraining Tonight we stepped into the Middle Ages as my kids were dubbed Knights of the Realm and enjoyed an evening of chivalry, rivalry, and revelry at Medieval Times in Atlanta. Comment on this post for a chance to win four tickets for your family!

Knight Training

This Spring Break, kids between the ages of 5 and 12 are invited to Knight Training, a weapons demonstration by the Medieval Times knights and the Weapons Master. They will learn about the grueling training it takes to become a knight and upon completion of their training, your children will be knighted by His Majesty King Carlos in a group knighting ceremony.

This special training class is only available April 710. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with training at 6:30 p.m., followed by a two hour show complete with jousting, falconry, and a four-course meal. Children must be between the ages of 5 and 12 to participate. Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis for the first 100 kid and is open to both boys and girls. Closed-toe shoes are required to participate. All seats for these shows are just $29.95 with code SBGR. Book online at or over the phone by calling 1-888-WE-JOUST.

Surely You Joust?

{I’m not sure if that’s a bad pun or a sign of how long I’ve been married to my very corny husband.}

Our kids loved knight training, which lasted for 15-20 minutes. I forgot that they needed closed-toe shoes, so my eight-year-old daughter wore mine. They enjoyed the chance to wield swords and I appreciated the promise required of them not to use their new skills on anyone else. Heh heh.

My kids should be hoarse tomorrow from cheering for our side and booing for the other. Both girls caught flowers from our knight—the Black and White Knight—who ultimately won the tournament. We’re studying Medieval history this year in our Classical Conversations Foundations program, which made it even more exciting for the kids. My eight-year-old daughter told me that she wants to work at Medieval Times someday and serve food “or be a princess!”
