Medieval Times Atlanta: Rowdy, messy fun for the whole family

We finally got our chance to visit Medieval Times in metro Atlanta this weekend! Having never been to a "dinner and tournament" before, none of us had any idea what to expect. I was not sure if Amelia would like knights and lances, or if she would be scared, or if she would eat any of the food... I really had no idea. We drove across town with the hope that it would be a fun family night for all thee of us.

It was! Medieval Times was a lot of fun. Amelia threw herself into the role of cheering for our section's knight, the Green Knight. She was initially shy about booing, because she is just a sweet person. But as Mommy and Daddy got into it with some banging and booing ourselves, she loosened up and had a lot of fun with it.

Medieval Times Atlanta is located inside Sugarloaf Mills in Lawrenceville. This holiday season, they are an official drop-off location for Toys For Tots. Now through the end of December, guests to Medieval Times Atlanta shows can deliver a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots upon arrival to the castle to receive a *FREE* Souvenir Upgrade, including cheering banner, commemorative program, and one behind-the-scenes DVD per party. (With the purchase of one ticket; one souvenir upgrade per toy.) 

If you plan to visit Medieval Times, arrive at least 30 minutes early. There will be a line to get in and seating is assigned as you enter. There are knighting ceremonies with the king and trumpet players periodically in the hall, as well as a full bar and various gift shop items to browse.They begin letting each color section into the arena 15 minutes prior to showtime, but your table number and color are assigned at the ticket entry door, so no stampeding to get inside.

Once inside, feel free to loudly yell, pound, boo and cheer while indulging in messy, hands-only fare. It is a good time for all. Children there were of all ages. There are moments of dark and noise and light violence from the tournament, but even the babies and toddlers I saw nearby were not upset or concerned at all. So bring one and all and have a rowdy time!

Note: I received free tickets for my family in exchange for a review and mention of the holiday promotion. However, as always, all opinions about the experience are 100% mine.
