What do you get when you cross a bunch of horses with men in tights? Why, a knight of entertainment and chivalry of Medieval proportions! At the behest of the Royal Court, the kids and I were summoned to the Toronto castle as guests of King Don Carlos. This was our third visit to the castle but this time we were fortunate enough to bring friends along with us, none of which have ever had the pleasure of visiting Medieval Times in Toronto.
Not only did our trip to Medieval Times allow us to experience epic battles of steel and steed, we enjoyed displays of equine beauty and grace. The choreographed performances of the magnificent Andalusian horses are, in and of themselves, a spectacle to behold.
The kids also enjoyed watching the royal falcon take flight as it was set free to circulate throughout the arena while onlookers marvelled from below. Throughout these performances, guests are served delicious garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, herb-basted potatoes, the pastry of the Castle, coffee and two rounds of select beverages. The challenge of eating without utensils made it all the more fun for the kids.
Our friends thoroughly enjoyed cheering on our noble knight who battled his way towards King's Champion. My daughter was also the recipient of a flower given to her by our victorious knight.

As part of our VIP experience, we were delighted to have been granted an upgrade - the King's Royalty Package. Not only did we enjoy preferred seating in the first row, we also received cheering banners, commemorative programs and a group photo for each member of our party. A lovely souvenir!
