MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament has retained its 11th-century feast and tourney theme with jousting knights, but has a new storyline in its production.
The Herald of the North, who represents King Ulrick, Ruler of the North, is a new character in the show. Also changed are new costumes and new music, the first changes for the production in four years, according to spokeswoman Jennifer Willard.
The changes were launched in late June.
Each of six Medieval Times knights represents a non-fiction region from medieval Spain in the production. Audiences experience a two-hour performance with a utensil-free Middle Ages-style meal served in a castle-inspired 1,257-seat arena. Group rates are available.
Medieval Times’ United States locations are in Myrtle Beach; Atlanta; Buena Park, Calif.; Dallas; Hanover, Md.; Kissimmee, Fla.; Lyndhurst, N.J.; and Schaumburg, Ill.
Irving, Texas-based Medieval Times’ only Canada location is in Toronto.
The first Medieval Times opened in Majorca, Spain, in 1973; and it debuted in Kissimmee, Fla., in 1983.
