Ready for another installment of family fun in Las Vegas? Today I’m sharing about a fun dinner show for families in Las Vegas. Thank you so much to the Tournament Of Kings for hosting us on a day of family fun.

Tournament of Kings is a live action family friendly show that the whole family will enjoy.

From real horses and jousting to dancing maidens it’s a fun way to have a nice dinner and be entertained as only Vegas can do. There are moments of humor that are funny for the adults but still appropriate for kids. Plus competing kings engage in sword fights and audience gets in on the fun as you cheer for your own king! When you arrive you are shown to your kingdom and given a king to root for the entire time! There are even fireworks!

The Tournament of Kings is located in the Excalibur Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

The whole hotel has a medieval theme. The girls love going there because it looks like a castle from the outside. The show itself is at the bottom of the hotel and you get to walk through the games area to enter. There are traditional fair games and video games just outside the doors so get there early.


Let’s talk about the food.

Since we all are vegetarians {with a vegan in our group too} I wasn’t sure what if anything we would be able to eat. Surprisingly that was not a problem at all. If you do have a dietary need be sure to get there early and let them know right away. It will take a little bit longer to get your food so any extra time you can give them the better. The vegan was served a steamed vegetable platter and us vegetarians had pasta.

The food is served in an authentic manner and the entire meal is eaten without utensils {vegetarian meal was given a fork}. 

The regular meal is a really tasty creamy tomato soup, a whole roasted game hen, a large side of broccoli, a biscuit, and a red potato or two followed by a warm apple strudel. Pepsi, sierra mist and water are complimentary along with coffee, served with dessert. Everything else is an additional fee and there is a full bar available.

There are two shows daily {except Tuesday when it’s dark} at 6pm and 8:30pm show which makes it perfect for families with younger children.

The Little One still likes to go to sleep earlier so the 6pm show was perfect for us! Although there is tons of action it wasn’t scary at all… quite the opposite, it was very merry and my 4 year old liked it just as much as my 14 and 12 year olds did.

Tickets are $65.60 a person but I’ve seen deals out there for less.

By Vegas standards this is a very good deal even at full price when you take into consideration that you are getting a dinner and a show. Learn more and buy tickets here.
