The Queen Has Arrived At Medieval Times #MTFan #Giveaway #hosted

We recently spent a Friday evening at Medieval Times in Lyndhurst, NJ checking out their newly enhanced show. Can you believe that all these years there hasn’t been a castle ruled by a Queen? It is perfect timing with the current climate of the world and the empowerment of Women on the rise. The Queen has arrived.
Medieval Times has always been a fun place to bring the family. Where else can you eat with your fingers and not get yelled at by Mom? Dinner consists of soup, chicken, corn on the cob & potatoes, all served in steel dishes. As you can see from the pic below, the food doesn’t go to waste. The service is exceptional considering the amount of people the waitstaff has to serve at one time. Soda, water & lemonade is included with your meal, however alcoholic beverages are an additional charge.
The best part of Medieval Times of course is the show. And it did not disappoint. The new show continues to highlight all of the things you love about Medieval Times: jousting, horsemanship, and swordplay. Depending on the section you are seated, you cheer for a knight who will battle for the championship. We were cheering for the Red & Yellow knight which won the battle! The energy of the crowd is energizing.
The Queen is the sole ruler of her kingdom and she is cast as a firm yet kind and respected leader. She has inherited the throne at the passing of her father, the previous king.
If you have seen the show in the past, there are a series of other significant changes to the show:
  1. More than 700 new costumes for all nine castles’ performers including horses, all of which are custom-designed and hand-made at a dedicated costume shop in Dallas, TX.
  2. 200 new suits of armor, shields, and helmets, all of which are custom-designed and hand-made at a dedicated armory in Florida.
  3. More than 350 team members and 225 horses train and rehearse new lines and fight scenes for three months while still presenting the current show.
  4. New music was composed by Dr. Daniel May, composer and jazz pianist who scored “Everest” and other films and who worked with Sting, The Moody Blues and others. He directed and recorded Medieval Times’ new show composition in Kiev with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine. He directed the choir in Ukraine with lyrics written by poet and choir member Solomia Gorokhivska, and a solo cellist and violin player from Pittsburgh, PA.
  5. The audience experiences a live action film score that is precisely synchronized with every element of the show, from lights to fights; jousts to jabs; the Queen’s entry to curtain closings; and more.
  6. The sound and light team spends 120 hours programming 300 new music cues and 500 new lighting cues. Several castles are installing and programming a new LED lighting system that offers 256 colors versus the old 14-color system. The system is powered by 10 miles of cable and an estimated million-dollar upgrade.
Lyndhurst is the third castle out of 9 in the U.S. and Canada to be part of this major announcement. The subsequent castles will follow over the next nine to 12 months. This is a must see this year with the family. We have a discount code VIP35 for $35 general admission tickets for shows in January (at the Lyndhurst castle only). So buy tix now!
 The boyz & I had an amazing night. Medieval Times has always been one of our favorite places to visit. New memories created for 2018 & when else can we say we met Royalty.
