The City's Favorite Dining Show - Tournament of Kings
Tournament of Kings is Las Vegas’ ultimate dinner and a show experience. Adapted from the tale of King Arthur, this live-action production takes place in a 900-seat theater-in-the-round arena and immerses the audience in a tale of valor and treachery. Valiant knights ride mighty steeds and prove their chivalry amongst special effects and pyrotechnics. While knights fight, guests feast on a hearty three-course meal using the original utensil – their hands. Tournament of Kings is an epic portrayal of centuries past, and it’s all in the name of honor, country, and of course, food.
- It requires 36 staff/management to run the show which includes cast, stable staff, and managers.
- There are 22 horses in the Tournament of Kings stable.
- 10 horses are used in the Tournament of Kings show.
- Excalibur is the No. 1 purchaser of Cornish Game Hens in the United States. Since June 1990, approximately 6,700,000 hens have been served.
- Tournament of Kings has become the setting for several dozen marriage proposals each year. All of the maidens have said yes to the gallant knights – that is all except one.
- Approximately 4,100 lance tips are shattered each year.
- The soil used in the arena is mixed with synthetic fibers to create a better cushion. This is important because many of the show's stunt falls are done off of the horses.
- The swords used in the performance are titanium and create sparks during battle sequences.
- We use 10-12 tons of wood shavings monthly in the horse’s stables.
- As a group, all of our horses eat 125 tons of hay annually.
- The core team producing Tournament of Kings (Producer, Director and Stunt Coordinator), have been with the show since its opening in 1999. They were all also involved with the original King Arthur’s Tournament, which opened at the Excalibur in 1990.
