I have heard good things about Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament for years and yet we have never been there. I think it is about time to change that. We are planning a trip there in the next few weeks. We will be going to the one in Lyndhurst, NJ.
The kids were really excited when we told them about it. We will be sharing all the fun with our readers through live posting while we are there and a full rundown on everything that happened when we get back.
I have been studying up on what happens during the performance to get myself ready for the action. Did you know the Knights perform with real metal weapons and wear authentic armor? They do, and during battle scenes, real titanium swords create sparks. I also learned that Medieval Times is the #1 breeder of pure Spanish horses in North America.
When jousting, the Knights charge at speeds of approximately 15 to 20 miles per hour and reach an impact velocity speed of about 30 to 40 miles per hour. This must all make people crave soup because 125,000 gallons of soup are served each year!
