Once you cross over the drawbridge and step through the gleaming white castle walls, the Excalibur transports you back to the mythical days of King Arthur. This "marvel of modern imagination" recreates the magic of medieval times with the "Tournament of Kings Dinner Show," and the Canterbury Wedding Chapels inside a hotel-casino replete with luxury amenities.
The Fantasy Faire Midway features medieval-themed games, Magic Motion simulator rides, an arcade and dozens of shops and restaurants.
An invitation to dine at King Arthur's table was once regarded as the highest of honors. And at the "Tournament of Kings" dinner show, an original music production adapted from the legend of King Arthur, you can feast on a three-course meal in a theater-in-the-round, where jousting knights on horseback battle dragons, evil wizards and each other to save damsels in distress. If what's on the plate is entertainment enough, try the equally medieval Steakhouse at Camelot, Sir Galahad's Prime Rib House, Regale Italian Eatery, Sherwood Forest Café or RoundTable Buffet. Dick's Last Resort is the latest addition to Excalibur with its zany wait staff and deliciously messy cuisine.
The Canterbury Wedding Chapels provide fairytale nuptials in two ornate chapels with cathedral-style vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows and arched entrances. The bride and groom can even re-enact the wedding of Arthur and Guinevere dressed in authentic period attire.
But before you tie the knot, why not treat your bridesmaids to the steamy "Thunder From Down Under." Australia's all-male revue takes its armor off nightly in Merlin's Theater. Finally, you will be treated like royalty whether you choose to order room service in one of nearly 4,000 guest rooms, pamper yourself in the Royal Treatment Spa & Fitness Center, lounge by the pool or take advantage of the free blackjack lessons in the casino. There's nothing medieval about that.
