My lords! My ladies! Let the tournament begin!

We're sure you've heard of Medieval Times, but if you've never been, now's the time to make it a part of your Myrtle Beach experience.

There's a feast that's fit for a king. Actually, he's sitting there in the dining hall with you, lording over all the pomp and circumstance.

The wait staff is very friendly and charming, making a point of referring to all of the evening's dinner courses as some part of a slain dragon. Who knew that dragon actually looks and tastes exactly like chicken?

It's just all part of the fun Medieval Times has to offer. But the highlight is the six knights who compete in several rounds of games before the main event - the jousting competition.

Lances and swords collide in these fights to the finish. The fights are all choreographed well, and it's electrifying to see those sparks fly as steel collides with steel.

And while rooting for your section's knight to prove victorious, you'll also marvel at the beauty of the horses they're riding.

Medieval Times' more than 400 horses are raised on a 241-acre ranch in Sanger, Texas. It houses quarter horses, Friesians, Menorcans and pure Spanish horses.

And they're in the Medieval Times arena, along with the knights, squires, kings and queens. This royal court has one goal, and one goal only - to take you back in time for a night of good, old fashioned family fun.

To quote the movie "Gladiator" -  "Are you not entertained?"
