About this Chicago, Illinois tour
Step back a thousand years into a medieval castle, where six Spanish knights vie for the title of King's champion. Heavily armored warriors with much at stake, they fight for their honor.
Thundering hooves and roaring fans propel them onward. Sword to sword, lance to lance, and fist to fist, the mounted jousters charge valiantly at their foes.
Who will prevail? Will warrior priest Don Iofre Sans Creu triumph over Don Alberto del Mau, champion of the defenseless? Will swordsman Lord Del Font defeat chivalrous Don Eduardo Del Ray? Will lionhearted Baron Ruiz de Roig be the first to unhorse Don Temple?
Marvel at the swooping falcons, prancing steeds, and clashing swords; this is the battle royal. Gulp down your grog and give a lusty cheer, clapping with hands covered with food. Forks haven't been invented yet.
Joust do it
The castle at the Chicago Medieval Times has been featured in more than one Hollywood movie. Garden State for one, but the most notable was Cable Guy. In it, the characters played by Jim Carrey and Matthew Broderick take over the stage (the arena floor) in full knight gear, in a duel for the ages.
