Visit The Excalibur Hotel and Casino and enjoy our favorite show!
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 among 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.

  1. My son is begging to go to Las Vegas because he wants to go on the zip line. I have never been to Vegas but I’m glad there is more than one thing to do with the child that has nothing to do with the casino.

  2. Las Vegas is one of my favorite trips we took as a family. There is so much to do there for the whole family.

  3. I’ve taken my family to Vegas. There are some things to do with them. The shark tank and white tigers and definitely the fountains. Some other Vegas shows can be kid appropriate too, but you do have to keep your eye out for a lot of the hidden inappropriate things.

  4. I was skeptical when my in laws wanted to take the kids to Las Vegas. They did see some things that were “inappropriate” but the fun they had and being able to see buildings that are larger than life was really cool for them. They did like Freemont street.

  5. I love Vegas but I never actually realized there was so much stuff for kids to do there too! Thank you for sharing this post! 🙂

  6. We had an AWESOME time when we went to Vegas with our family! There is so much to do even with all of the casinos–so many cool restaurants, gorgeous pools, fun museums! Love Vegas!

  7. I’ve been trying to convince my husband that there are things to do in Vegas that are suitable for a family. I’m going to have to show him this!

  8. I honestly don’t need reasons but these are all awesome. I think Las Vegas is not just a place for adults, it can be a place for families as well, if you know where to look.
