We had an hour and a half drive to get to Medieval Times and back,  and the show was about 2ish hours. But it was so worth it! We had fun, got to know new friends, ate good food, laughed and cheered the day away!

Keith has been to Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament before, this was my first time. We already have plans to go back again for my birthday in August and his in October. This was so much fun!! It was nice to hang out with new friends in such an upbeat atmosphere. The food was delicious. They have a vegetarian option that was DELICIOUS 😊 The entire staff was friendly and laid back. Souvenir cups were pricey. You could get your photo taken with the royalty of the court and that was verrrrry reasonably priced. Parking is free and lines to the ladies room moved along quickly. Our waiter was attentive and he was a lot of fun too. And the wait staff is also running around like crazy because they have bit roles in the show in between waiting on tables.

Vegetarian Meal Option; Bean, Rice & Tomato Stew w/warm pita, hummus, celery, carrots & fresh fruit for desert 😋⚜

Aaaaaaaand at the end of the evening I went off from the group for a few minutes and look who I ran into…our very own, and very charming Yellow Knight! He was our Champion in the tournament. Unfortunately, he lost his match (and it turns out he was a scoundrel 😲

Ps… See that big blinding white light? Well it’s a police officer and he saw the knight and I approaching to talk and he PHOTO BOMBED us! Well I have no clue how to photoshop him out, my skills are nowhere near that good, so this had to do 🤷🏻‍♀️😂 He’s a handsome scoundrel, isn’t he?

Busch Gardens 07/30/2017

main

I walked🚶🏽 alllllllllll day lol.  Close friends of ours were heading to Busch Gardens for the day and we hadn’t been there together since 2007 when the Griffon roller coaster🎢 ride first opened there.

It was a short travel to get to Busch Gardens, about an hour. We arrived at around noon and left after Celtic Fyre at about 9pm. It was a long day of walking, burning a whole lot of calories and having fabulous day with friends.

My hubby & I had so much fun even though we didn’t do many rides. Keith did a few of the coasters (If you are in to roller coasters, you’ll LOVE this park) with our friend Jason while me, Jason’s wife Wendy, their son and our friend Rachel (her hubby had to work 😞) and her two girls took the kids for their rides and fun adventures. We all met up after and went to the “More Pet Shenanigans Show”.  😸🐶🕊️🐔🐀🐷All their animals are rescues and they are treated really well. The show was realllllly cute and funny. The video below wasn’t the show we attended (this was posted last year) but all the animals seemed to be super happy and having fun. All the dogs were wagging their tails and looked loved.

 

 

 

The whole layout of Busch Gardens is really beautiful, with lots of places to stop and rest in the shade and get cool drinks. We did a meal package plan which was very reasonably priced for a theme park. And the food, although cafeteria style was delicious, with healthier options available. There are adventures and experiences for all ages and the park is kept clean (even the bathrooms).

After the More Pet Shenanigans Show, we all kind of went our separate ways. Jason and Wendy headed home and Rachel and the girls went over to have fun with the Sesame Street Show and fun play area. Keith and I went to see Britmania, a musical show about the British invasion of music into the U.S., it was a fun show especially if you are a fan of musicals and music. After that we grabbed some dinner in Canada since we had done lunch in England. The park is divided up by hamlets to be able to travel your way around the park. Each of the hamlets has their own shops with fare that would be from that hamlet. From baked goods, to jewelry.

After dinner we headed to Celtic Fyre, which was the show we were most looking forward to seeing! If you like celtic song and dance, you would be mesmerized by their performance! It was Broadway level showmanship and artistry. We would go back just to see this show again! Below is a promo for the show.

 

 

We headed homeward bound after Celtic Fyre. I ended up burning about 1, 400 😯calories just walking around all day! So all in all it was a pretty ✨magical ✨day
