Party Like It’s 999, Baby!

And now for something completely different – A Medieval New Year. That’s right! Medieval Times Georgia Invites Everyone to Party Like It’s 999!

Apparently, Medieval Times Georgia opened this last Summer. I’ve not been nor have I heard of the place but, in a quest to find something interesting to do in Atlanta for New Year’s Eve, I offer this information.

Anyone been to see a show at this place?

    “There were no utensils in medieval times, hence there are no utensils AT Medieval Times. Would you like a refill on that Pepsi?”

    Hmmm….. Roger that….. so, it must be like Renn Fest indoors. A buddy of mine said that he’d been to the one in Florida and had a blast – including throwing finished chicken bones into the jousting ring. You got to love a place like that.

    I’ve been to Medieval Times.

    Utensils are indeed hard to come by, unless you get the vegetarian meal.

    “Would you like to buy a glow stick, m’lady” is a commonly heard question.

    The lowest-priced Sam Adams is $7.

    I saw no throwing of chicken bones.

    Admission is between $48 and $58 for adults.

    The staff is a mix. They look a bit like the drama kids at a high school. The jousters look like RenFesters, with a hint of Guitar Center thrown in.

    Very fun, but very weird.

    I’ve been wanting to go there for ages. Don’t know if I want to spend that kind of money, though.

    I’ve been. Went this summer with some blokes from Iceland, to show them what we Yanks think the Middle Ages looked like. It can be pricey, but look for drink specials. A big-ass glass goblet of Sam Adams ended up being a decent amount of drunk for the money, all things considered.

    Is it tacky? Oh, my, yes. Gloriously so. But some of the fighting is pretty decent and it’s certainly a good time. Yes, it is not actually 1180 AD in there, but you didn’t want to catch the pox or smell the horse poop anyway, did you?

    I went with some friends. Delightfully tacky, with sweet WWF style acting during the joust.

    The incessant glow stick, photograph, etc. sales were rather irritating.

    Insider tip: ask for a paper cup when purchasing beer, otherwise they’ll charge you an outrageous price for a glass (that you get to keep). My friend fell for this, and she jacked a plate in revenge.
