If you’re a member of the royal court, then you already know that Medieval Times in Lyndhurst, NJ has a new ruler – Queen Dona Maria Isabella. That’s right! For the first time in its 34 year history, a queen rules the land. Along with a new ruler, comes a whole new performance. Have you had the chance to see it yet? I’ve got the chance for you to win 4 tickets!
~Thank you to Medieval Times Lyndhurst Castle for hosting the Making Time family. As always, opinions are still 100% my own.~
Today, I want to share some most exciting news. At the passing of the king, his daughter has taken over the kingdom as a firm, yet kind and respected leader. All hail Queen Dona Maria Isabella!
Along with a new ruler, you may expect some changes within the kingdom, and you aren’t wrong. The Medieval Times performance has changed as well, getting quite a few upgrades and instilling more excitement than ever.
The show still incorporates the favorites, like jousting, horsemanship, swordplay, and of course, the amazing royal 4 course feast. But there’s a whole new storyline, as Queen Isabella takes the thrown. I don’t want to give it all away, but I will say that one of the royal knights seemed a bit rogue. He was out for blood in the tournament and wasn’t giving up for anything.
Go Red & Yellow Knight! He won the tournament for us last night. 🐎⚔️🛡 It was truly a night of fun and excitement, as we met the new queen, got a look at the new costumes, and enjoyed a new story line (the Black & White night was a little rogue). Even if you’ve been to @medievaltimes_nj before, it’s like a whole new experience! 👸🏰 #sponsored #QueenIsabella #newruler #MedievalTimes #HerMajesty #LongMaySheReign #AllHailTheQueen #MTFan #ChivalryInAction #RedYellowKnight #swordfight
Making of the new show:
- New custom-designed and hand-made costumes for both performers and horses.
- New custom-designed and hand-made suits of armor, shields, helmets.
- Performers practiced the new show for 3 months, while still performing the previous show.
- New music and lighting.
Having a Queen as ruler is pretty exciting and is one of my favorite new features of the Medieval Times performance. But aside from that, I have to say I’m really loving the new helmets. They all have such unique features, but my favorite helmets are those of the Green Knight and the Yellow Knight. Excuse my language, but they’re pretty badass.
Being in the stands I wasn’t able to get great shots of the helmets, but check out my favs from Medieval Times Instagram page (be sure to follow them and check out the other new helmets too!).
While changes have ensued, there’s still one thing that’s for certain. Medieval Times is an amazingly fun time.
