2. Tournament of Kings
Eat, drink, and be merry at this awesome Medieval-themed dinner show at Excalibur.

The production value of this show is top-notch, with pyrotechnics, amazing props, and talented performers. A couple inside tips: try to get tickets for sitting in the Dragon section, the only section where you cheer for the bad guy. If you’re celebrating something special, speak to the box office and you might be able to have the wizard announce the occasion during the show.
3. KÀ by Cirque du Soleil
This action-packed show by Cirque du Soleil will have the whole family on the edge of their seats.
