Jousting Experience Day
This truly one-of-a-kind experience transports you back to a time when knights ruled the realm and jousting was considered the sport of champions. You won’t just be watching the action unfold though, you’ll be playing a starring role, as you saddle up and set your sights on becoming a heroic knight.
Your incredible medieval masterclass starts with a change into authentic costume and armour, meaning you’ll look and feel like a real-life knight. Then for the really exciting part, as you learn a variety of basic jousting skills and discover how to use your lance to dismount opponents, strike the spinning Quintaine target and collect rings from the tilt.
Like a true knight you’ll also learn essential longbow and sword skills. Fans of films such as Robin Hood and A Knight’s Tale will love the chance to act out their own sword fight with a choreographed battle, before performing for the rest of the group.
In the afternoon put into practice all that you have learnt and show off your skills in the ‘Gauntlet Challenge’ competing in a series of competitions to collect points for your team. But do you have what it takes to pass the final test and defeat the infamous Black Knight to claim your knighthood?
