Things to Do for Kids at Excalibur Hotel and Casino
For many people, a trip to Las Vegas is aligned with gambling, nightclubs and drinking. But among all the activities visitors partake in while visiting “Sin City” are several family-friendly activities that cater to the kids.
Excalibur Hotel and Casino has done an excellent job in ensuring that kids and adults alike enjoy their time in Las Vegas. At this resort, the fun things to do for kids include a dinner show, an arcade, carnival-style games and interactive rides. Our only tip: Make sure to set a spending limit before you enter the Fun Dungeon.
Tournament of Kings
Tournament of Kings is the most popular dinner show in Las Vegas, and that’s no surprise considering the action and adventure (not to mention the food) that guests get to enjoy during the show. You’ll be transported back to a time when Merlin used his powers, knights jousted and maidens sang. Kids and adults alike will be entranced by the fireworks, invading armies and jousting. The arena is broken up into several sections and each section cheers for its own knight while booing the others.
Though you can enjoy Tournament of Kings without the meal, the experience really is topped off by participating in the three-course, eat-with-your-hands meal.
Show times for Tournament of Kings are currently at 6:00 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday and at 6:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. The show is dark on Tuesday. General admission is $56.95 (plus taxes and fees) and includes a three-course meal. The show is suitable for all ages (kids under 3 years old may attend free of charge). Tickets for the dinnerless show are $44.00 (plus taxes and fees).
Drop a level below Excalibur’s casino and you’ll be in the Fun Dungeon. This medieval-themed midway is packed with an arcade, carnival-style games and magic motion machines.
The Fun Dungeon’s canival games are suitable for anyone. Adults can rediscover childhood favorites like skee ball and kids can try their hand at the old classics as well. In addition to the tried-and-true fair favorites, there are several new, high-tech video games in the Fun Dungeon.
There are a few kid-friendly rides in this area as well. The current featured ride is the SpongeBob 4D Special FX Ride. In it, SpongeBob wants to serve up the perfect krabby patty so he has to pursue a runaway pickle. Through advanced technology features, riders can feel the wind, smell the scents and touch the bubbles created during the experience.
In addition to the SpongeBob Squarepants ride, there are usually two other 4D rides available. All riders must be at least 42” tall.
Hours of operation in the Fun Dungeon and for the 4D rides vary by season, but generally run from mid-morning until at least 9:00 p.m.
