Fiercest Father Challenge at Medieval Times

Last Thursday, Medieval Times held their inaugural Fiercest Father Challenge and it was a way for dads to show their mettle in front of Queen Maria Isabella. While the Fandads we unable to attend, we did want to share some coverage of the event and hope that this challenge will continue in the years to come.

Among the afternoon’s challenges, competitors will have the opportunity to test their mettle in Javelin Tossing, Archery, Lance Lunging, Queen Courtesies and more. All who successfully complete the circuit-of-chivalry will be officially knighted “Fiercest Fathers” by Queen Maria Isabella and receive a complimentary family four-pack of tickets to the Medieval Times performance of their choosing, Thursday, June 13, through Sunday, June 16. One winning team (pre-registered as a group or randomly assigned on-site) will receive a Father’s Day party package upgrade, additionally gifting the champions with a commemorative, framed family photo and souvenir glass stein.

This looked like it was an incredible time for the dads that competed and we wonder how the Fandads would have faired in these challenges.
