Looking for things to do at the medieval-themed Excalibur Hotel & Casino other than just admiring its castle shape from the outside of the hotel?

If you’re traveling to Las Vegas with kids, get ready for a long list of fun, kid-friendly things to do because Excalibur is hands-down one of the most family-friendly hotels on the Strip!

During all my visits to Las Vegas as a kid, we never missed out on a visit to Excalibur — their Fun Dungeon was nonstop fun for my sister and me! But that was decades ago. Since then, so much more has been added over the years. These days, there’s way more fun to be had at the resort.

In this guide, we’ll take you through the top must-see attractions and experiences that will make your visit to Excalibur Hotel Casino Las Vegas one for the books.

If you’re a kid at heart (or you’re visiting with the kids), you’ll love the Tournament of Kings dinner show followed by some high-energy game time at the massive Fun Dungeon. After playing arcade games to your heart’s content, grab dinner at one of the many casual restaurants, followed by a magic show or a Spice Girls Tribute show!

Even with all that said, we are just getting started with all the fun things you could do at Excalibur! You can discover the rest of the best below.

Tournament of Kings

Tournament of Kings is Las Vegas’ ultimate dinner-and-a-show experience, perfect for families and medieval-era jousting fans.

Set in a 900-seat theater arena, this immersive production retells the story of King Arthur and features valiant knights, majestic steeds, special effects, and pyrotechnics. The arena comes alive with the clash of swords, the thundering hooves of horses, and the cheers of the audience. As knights engage in epic battles, guests are transported back to a world of knights, damsels, and medieval life!

Tournament of Kings is such an interactive dining experience. Oh, and forget utensils — guests feast on a hearty meal using their hands, embracing the authenticity of medieval dining!

The Mac King Comedy Magic Show

The Mac King Comedy Magic Show is a 70-minute spectacle that has earned Mac King the title of the #1 comedy magician worldwide.

Unlike many modern magic acts, King relies little on technology and engineered props. Instead, he dazzles with the extraordinary achieved through seemingly ordinary means, capturing the essence of magic that exceeds expectations under seemingly impossible circumstances.

Combining quick wit, flawless sleight-of-hand, and an array of quirky acts involving live animals and audience participation, King’s family-friendly humor, Southern charm, and offbeat showmanship make for a laughter-filled time.

Spice Wannabe: The Spice Girls Tribute

Spice Wannabe: The Spice Girls Tribute takes you back to the 90s with an energetic show honoring the best-selling girl group of all time.

This interactive concert event, perfect for anyone who’s ever had their life spiced up by the Spice Girls, takes place at the Thunderland Showroom. Expect a super fun night featuring five-part harmonies, authentic choreography, iconic costumes, and the unmistakable charm of British accents of course!

The talented cast recreates the magic of Spice Girls’ biggest hits, including ‘Wannabe,’ ‘2 Become 1,’ ‘Say You’ll Be There,’ ‘Spice Up Your Life,’ ‘Too Much,’ and many more.

Fun Dungeon

Fun Dungeon at Excalibur

This place was made for kids. The Fun Dungeon at The Excalibur is basically like stepping into a medieval fantasy world filled with arcade games, carnival games, and even a motion simulator ride!

Once your kids discover this place, they won’t want to leave. Fun Dungeon offers 200 games, including 15 carnival midways, 10 kiddie land games, 60 arcade games, 10 sports games, and 106 ticket redemption games!

If you’re debating between this arcade and a few others on the Strip, we think the Fun Dungeon has an upper hand because the games are cheaper than those at Circus Circus (and a lot less crowded).

Ultimate 4-D Experience

If you’re looking for something more fun than just watching a movie with the kids, the Ultimate 4-D Experience may really pique your interest! This Fun Dungeon attraction combines high-definition 3-D projection with extra special effects, making YOU an integral part of the story and taking your entertainment experience to a whole new dimension.

You can choose between a few different shows, including Aquaman, Scooby Doo, and DC League of Super-Pets.

The Australian Bee Gees Show

Take a trip back to the disco era with The Australian Bee Gees Show, a fun tribute to the legendary Bee Gees. With a staggering resemblance and musical skills that mirror the original Gibb brothers, this spectacular 70-minute performance is a journey through five decades of timeless hits!

Having enchanted millions of people across sold-out theaters and concert halls in more than 40 countries, The Australian Bee Gees Show stands as the world’s premier Bee Gees tribute. With 22 years of experience, the group has perfected the art of channeling the Bee Gees’ unmistakable sound, earning international acclaim from both media and adoring audiences.

Thunder from Down Under

In terms of shows, the family-friendly attractions end there. Next up is Thunder From Down Under, a show you’ve probably seen photos of or heard of from one friend or another.

Thunder From Down Under is where the adults start having fun. This show delivers the perfect girl’s night out(back) at the Thunderland Showroom. This all-male dance revue is all about chiseled bodies, seductive dance routines, cheeky humor, and irresistible boy-next-door charm.

Where there’s thunder, there’s always rain, and in this case, it’s raining men at Australia’s Thunder From Down Under! This show is the ultimate bachelorette party and girls’ night out destination on the Vegas Strip.

The Buffet at Excalibur

The Buffet at Excalibur is open for brunch daily. On weekdays, they have their Weekday Brunch. The Weekend Brunch (which costs a bit more) takes place every Saturday and Sunday. 

You’ll find all your typical breakfast items like eggs, breakfast pizza, sausages, waffles, and pancakes, as well as more lunch-type foods like a carving station, Latin station, Asian and sushi station, and a dessert station (including sugar-free and gluten-free options).

Made-to-order options that you shouldn’t miss include the omelets and the crepes.

PRO TIP: If you play any of the myVEGAS gaming apps, you can redeem your points for a BOGO Free voucher for The Buffet at Excalibur, essentially making your entry 50% off (which is a great deal).

Dick’s Last Resort

Dick’s Last Resort is a spot where the menu might not be winning any Michelin stars anytime soon, but the laughter and overall experience are off the charts!

Don’t be alarmed when the staff members start being mean to you. That’s the whole point of this quirky restaurant. With servers who delight in trolling and roasting you, it’s a blast for the whole family. Don’t worry, though – they know when to dial it down for the little ones.

Grab a hat with a funny insult on it, brace yourself for some good-natured jabs, and get ready for a memorable dining experience that’s more about the fun than the food.

Take the free tram to Luxor and Mandalay Bay

Excalibur Tram

Directly from Excalibur, there’s a free tram that makes stops at Mandalay Bay and Luxor. This monorail line serves just these three hotels, so you’ll never have to wait too long to get from hotel to hotel.

Sure, you could spend the time and energy walking to those hotels, but if it’s too hot or you’ve already done too much walking for the day, the free tram will always be there as an option for you!

The tram is incredibly easy to access, but if you get lost, just ask any Excalibur staff member and they’ll point you in the right direction.

The Spa at Excalibur

If you want to relax like a king or queen for a day, a massage at The Spa at Excalibur is the place to be. Overlooking the pool area and spanning 13,000 square feet, this spa has a total of eleven treatment rooms and other spa amenities like steam, sauna, and shower facilities.

Despite being a spa on the Las Vegas Strip, you can expect more affordable treatments here compared to spas at other higher-end hotels. For reference, at the time of writing, a 50-minute massage at Excalibur is $25 cheaper than a massage at MGM Grand, and $40 cheaper than a massage at The Venetian.

Explore Other Hotels Near Excalibur

Excalibur is situated on the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip, so while it’s less central than other hotels, you still have many neighboring hotels within walking distance. (Don’t have a car? You could take the free monorail to get to further hotels on the Strip.)
