Excalibur is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas strip. The hotel derives it’s name from the mythical sword of King Arthur, and its facade is a stylized image of a castle. Excalibur offers everything you’d expect from a Las Vegas hotel – from dining and entertainment, to non-stop Las Vegas casino action. Excalibur is situated right at the Tropicana – Las Vegas Boulevard intersection. The hotel is linked by overhead pedestrian bridges to neighboring casinos to the north (New York-New York, across Tropicana Avenue) and to the east (Tropicana, across the Strip). There is a free tram that connects Excalibur to its sister MGM Resorts International properties to the south, Luxor and Mandalay Bay.
Excalibur is home to two permanent shows: the all-male revue Thunder From Down Under and the medieval themed dinner show Tournament of Kings. Thunder From Down Under moved to Excalibur in July 2001 and since then has received recognition as one of the best all-male strip shows in Las Vegas. In 2006, the performance space was renamed the “Thunder From Down Under Showroom” in honor of the troupe. Tournament of Kings is a medieval jousting tournament performed with 12 breeds of horses and 32 cast members in a 925-seat amphitheater called King Arthur’s Arena. The show includes a banquet feast served by a costumed serf or wench and is meant to be eaten without utensils. Tournament of Kings debuted along with the opening of Excalibur in 1990.
Dick’s Last Resort restaurant opened at Excalibur in June 2007. Dick’s is known for its unusual dining experience in which servers purposefully act obnoxious towards guests. Employee “Taco” is considered Dick’s mascot and entertains guests with his own version of the Bellagio fountain show using water dispensers behind the bar. Other restaurants within Excalibur include The Steakhouse at Camelot and the Roundtable Buffet.
