Castle staff. The Castle of Muskogee

The Castle of Muskogee covers 36,000 square feet with an accompanying Renaissance Village. The owner built the entire attraction from a warehouse and a field into a 60-acre playground. The Castle has a dungeon, a torture chamber, and catacombs, while the Village has three pirate ships, a mermaid cove, a faery boardwalk (with a 12-foot-tall Ent), a jousting arena, a working clock tower, and an Italian piazza. The grounds are home to the annual Oklahoma Renaissance Festival, Halloween Festival, Zombie Run, Boare's Head Feaste, and Castle Christmas.

The Castle - Medieval Parties

What the other tips failed to mention is that the weeks leading up to Halloween The Castle is turned into a GREAT Haunted House. Complete with hay rides and everything else you can think of.

Medieval Castle, sort of. The Castle - Medieval Parties

This cinder block building was not clearly visible from the side of the road, however, upon deciding to go check out the defunct looking signage, we saw a sign for the entrance. As we approached we didn't know what to believe... we were immediately met by a man who appeared to be the owner. A very friendly fellow. He has built this complex up (some 60 acres) to resemble an entire medieval village. This is the site of the annual Oklahoma Renaissance Fair.

It was NY Eve when we visited the place and it was guarded by inflatable toy soldiers which during the day were all deflated. Inside there was a grand hall, oversized plywood "thrones" and a mosaic on a 1970s parquet tile floor.

Oversized thrones.

The owner pointed out a dungeon below the grand hall floor, with actual stocks and catacombs down another hallway. I explored a bit more, taking in the shag carpeted ceiling covered in what looked like mold. The place smelled of burnt wood, as many a holiday party of greater Muskogee must have taken place in one of the several rooms decked with 1970s wrought iron light fixtures and period wagon wheel chandeliers. Of course, these were above us, wired in amongst the drop ceiling tiles that were yellowed with cigarette and fireplace smoke, and no doubt -- age.

Sounds very Medieval-ly.
