Do swords spark?

In fact swords do strike sparks quite often. If one isn't careful with the speed and angle, not only are sparks likely, but sometimes may result is blades "welding" themselves together.

Similarly one may ask, how do Medieval Times swords spark?

They pointed to the titanium swords used by actors who pretend to be knights. In order to produce the sparks, they say, little bits of metal have to fly off the swords. Typically, netting is lowered to stop the shavings from striking the audience.

Similarly, what sound do swords make when they hit each other? they probably make a "clanging" sound (that's the common sound used to describe metal on metal).

Moreover, how long would a real sword duel last?

That's a hard answer especially if both combatants are of the same skill and experience. A sword fight would last until one of the combatants was either dead or wounded to the point he could no longer fight. Depending on that I'm guessing a sword fight could last 10 to 15 minutes, maybe more.

What time should I arrive at Medieval Times?

Medieval Times encourages guests to arrive 75 minutes prior to show time. During this time, experience the extensive gift shop, full-service bar, the museum of torture and observe the master falconer and his birds of prey up close.
