Great show. Beautiful horses. It is a good presentation of how battles were won and lost during medieval times.

We went here for an early time on Saturday for dinner. You can't miss this giant castle built in the middle of suberbia. They have spared little detail in making it feel like you're going into a castle back in the Middle Ages. Once you're inside be prepared to be bombarded by vendors selling everything from swords to beer with... More

My husband and two daughters, 5 & 7 went to a Sunday, 4:30pm show. We were told to get there by 3:15pm. Got our tickets online during spring break as a bogo. At 3:15pm, we walked right in and were given our table assignment. However, the previous show was still going on, so we had over an hour to kill... More

I brought my eight year old daughter here today for the first time. I have to say, it was money well spent. I went a head and paid for the fun extras (Ladyship Ceremony, Souvenirs) and it was totally worth it. Our wench was very attentive and kind. As well as all those working in the Hall of Arms. After...

This place is expensive, but you can always find a discount or coupon somewhere. But the atmosphere, food and production values are excellent. You eat a meal with your hands, of course, but the food was very good. The knights and royalty are dressed in lavish costumes, and you can meet them after the show in the lobby. The horses... More

Yeah it is kind of cheesy, but so entertaining. You get a huge dinner and a show! They always have some type of discount/special going on. I could have paid the same amount for a play/musical and not have gotten a meal or the entertainment factor. Who cares if the food wasn't 5 star quality. It was good decent foot... More

I went with wife,9 year old and a 6m old. We had a pretty good time and the baby even kept to occupied by the show. The place was very clean and service was excellent. The only reason I give it a 4 instead of 5 is the food and the tiny theater seating. I'm 6'4" 250 and I could... More

Tickets are usually pretty pricey, but we found a buy one get one deal for the two of us. Souvenirs and drinks are fun if you don't mind spend a little extra cash on them. The show is great! Lots of fun and they really get the crowd involved. It never felt slow or boring at all. We also LOVED... More
