We attended the show for our 20th anniversary. We both love horses and thought it would be a fun thing to see. It was excellent! The choreography of the fighting and jousting was exciting and it was fun how everyone got involved in cheering for their knight--and ours won! The food was good and plentiful and the staff was great.... More

Had a good time at the show. The food was good and the price for everything was fair. This is a good place for the whole family. You will not regret going to the show.

Some of the other reviews provide you a blow by blow account of what you will see, but I'll keep it simple. If you are looking for entertainment that is appropriate for all ages, then this will be a great choice. We went to Medieval times as a large family group of 13, ranging in age from 2-56 years old.... More

The food isn't bad and the show is pretty fun. My three year old daughter loved the horses and falcon and my nephew thought the nights were very cool. I wouldn't go just for the food, it's the show that makes the price worth it. I went during a (nearly) half price show special and wouldn't pay full price to... More

Medieval Times in Schaumburg is a pretty fun place to go. Schaumburg is about 55 minutes west of Chicago so if you are coming from the city make sure you have plenty of time because traffic can be pretty bad. we went to the 4:30 show, left the city (Michigan Ave.) at around 2:00 and got to the castle at...

It worked out that we were here the same day as my brother's birthday. For $20 I had my brother "Knighted" for an undisclosed birthday. They called him up in front of everyone before going in for dinner, knighted him with a sword and then took a picture of him with the King. It was a fun gift for him... More

Me and my wife we're coming from out of town, and I got an email and they cancelled the show only giving us a 6 day notice. The reasoning was stupid in my opinion too. They felt like they didn't sell enough tickets up to that point for that night. That's not my problem! I paid good money to go,... More

We am very sorry to hear that your experience with our castle was not a good one. We cancel very few shows but alas there are times when it does not make business sense to put on a show. When this happens we offer free Royalty upgrade for a future show that is rescheduled. We understand that you were from... More

A fun evening watching the entertainment. Eating though was a little messy as always. Kids have a great time and enjoy having their picture taken.

Surprisingly Great Food for the money. The kids liked all the spectacle. One thing you should be prepared for is that during the show, vendors came by hawking everything from light up swords and toys to photo packages. It was a little too distracting.
