The last time we went there was to celebrate our son's birthday. We got the front road seats. Both kids and adults equally enjoyed the show. Sadly, our knight did not win the Tournament. However, he put up a good fight for us. The food there was surprisingly good. The chicken was moist, the rib was tender. The only thing... More

Worth every penny! Great horses,great entertainment, & a truly great meal. They want me to tell you all about this castle, but if I do, you'll know too much and you might not want to see it. I only knew before I went that it was going to have jousting and sword fighting and of course a meal. But until... More

I chaperoned my son’s senior trip organized by his primary school to Medical Times in Lyndhurst, NJ. To rank a place like this has to take into account the price. If it is free, it is fantastic. If it is $100, it is much less so. I paid $75, which included the lunch--a piece of garlic bread, roasted chicken quarter,... More

I've never gone to Medieval times before, but I've always really wanted to. My issue is the vegetarian meal though. The regular meal consists of 6 different items, (chicken, potato, corn, a pastry, garlic bread, and soup. The crummy vegetarian meal on the other hand, only comes with 3 items ( Hummus, 3 bean soup, fruit or italian ice)...First of... More

My husband and I went for our anniversary. We had a great time, the performance was unbelievable and the food was surprisingly good. One of the nicest things that was unexpected was the courtesy shown to all the guests by the staff.

Medieval Time was very fun trip! When you first get there is a lot to take in. Its a little dark in the arena so don't bring kids who get scared while in the dark. The gift shop is a little pricey with things as expensive as $20-$30 dollars. I got a very cute princess hat. There is also cheap... More

I just love this place, my husband and I went there and we enjoyed every minute of it. We got first seats too! Food is good but you're not there for food, you're there to enjoy the show. The only downside was: you pay almost $200 but you don't get ANY special treatment, in fact, the seats behind us get... More

Give yourselves plenty of time if you are coming from Long Island, NY. The traffic was horrific! Once there we were warmly greeted. We paid for the Kings package which got us front row seats (my mom can't see well anymore). Prior to the show there are the usual token souvenirs but the show started promptly and our 'manservant'(waiter) was... More

I took my family there for Mother's Day 4 adults and 2 children. The kids had never been before and we were on a weekend "Adventure" trip. The kids loved it but were way to excited to eat so we brought their dinners home. The chicken was great, the corn was overcooked, the half potato was OK, the tomato soup... More
