This is a must see for all ages. From my 4-year old grandson to my 72-year old husband, we had a phenomenal time at this medieval experience. The food was very good and generous and the show was exciting, one of a kind. My grandson's said it was the best time ever!

Medieval Times is exactly like a real medieval jousting tournament, if one accepts the premise that medieval knights rode dressage horses and all looked more or less like Fabio. Seriously, it's a lot of fun, especially for kids -- my jaded 9 year old loved it. It's intentionally over the top, but when you strip away the hype, they're all... More

We enjoyed our Medieval Times experience. we have 3 children (aged 11, 14 and 17). On the Thursday night we were there, the stands were less than half full. We did not upgrade our seats, but still got sat in the first row, but on the end where they enter the arena. We were a bit concerned about the viewing... More

In 1993 I visited the Medieval TImes in Kissimmee, Fl. 20 years later and living in Michigan I was excited to see there was one outside of Chicago and even more excited to take my husband there! It is a beautiful site just off the I-90 (turnpike) with several hotels nearby or if you prefer a ways down the road.... More

Such a fun place with great food. You can always find coupons and deals online or in travel flyers. One of the best places to visit in Chicago!

Like Kohl's Dept Store, never pay rack rate. There are ALWAYS specials. This was my 2nd trip to this location- the first was 12 years ago and then this past weekend. Not much has changed. Sure the storyline is different, but everything else is the same- constant up-selling, from packages to pictures to lighted swords to the "knighting" and more.... More

My family loved the food here (1/2 chicken, a rib, potato, garlic bread, tomato soup). The show is great fun for the family. FYI, when you come in you don't get seated right away. They let everyone in to a large common area where you can sit, drink, and shop until they announce seating about 15 minutes before the show.... More

I went here 10 years ago and again 3 years ago. I love it every time. I would pay the extra to visit the dungeon. The food is average, but the show is worth the money.

Lots of good food...my family always has enough leftovers for a couple of meals that week. Service is hit or miss...once they miss, they miss hard. If they hit, then they hit soft. At least the show keeps you entertained while waiting.

I took my 5 year old grandson. He loved it. Food is great and plentiful. Show is great. All seats are good, though we did get preferred seating and I was glad we did. Bryden is now "Sir Bryden" after a knighting ceremony (extra cost). Great birthday adventure for any kid!
