“Always a fun time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We visit Medieval Times several times a year. The changed the show recently to a new story line, I liked the old one better but it's still a good show. Before the show starts there is a knighting ceremony available, for a charge, where your child can become a knight. There is also a museum of medieval torture. I think the museum is too dark, seeing it once was enough for me.

We always enjoy the meal, you can pick up their chicken seasoning in the lobby and it's great on the grill. For banquet hall food it's really quite tasty. They start off with tomato soup you slurp from a pewter bowl. Then you are served a half a chicken, a rib, a quarter roasted potato and a wet wipe! Desert is an apple turnover, flaky and tasty.

After the show the performers are in the lobby for photo ops. My daughter loves to have her picture taken with the knights. They stay in character and are a lot of fun.

“Great production entertainment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Wow what an amazing production in the arena! Granted your first stop into the castle is the gift shop area and the bar, but once you get in to the arena that's where the magic really happens! Food was served during the show and comes part of your ticket. Food was delicious especially the apple pastry dessert at the end! Don't rush through the experience, take your time and explore everything but above all cheer your heart out for the knight you've been assigned to.

“Great show. No silverware.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

The show was lots of fun. The food was fine but not a standout. Also, you will not get any silverware, so if you are a germophobe or just don't want to be a mess while and after eating, bring your own or at least some hand sanitizer.

“A Great Evening @ Medieval Times!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

I treated my 4 kids (ages 16-30) to Medieval Times over spring break. We all enjoyed it! The amazing horsemanship, realistic jousting & delicious "roasted dragon" were definitely worth it. There was a spring break BIGIF deal, so the price was right. This is my 2nd visit.

“Tourist Trap”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

The food was terrible, everything was overpriced, the show was cheesy. I felt sorry for the horses. Very crowded and loud. Overpriced tourist trap.
