“Great for kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We went for my 12 yr old's birthday, but not buy the upgrade package for the special occasion. They start at an additional $10 pp. They ask you to get here an hour ahead of time, really so you can get your seating ticket and shop the giftshop - think Disney world. So much bigger than I'd imagined!

It was a great 1hr 45 min show with great horse show, some dressage, prancing, etc. The games were really good, and it's fun to divide the room into sections to cheer for a certain knight. The jousting at the end was fun, they use easily breakable jousting sticks then end with a sword fight. My kids had a ball.

The food was better than expected! Soup, chicken, a sparerib, garlic bread, a pastry and a soda/tea + coffee.

Highly recommended for special occasions.

“Fun for all ages!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Went for a girls night out. Super fun. Tons of food, not a bad price for beer. Bad acting, but that made it all the more hysterical.

“Dinner Theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is a fabulous dinner and a show sort of thing to take the kids to. You have to arrive early so you can have cringe worthy pictures taken, buy trinkets and Medieval Times doo-dads.

You eat with your hands and dinner includes: tomato basil soup, bread, 1/2 a roasted chicken, a BBQ rib, 2 hush puppies and then an apple turnover as dessert. They serve sweet tea, soda pop, water, coffee and there is a cash bar before you are seated. So the food is not spectacular but if you are a kid... this is amazing.. you are eating with your hands... while the characters are jousting and sword fighting.. what could be better?!?!

Look on the website for deals before making your reservations!! This is critical... you can save a LOT this way. This is an expensive outing.

It is a little dorky but again... for kids... AMAZING. This is similar to dinner theater back in the day (Circus Circus anyone?) The horses are truly spectacular.. and it is a fun show with lots of drama.

“Good Experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

We took our kids here for a special treat. We are not "medieval times" regulars, but this was fun. It is a good experience for all ages. Be prepared to eat the food with your hands. There are no utensils. Little kids may have some difficulty with this part. They give you a ton of food, so you do leave full. Kids will enjoy the horses, jousting, and sword fighting. I would recommend getting seats near the front row and close to the castle for the full experience. The actors did a really nice job. This is also a good trip for large groups. They offer birthday parties and more!

“Fantastic show, food has improved.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

We went here while on spring break vacation, approximately one year from our last visit. Both the food and the show had improved. The garlic bread had changed from a Texas Toast slice to a grilled pita bread round, which was much better. The tomato soup was served steaming hot and had a good flavor, although I still wish it had a perfectly smooth texture because it is sipped from a bowl rather than eaten with a spoon. The roasted half chicken was about the same. The spare rib was still awful, but the potato wedges were better seasoned. The apple pastry dessert was very good and better than last year. Overall, the experience is worth doing, as long as you don't expect a gourmet meal and keep your eyes on the arena.
