I went to the show with a large group that had gotten discounts on VIP tickets. We had a room available to us before the show, so we were away from all of the loudness and sales in the outer lobby, plus we had places to sit. They served pre-show hors d'oeures, which just consisted of pigs-in-a-blanket and some mozarella... More

Our party of 8 adults and one 2 year old had a terrific time here. It wasn't my idea to go so I didn't have high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised! From our second row seats, we really enjoyed all the action. It was such fun to watch our little one reacting to all the action, especially the beautiful horses... More

The story is exactly the same at any Medieval Times event. That being said, our family still loved it. The food is great, and they accommodate vegetarians if you ask them to. There is a lot of sparkling that goes on, so be prepared for that. At times it was a little too much. The knights decide before hand who... More

Bought "Royalty" tickets (1st row seats aling with other perks) and had a great great time with our son for his birthday. Besides the jousting and "mortal combat" between the knights which was excellent, they have vastly improved the pre-jousting show. Trained hawk, and what I believe were Lippizaners were pretty amazing. Food was better than I remember and the... More

Great place to go for all ages. Show is always fresh, food is really good even if you do eat with your hands. Atmosphere is infectious! Our family keeps returning even though none of us are no longer children or teens chronologically. Accommodating to our handicapped needs. The show is just as good from the back row as the first...

There's so much more to do around the Chicago area to not go there. The show was ridiculously fake, not based on anything historical, with poor-level performers. Food was horrible (never had a chicken that taste that bad), at least the garlic breads and the soup were OK. Overall, this is very very expensive for this kind of show and... More

We had an awesome time at this venue. Most of the food was good. The server was fun and quick. I have some issues with steps, so I was a little worried, but the steps are shallow and there are tables to lean on. The only issue was that there was no room if you were in the middle of... More

This is our third time visiting Medieval Times and we returned because my daughter loves it. The show opens with a wonderful story and a majestic horse running out into the arena of mist. The night is made up of showmanship, jousting, falconry , bad guys, and all enjoyed while the Lords & Ladies of the arena dine on a... More

Great show, great food, great fun! We celebrated twin grandchildren's 12th birthday along with spouse's 71st and loved the entire event. We also had our 13 and 4 year old grandchildren with us in addition to our adult son and daughter-in-law. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The grandchildren were totally captivated to the point it was difficult to decide whether to... More
