We enjoyed our evening here. The show is very well done. The costumes are great, and the horsemanship was excellent. We found it entertaining, and worth the 55$/ticket we paid at AAA.
We went in with low expectations on the food since they are serving a large group, but we were actually surprised. I'm not saying it's 5 star gourmet, but it was better than a lot of wedding food I've had. The soup and garlic bread were delicious. The chicken and rib were tender. The pastry they served for dessert was freshly baked and warm. They give you unlimited soft drink or water with the meal.
Tips: Go early and check out the outdoor museum. Our show was set for 7pm. They told us to come for 6 pm. We went in to register and get our table number and matching crowns, then went back outside to the little medieval village. It's not a Smithsonian or anything, but it's cute to walk around. If you have kids, keep them here as long a possible (avoiding the torture section if they are small, it's well indicated so you won't go in by mistake). Once you are back inside the main waiting hall, it's an extra cash grab frenzy. They are selling every manner of gadget, wands, crowns, flags, souvenir cups, tattoos, scrolls and photos you can imagine. You can maybe save yourself a few bucks if you time it right and get the kids straight into the arena when they call the tables up at 6:45.
We ordered two beers pre-show at the bar, it's 8$ per beer, and that's in a medieval theme plastic cup. Fairly standard event overpricing. There are no prices written anywhere, so you get the shock of your life when you ask and find out it starts at 16$ PER beer in a souvenir cup. They get you into the spirit though. They pursue the sales inside the arena, so we succumbed to a further 2$ flag purchase and another 20$ for the souvenir photo they took of us at the entrance with the king. We left our waitress a 10$ tip, so plan the budget ahead of time if you have a big family. They are selling upgrade packages at the entrance when you check in, varying from an additional 10-30$ per ticket. Check it out carefully, if you want a picture that's going to run you 20$ anyway, the package might include that. We got seats in the second row regardless, and all the views appear to be good.
