Several friends and I went to MT. For some it was a repeat trip; for others it was brand new. I've now been 3 times. We had front row seats, at the rounded part of the oval so that we faced the king & princess. These were the best. seats. EVER!
Our waiter, I think, had a part in the show itself as a standard carrier; that was neat seeing him in two roles. He was very attentive to us, which was nice.
The show is terrific - watching the falcon fly was a treat. The bird is breathtaking. The horses are well trained and beautiful. The horsemen / knights appear to love their animals. The "tournament" shows off the horse riders' skills. The fights, even though choreographed, are enjoyable to watch and require a lot of stamina & skill.
We did not tour the dungeon (an extra cost), or buy any merchandise. The merchandise ranges from souvenir cups to photos. Alcoholic beverages as well as any beverages other than those served with the meal cost extra.
The food portions are LARGE -we were served about 1/4 of a chicken, a rib, 1/2 of a medium potato, soup (it was really delicious - I could've just had that and been happy), a piece of bread, and an apple turnover. Drinks were coffee (after the meal), water, or sodas. If you have food left, they will box it for you.
Even though this is the "off season" for attractions in Myrtle Beach, the show was put on as though the house was packed. It is interactive, in that the knights engage the audience by asking for our support (huzzahs or cheers), throwing carnations to their patrons, and by picking a special person who will be queen of the tournament if her knight wins. Our knight picked a young girl (4? 5? years old) who was terribly excited when her knight won.
After the show, there is a meet & greet with the knights. Since we had no camera and were all adults with no children in tow, we skipped that part and headed out.
The operations manager is super and has really made a lot of improvements to the castle & overall show. He was there after the show with other "behind the scenes staff," and each was listening or ready to listen to comments from visitors.
I very highly recommend going to Medieval Times.
