Medieval Times is a family-friendly dinner attraction inspired by an 11th century feast and tournament. Guests are served a four-course banquet meal (served without utensils, of course) and cheer for one of six knights competing in the joust and other tests of skill.
You may feel like this is goofy and you're only going for the kids.....but try it out, it's actually a lot of fun and some great entertainment! The tickets aren't "cheap" but when you factor in both the dinner and the great entertainment, it is definitely worth it. We also upgraded our tickets to the VIP/Kings Feast section to get front row seating and it was great!
My 6 year old and I loved the food. Pretty basic but quite tasty menu included tomato bisque, foccacia bread (quite soft and delish), massive quantity of roasted chicken and ribs that were also quite good, potato, apple strudel and a drink. Really was good. And they do have vegetarian options too.
Gotta love this place. And both the animals and the actors did an amazing job! I captured some scenes from our 2012 visit below.
