My family was really treated like VIPs on our recent trip to Medieval Times. We received our tickets and took a quick photo with King Arthur’s sword. We then witnessed a knighting ceremony and walked around the castle grounds getting ready for the show. We were also approached by the king himself who welcomed us and thanked us for coming to watch. Looking at all of the medieval artifacts around the castle was quite entertaining. There was also a live owl behind one window that my children gazed at in awe for at least 5 minutes before the doors to the show were opened.

The VIP group entered the arena first and was seated at a table in the front row. Awaiting us there were flags and towels to wave and cheer during dinner to show support for our champion (the blue knight). Our “wench” came around to introduce herself and tell us about the menu printed on the napkin and the drink choices. The greatest part of the wait staff is that they never break from character. We were always referred to as “lords and ladies”.

As we witnessed jousting, sword fights, horse tricks, and epic battles, the food was served. It was rather messy as they do not provide utensils, but it was delicious and entertaining. My personal favorite was eating the “baby dragon”. I mistook it for ½ a chicken

The knights and other actors are consistently interacting with the audience by throwing flowers or passing out ribbons to their fans. The winning knight of the evening also goes out and selects one lucky lady to be the queen after the final battle

Overall this was a great family outing. I even had a baby on my lap the entire time, and there was more than enough food to share and plenty of entertainment. My 6-year-old was a little worried at first about the noise level of the cheering and music, but about 5 minutes into the show, he quickly forgot and was captivated by the excitement. The 3-year-old was most excited about cheering for the blue knight and spent half the show waving at the horses as they ran and pranced by our seats. If you are planning a “stay-cation” and want to really get away to another time, Medieval Times is a great option.
