As the grandparents of an 11 year old; my wife and I were asked to join his 11th Birthday Party at Medieval Times, with he and his parents and 3 "buddies". The 8 of us arrived and after going through the usual introductions, we made our way to the far side front row and prepared for the dinner and show.... More

Eight adults in our party had a very pleasant time at the 6pm performance on New Year's Eve, Really the only unpleasant part of the evening was the herding into the performance area. Once in the arena the evening was fab fun. My husband and I had attended a similar type of performance years ago in Benidorm Spain and we... More

Thank you very much for the review! Medieval Times actually began its saga in Majorca, Spain and came "across the pond" in 1983 to present the Dinner and Tournament that you see today. We're so glad you enjoyed your experience with us and hope to see you again soon! More

I have always wanted to go to Medieval Times and we finally decided to surprise our family (4 kids ranging from 5-12) with the experience. Bought tickets online using coupon code on the website, still cost around $250. Decided not to upgrade to VIP seats, took our chances and got 2nd row seats for a 4:30pm show. Our server was... More

Great dinner with entertainment. My 7 year old son thought the fighting was awesome and older daughters liked watching the horses. Good food and service. Cost over $400 for 9 people, but something the kids will remember for a long time.

When you buy this overpriced dining experience, they suggest/request to arrive 90 minutes in advance for best seating assignment (First Come "Best" serve!) Among the very first to check in...a respectful party of 13 is assigned table 18 Red...and at the question..."Are we sure this is a good table For our 6 kids?"...the answer is "Best Table Sir!"

We're very sorry to hear about your experience. Our venue is set up with arena seating and most would agree that there's not a bad seat in the house. In response to being sat at table 18- on sold out shows (as this day was), our 1st-3rd rows are reserved for our VIP upgrades. This leaves rows 4-6 for General... More

Medieval times is a must do....once or twice. It is expensive and if you have small children, you will probably have to buy a light up sword. Food is ok. The show is great. I have a 2yr old and 6yr old. Both kids loved it. My 2 yr old was in awe the entire show.
