Medieval Times is celebrating 30 years of feasting and fun in North America. The founders first launched their unique idea for an 11th century-style dinner attraction on the Spanish island of Majorca in 1973. This imaginative new entertainment spot was inspired by the true medieval tradition of royal families inviting guests to a festival and feast to watch knights compete on horseback.
Seating is first come first serve. There is no reserved seat assignment. No cancelation policy on show tickets. Allergy/Strobe Warning: Medieval Times is a live horse show in an enclosed arena. Persons with respiratory conditions, allergies, or asthma attend at their own risk. Medieval Times uses stroboscopic and pyrotechnic effects.

I went here with my fiancé and friends. We got military discounted tickets and upgraded through our USO on base. We had a fantastic time. I don't know why anyone complains about this place. The food was great. Everyone gets the same thing, it says it on the website so if you don't like it, don't book and then complain about it. I highly recommend the later showing at 7:30 pm I don't feel we were as rushed as the earlier group. Bottom line, read the website so you know if it's for you before you go and you won't have any complaints!

We went to the late show on July 28. My son choose this for his 13th birthday celebration on the beach. Food was good (typical for a dinner at a large arena where you can only eat with your fingers!). Our server was great! The low rating is because of check in (we had already made reservations, only needed to pick up tickets). The girl working was less than enthusiastic, I told her we were celebrating a birthday, she gave us stickers to wear and said it would be announced during the show. A few others were announced, but not his. Not a huge deal but it was disappointing. Kids enjoyed the show, especially the "sparks" from the fights.
They want you to arrive early to enjoy many things inside this wonderful and very majestic place. The show was very entertaining and easy to follow. I was worried for my younger son as far as not getting bored with the show but he never lost interest and he said that after the show it was "the best day ever!" The dinner could maybe have another choice besides chicken. Although i thought the meal was very good and well worth your money. And i'm sure i'm not alone when i say this but my "other half" doesn't eat chicken. Other than that.....if your looking for something to do this is something well worth the money and your time!
The show was very entertaining! We had some idea of what to expect after seeing Dixie Stampede several years ago, but this was SOOO MUCH Better!! Our boys, ages 14 and 11 truly enjoyed the jousting and tournament style duels and competitions. The horses and 'Knights' were so well trained. It was fun and amazing. The food is good and portions seem huge - might help if the chicken came in pieces, but some of the fun is eating with your hands and tearing it apart. Our server was friendly, fun and very helpful. We ordered tickets online and then picked them up at the window and had great seats - center of the arena, cheering for the Black & White knight.
