North America’s longest-running dinner attraction has crafted an all-new production that now you are invited to experience! It’s MEDIEVAL like never before, with even more action-packed fun, all new tournament games and a re-imagined feast, fit for a king.

The fantasy comes alive as you travel back in time to the 11th century spectacles of jousting, swordplay, horsemanship, and falconry abound; a time of Spanish castles, Knights of the Realm and feasting in a true medieval fashion-utensil-free!

The Show: You’ll still be encouraged to cheer for one of six brave Knights of the Realm! The new production features amazing lighting, costumes, choreography, exciting battle scenes, new horse dressage elements and a fresh musical score by the world renowned composer Daniel May.

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.

"Chivalry is not dead"
October, 2016
My husband and I adopted a 5 yr old today and decided to surprise him with a visit to medevil times
He loves Knights and swords
This child had been burned ,beaten and starved before we took him in and now he is adopted
He was still a little nervous from being in a courtroom all day but we asked the guy at medevil times if there was something he could do The person we spoke with was the main announcer for the event and his true name is Jody
He told me we could have a Knighting ceremony
Which we did and he loved it
All through the show anytime Jody came out on his horse he would wave to our boy or give him a smile
After the show Jody actually came and found us and made pics with him and talked to him
What a wonderful person to take so much time for a kid he didn't even know
We saw laughter and huge smiles during the entire show
The 3 of us had fun and our little one left saying that Jody was his new best friend
The show is fabulous and the horses are beautiful
This place is a fun place for all ages
Tip: There is a lot of food served it was a lot more than I could eat but good

I attended this event twice in two months and was amazed each time. This is an event that excited both the you and old alike. I found the setup, the meal and the schedule all to my liking. I have shared my experience with many of my friends and family since I have returned and I have help some receive tickets that they can use at a later date.
Tip: To purchase tickets in advance and arrive early.

"Excellent Entertainment"
August, 2016
We had a wonderful time @ Medieval Times. This was my second time,, the first was in 1989! Then as now it was an excellent evening with great food and knights that made the show! Of course I must not forget the horses. Well trained and well taken care of. I did not see one person who was not well pleased. I felt that I got my monies worth. If you plan to be anywhere near any one of the cities where there is a Medieval Times are located, and you only have time for one event, I highly recommend that you see this one. You won't be disappointed, I guarantee!
Tip: Plan for great entertainment.

"Great Family Fun!!"
June, 2016
This is something everyone must experience at least once in their life! This was my first time at a Medieval Times with my sons and mother in law, but I can say I was impressed. The knights were great performers, the horses were absolutely beautiful. The food was really good and our server was fun. If you go with older or disabled people, just tell them at the door for seating that requires no steps..The staff was extremely helpful when dealing with disabled people!! I would highly recommend this show.

"Fun for all!"
June, 2016
Medieval Times at Myrtle Beach was really a fantastic time! Went with my two kids (8 and 12) my parents and brother. There were enthusiastic actors, no long lines, good food, helpful and polite servers, beautiful horses (who stole the show I might add), and of course the skillful and well choriagraphed stage performances by the Knights! Everyone in my party loved the show. We had a blast cheering for our Blue Knight. Of course they get you with alcoholic drinks and the photographs!!!
Tip: Tips are not included! Be prepared to leave a tip for the servers $5 a person was recommended!

"Birthday Celebration"
February, 2016
This is the first time we attended Medieval Times in Myrtle Beach. This was a special request for my daughters 11th birthday and we weren't disappointed. We had great seats cheering on the Black & White Knight in the middle of the arena. The kids loved that everything had to be eaten with their hands. Reservemyrtlebeach.com had the best prices on tickets and the saving allowed us to spend the extra money on Souvenirs.
Tip: Parking was easy an accesible and the lines weren't long at all.

We have enjoyed Dixie Stampede many times and thought this dinner and show would be just as good. The food was fine. However, it was obvious that the horses in the show were not being well taken care of. One was limping and another was frothing and drooling throughout the performance. The hawk appeared to have been injured when the trainer threw something that got tangled in its legs and it crashed into the wall. He was holding it upside down as he walked off with the wings flapping. We can't believe the careless treatment of these beautiful animals. Never again.

"Money Trap!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 06, 2017 NEW
Keep in mind your on vacation, this being said money just keeps flowing out of your pocket!! I'm sorry I always have to consider additional cost having a large family ! Here's a break down on what to expect. The tickets were $50.00 dollars each (apparently there are coupons or codes available) because we paid full price we were upgraded to VIP Royalty!! (this meant preferred seating and a towel and souvenir banner-Which you can of course upgrade for $3.00 to a larger flag!!) Some people pay more for VIP seats. An additional $12-22 per person will get you one of several package upgrades. More perks are included the higher package you purchase.As soon as you walk in there is a girl selling light up crown wands and swords for $22.00 each (there was a $16.00 sword option which was very flimsy and cheap.) then you buy a drink in a souvenir cup($16.00-$20.00) refills $3.00). While waiting in the holding area before being seated they are selling all manner of things(crowns figurines, shields, hats etc.)all of which the kids can beg and pled for!! There is a dungeon for an additional $2.00 a person ( DO NOT BE SCAMED !! The entire thing is less than a 10 foot hall on an "L" shape. It has a few torture deices and pictures. Hardly a "museum"!! Oh lets not forget the picture! With the King $ 22.00 an additional one can be purchased for $10.00.Our Showtime was at 6pm, doors opened at 4:45pm. We arrived at 5pm to a small line to put our names in and got our table assignment. The show was fun and involved horses ,knights ,a falconer. The arena smelled terrible(horse urine) so if you have a sensitive smeller you may want to think twice. The dinner was nothing to write home about, it was soup, chicken, potatoes, half ear corn, a piece of cake.(of course you eat with your hands(Silverware was not yet invented) There are many opportunities if you wish to have your child singled out or mentioned. They can be knighted in front of the crowd, among other things. Again, more cash!!There are 2 large doors on either side that have plaques above that represent your kingdom color There are four color areas. (thus stated on your table seating card). Just look at what plaques are represented above each door and that is the door you will be going through when the time comes. Again, since you already have your table, there is no need to rush. It's really nice. We sat in a corner of the arena (near the king and princess first row up and were very happy with our seats. The view was great and I wouldn't ever worry about it if we were to go again in the future. Although, even the top seats weren't bad . The arena isn't that big. There is a little story involved and the knights choose a lady in the crowed to represent during the tournament.The show is 2 hours long. Our granddaughter was chosen by the red knight to be "his" queen of the tournament, of course this involved pictures which we of course bought. If you consider it dinner and a show then it was worth the price (they have to take care of the animals and train so there is a cost in that). It is something that we would only do once but being on vacation it was a nice family activity enjoyed by all.The medieval theme runs throughout the decor, the program and. the meal. Kids and adults in our family loved the excitement of being involved in such a fun program.

We have visited Medieval Times several times with various family members Although it is a bit pricey, it really is worth every penny. The fun and excitement begin the moment you enter the place The medieval theme runs throughout the decor, the program and. the meal. Kids and adults in our family loved the excitement of being involved in such a fun program. Finally, the food is prepared and served in a timely manner --and it is quite tasty. Nice place to celebrate a family event which is made even more fun as they are glad to recognize the celebrant(s).

Reviewed January 01, 2017 NEW
This was my family's first time ever going to anything like this experience. We had read TripAdvisor before we booked and had seen many speak about the crappy food. We thought the food was excellent! RESERVATIONS/COUPON CODES We booked a night ahead online to go on a weeknight during the Christmas Break. There are SEVERAL online codes available to get the price knocked down. Look around! The hotel we were vacationing at also offered a code that gave us $39.95 for adults and $19.95 for kids 12 and under. Do some price shopping online. It's takes 10 minutes. VIP PACKAGES Some people pay more for VIP seats. An additional $12-22 per person will get you one of several package upgrades. All of which include preferred seating (central auditorium), a VIP lanyard to show everyone you paid too much, a cheering banner and a knight rally towel. More perks are included the higher package you purchase. ARRIVAL Our showtime was a Wednesday at 6pm, doors opened at 4:45pm. We arrived at 5pm to a small line to put our names in and got our table assignment. ***Can I say this is great? I love it that your table is assigned to you first thing and you don't need to worry about it after you check in. We were assigned Blue Table 8. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Depending on how early you arrive, after getting the table assignment and before dinner, you have some time. They have a large gift shop "holding area" that allows you to have your kids beg for anything from light up drinks to swords and crowns. I have to admit, I was tempted... to ask how much everything was. And I did! We had time. LOL. Drinks went from $15 - $20 something. One plastic sword went for $30. Everything was Disney World pricing.I believe the least expensive thing you could buy was a $5 color flag that represented your kingdom (we were Blue Table 8). That wasn't too bad. But we didn't need one. Our hands and voices work fine for cheering. There are many opportunities if you wish to have your child singled out or mentioned. They can be knighted in front of the crowd, among other things. Again, more cash? SEATING We really liked how the seating worked when the time came. There are 2 large doors on either side that have plaques above that represent your kingdom color (thus stated on your table seating card). Just look at what plaques are represented above each door and that is the door you will be going through when the time comes. Again, since you already have your table, there is no need to rush. It's really nice. We sat in a corner of the arena at least 3 rows up and were very happy with our seats. The view was great and I wouldn't ever worry about it if we were to go again in the future. Although, I think ours were better than nose bleed seats, but I'm sure they weren't bad either. The arena isn't that big. FOOD. The menu is what the menu is. They don't take your order. It's set. Although, they do ask if you have any food allergies or if you are a vegetarian. I had looked on TripAdvisor before our visit and many people complained about the food. Maybe my expectations were lowered, but I was pleasantly surprised with the food. I ate every bite. I thought it was delicious! My kids were happy with all of it too! I won't go into details on the food because you get what you get and I think it's fun to enjoy the experience of surprise. The only thing I wished our waiter would have remembered was a the salt/pepper. I saw them on the tables in front of us, but not on ours. One item could've used a little salt, but it was still good without. SHOW I won't give it away, but we were entertained! We had a great time! We really let loose and got into it. Our kids had SO much fun! We all did. What a riot. The show is 2 hours long. I feel they did a nice job of not going too short and not going too long. TIP Although you have already paid in full for your show, the waiter will hand you a small tip tray at the end of the dinner show that reads: "It was our pleasure serving you! We are often asked about gratuities. No gratuity or service charge has been added to your bill. Excellent service is customarily acknowledged by a gratuity to your server. " ***Make sure everyone in your party WASHES their hands before you go in to eat. You'll thank me for this tip. HAVE FUN!

Brought our large (10) family to dinner at Medieval Times. I had purchased tickets online, but they noticed I was Active Duty Navy and they upgraded me to the VIP package for my whole family free. Thank you for a fun and very entertaining night. Highly recommend this for anyone wanting to combine a meal with something fun for the family.
