My wife and I went to Medieval Times recently and had a great time! One of the funniest things that happened was that while waiting in the main lobby to be seated, we noticed that the fanfare from the trumpets being played was the victory tune from the Final Fantasy games. Hahahaha. We thought that was a fun touch. We both went and purchased the VIP Kings package online. It was costly but worth the price. We had front row seats, practically in the middle of the arena. The show started of slow but was excellent and entertaining. The entire show was fun and worth going to, and the food was excellent although our Pepsi was a bit flat but that wasn't really much of an issue. Our server was very friendly as well. A couple things that did disappoint me were that although we had the VIP Kings package, it did not include $2.00 admission to the torture dungeon Two dollars might not seem like much, but after paying 75+ per ticket to get the VIP package, you'd think a 2 dollar admission would be no big deal to include. Also, when seated in the front row with VIP access you receive a little banner to wave for your sections Knight. You can use that banner and trade it in to get 2 dollars off a 5 dollar banner that's a bit more elaborate to use to cheer for your knight. Might seem like a small issue, but to me it should just be included in the VIP package to begin with. Those two items, the banner, and the admission to the dungeon would have made it feel much more "VIP" in my opinion. Over all it was a great time and you can tell that they put a lot of work into the show. The horses were absolutely beautiful as well. It was a little off putting to see some of them drooling so much but looking into it it seems that that isn't really a health issue for the horses as much as it is just something they sometimes do I believe due to the reins being attached how they are.

Knights! Horses! Jousting! It was a fun experience for all - from my 5 year old grandson to the "grandparents." We cheered for our team and had a grand time.
