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 cancellation 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.

Had never been to Medieval Times so wasn't sure what to expect. The show was great from start to finish! Love the way the crowd gets involved! The food was excellent, the servers were very attentive, and the whole experience was just awesome. I would definitely go back again!

Tip: There is a bit of a wait once you get in the building and there is not seating for everyone while you wait to be seated inside where the show takes place. If you are unable to stand for awhile, you might want to consider bringing one of those small foldup cane seats.

"Medieval Fun"
July, 2017
My family enjoyed the dinner and the show. Since the theme is medieval times, they did not give us any utensils to eat our dinner with. Everyone is given a crown and the color of your crown represents the color of your knight. As the knights compete in the tournament, everyone would cheer for them. My mom and my niece each received a flower from our knight. They both were happy about it. The actors did a great job performing the fight scene. I was surprised that they used real weapons. My family would go again. Maybe next time our knight will win the tournament.

"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

The hubby and I have been before but decided to take my mother in law this year. The show was good , nothing extraordinary and the food was decent. We upgraded to the VIP package and were pleased with the goodies that the package included. My mother in law very much enjoyed the show but we felt like it was a little lack luster and sort of drags on. Don't get me wrong you'll enjoy yourself but there are other options for entertainment with dinner that we enjoyed more

"Surprisingly good chicken "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed August 10, 2018 NEW
This was a fun activity with the family. Our dining section was loud and fun cheering for our knight which made it more fun. The soup and bread were mediocre, the chicken was very flavorful and juicy. Dessert was just ok. Mason our server was attentive and fun. We knew about the heavy pressure to buy extras and bar drinks so we weren't surprised and just said no. Over a fun "knight" out.

"Still a good time"

Reviewed August 08, 2018 NEW
We visit this show once every other year, and the price break this season brought us back again. It was especially fun since we had a 23 year old visitor who had never been to Medieval Times. I enjoyed his reactions almost as much as the show. So if you have never experienced it, be sure to go. The food is consistent (although I do truthfully miss the apple tart desert that the used to serve). The new show is ok, but the queen needs a better mic ( or some diction coaching) since we had a very hard time understanding what she said. The knights are still charming and most of them work the crowd well. (go blue knight!) All in all, it is a really fun evening, especially if it is the first time for you.
