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.

"Second Time!"
August, 2018
This is our second time seeing Medieval Times Tournament. The show has changed and not for the good. We couldn’t hear nothing that they were saying. Our server Dillon was slow and rude when we asked why we weren’t getting food as fast as the pretty server to our left was bringing. Gift shop was extremely high. We will not be back. If you’re looking for more bang for your buck try Pirates Show. Entertaining from the door to the show.

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.

Beautiful arena, the front entrance could use a little more appeal for photo purposes. Overall I had a awesome time, it was my second visit and it was just as entertaining. The servers are very courteous, the menu seems to be the same. More options would be great. My chicken was blood running undercooked “gross” my server was nice enough to get me another one, it was not done properly either “the odds” however it was way better than the first. I highly recommend this place it’s great for all ages, I’m definitely going back. I forgot to add, one off my party skipped out on me. I explained my situation as I was checking in, because I booked through them, they were nice enough to give me gift shop or bar credit for the price of the ticket.

"Awesome show!!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 10, 2018 NEW
We recently went with several other couples to the show, while in Myrtle Beach. The food was marvelous!! Eating with our hands only seemed to enhance the experience! I was surprised that this show could captivate a group of adults as it did ours! The wait staff was also supreme! EVERYONE was in character. Each person we came in contact with was very polite and courteous. The entire castle was sparkling clean. I had never been to a dinner theater before, but this one has me wanting to try many more! We will be back for sure!!

"Great Family Outing"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 02, 2018 NEW
We took our grandsons (8, 6 & 4) to this dinner show and it was worth. As some may already know, you don't get utensils for your meal and I was a little concerned about the grandson who can't stand to get his hands dirty, but even he enjoyed eating with his fingers. They liked the fact that they had a "team" they could cheer for and the show kept their interest. And for those who love souvenirs, there's a plenty! If you're looking for something family friendly when visiting Myrtle Beach, I would definitely recommend this venue.
