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

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.

"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!

My family has been to the Dollywood Productions of the Dixie Stampede and the Pirates Voyage and they by far out way my experience at Medieval Times. My soup was cold, and for fifty five dollars a head I feel they can do better than garlic bread and lemon pound cake. Also, the chairs are packed so you had to crawl over them to get in. That was ridiculous. Also, the show was mostly horses dancing and the people talking was muffled and you couldn’t understand their words. My son did enjoy this experience because the green Knight came and visited where we were staying before and then that is the side we got but since I have seen how smooth and effortless a Dollywood Production can be for better food, lower prices, and no flashing toys constantly being pushed and alcohol being consumed, I was very unimpressed. I won’t spend my money there again!

Visited medieval times while in myrtle beach this week and kiddos (ages 7,7,10, and 13) really enjoyed it. We were cheering on the yellow knight so we were at the back of the arena. It was hard to decipher words at times but the kids were able to follow the story line.its a little different than what It was a few years ago when we went, which was good. I would recommend to visit, but look for coupons or online deals.

The show at Medieval Times was great. They keep the crowd into it. The dinner that is served is also very good. They even had something to eat for our daughter, who has a severe dairy allergy. They substituted two items, the bread and the cake, with hummus and vegetables and Italian ice. She loved it. Thank you to the waitress for treating us so well.
