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.
Our kids talked about going to Medieval Times before we even got to the beach. Luckily, we went with locals and got a huge discount. It is very organized. The food is decent. The kids loved the show. They were yelling, cheering and booing. They had an awesome time. There wasn't as much action as we expected, but it was still good. We went to the pirate show a few years ago, and it definitely had more action throughout the show.

Beware the "arrive 90 minutes early, there's plenty to do" come on. The only activities during those 90 minutes are either drinking or buying souvenirs. There is a "dungeon" you can check out but it costs extra :( The food is average but the servers are nice. The show itself was awesome. As someone who makes her living with horses I could completely appreciate the amount of training that went into the Andalusians they used. Airs above the ground?? Even in hand it was a treat. I could also appreciate the choreography that went into the action. Fake weapons or not, if someone's timing is off people will get hurt. Highly recommend the show, just don't worry about arriving 90 minutes early unless you want to spend money.

Medieval Times is one of my husband's and my favorite places to go. The food is always great, and the entertainment is spot on. Watch as the falconer demonstrates the falcon's keen eye, horses prance, and knights joust! It has something for everyone. Great for kids and grown-ups alike! (Full bar also available)
I never get tired of Medieval Times. I've been to the Myrtle Beach installation twice and once in Chicago, each time has me cheering and on my toes!
