What is Medieval Times? It's an immersive experience, transporting guests back in time to an 11th century Spanish royal court. While guests dine on a four course meal (eaten with their hands), they are entertained by knights on horseback competing in a variety of skill-based games, culminating in the Champion's Jousting Tournament. There is also an overhead show starring talented birds of prey, and various displays of the horses' own skills. Each guest party is assigned a knight for whom they will cheer, and seated in that knight's section of the hall. It is really so much fun to cheer on your knight as you enjoy your meal. The energy of the crowd is awesome!
What did our boys think? They loved it all. Eating with their hands was certainly a treat, something frowned upon at home, And all the cheering and combat was right up their alley. Combine that with swords and daggers from the gift shop, and this was definitely a great night out. The last time we went Boo opted for a knighting ceremony, which we bought as part of a package with a Crusader's costume ($30). That also got his name read out as a greeting at the feast. If you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or really anything, definitely consider adding on a Celebration Package to your night. This comes with preferred seating, a personalised announcement during the show, slice of cake, framed photo and more.

Although he didn't win the overall tournament, he fought admirably and did us all proud.
