from Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament California
Medieval Times is more than the nation's #1 and longest running dinner attraction - it's a living link to the past where the glory, chivalry and valor of old burst to life in authentic pageantry and thrilling tournament action.

While guests enjoy a hearty four-course medieval-style banquet (without silverware), six brave knights compete in games of skill astride magnificent Andalusian stallions. Lances splinter against shields of steel, broad swords spark and a champion emerges, to the cheers of the enthusiastic crowd. The spectacle unfolds nightly inside a fully enclosed European-style castle.

It was a bit of waiting time before going in to the arena to get seated. But overall the show was exciting and entertaining.

This was my 2nd time going to something like this. Medieval Times truly disappoints compared to Dolly Partons Dixie Stampeed in Branson, Missouri. At this dinner, it was very hard to understand the main guy doing all the dialog. The riders on the horses couldn't 'act ' very well. The food was good considering. I would not recommend going here.

We went as a family to Medieval Times while on vacation. We have been to one other Medieval Times and the story line was pretty much the same. They are trying to find the best knight in the kingdom. We still had fun even though it was the same story line. It's fun to watch the knights compete. The crowd gets into it. This isn't something I would do every week, but every once in a while it's a nice treat. They take your picture and sell it to you when you walk in. They sell a lot of light up toys for the kids. I didn't buy any drinks, but I'm sure they are expensive. We did buy some t-shirts which were 2 for $25. If you haven't been, it's worth going at least once. Look for discounts and coupons online before you go.

A thoroughly entertaining evening was had by our whole family at Medieval Times. The show itself was suited for all ages, and included some really great horsemanship. The meal served was surprisingly tasty, and the service was friendly and prompt.

Our family of five LOVED this dinner & a show experience! Would definitely do it again, not just a been there / done that thing. We weren’t sure what to expect, but we were very impressed. The food was delicious - our youngest can be pretty picky, but even he said it was the ‘best chicken ever!’ Portions were extremely generous - we couldn’t finish it all! The show was amazing!! We purchased closer seats & they were well worth it! Overall a really fun, family night :) Also, it’s located really close to Disneyland, so it’s not far to go if your staying in that area.

This show is incredible, I highly recommend it. Definitely, try to get to the castle as early as possible to get the best seats. There is a bar and a shop that you can look at before the show. They also have some of the show animals that you can see before the show which is so cool. The show will feel long for children but it is great for teenagers and adults. The food is good not great but there is a lot of it. Make friends with the waiter. They are the best!!
