I have never been to Medieval Times so I was super excited to make it a first time experience together for myself and the boys. We didn’t really know what to expect, but as soon as we set our eyes on the castle I knew it was going to be marvelous! We got in and we’re given our table tickets that showed we would be rooting for the yellow knight so we were off to get our yellow crowns that the kids absolutely loved. We walked around as their was so much to see, like the huge variety of swords they were selling. We were told what entrance to go through so we could sit on our section where only the yellow knight team would be sitting. I loved how each section was lit up with its team color. Our hostess was amazing and super helpful through out the whole time. She got us some booster seats to help the boys feel more comfortable in their seats, and she got us straws for the boys cups so they wouldn’t spill anything in the dark.
Let’s talk food. As it was honestly Mom and Dads favorite part. They started us off with some yummy tomato soup and garlic bread. Then a little after that they came around with the huge piece of chicken which was perfectly seasoned and some corn and potato wedges. It was just absolutely delicious that even my little picky eaters devoured it. Mom and Dad took full advantage that you could order bar drinks at your seats so we decided to enjoy a beer, which came in a nice souvenir cup! As the boys loved their lemonades that were just right, not too sour not too sweet. After the food their was dessert and coffee. Just when you thought it couldn’t get better they bring out the butter loaf cake, and it was a great sweet treat to end the show with.
I loved that everything was made so convenient, everything was brung to us, very fast and sufficiently. We didn’t have to do anything but sit their and enjoy ourselves. Which is honestly the best thing about the experience. As a mom that has gone to plenty of shows with my kids, standing in long lines to then figure out how I’m going to get us to our seats with my hands completely full I loved the simplicity that Medieval Times gives us parents who already walk in with our hands full. It was the easiest show we have been to where I really just sat back and enjoyed it just as much as they did with no hustle and bustle required!
I have honestly no complaints at all. The show had us mesmerized and the food had our bellies happy. The whole staff was friendly and super helpful at all times. Very well organized, so when you do go please don’t forget to tip your hostess generously because they work very hard to make your time there memorable and very easy. We will be going back again for sure as Jace is now learning all about the Middle Ages in class! He was so excited to tell his classmates about the experience and all he learned from it. It’s definitely something every child would love and remember forever. So make it a family day, and add it on to their joyous childhood memories. You can even celebrate your birthday.
