Medieval Times – A Place For the Whole Family

This past weekend we celebrated son’s 17th birthday at the Medieval times dinner and tournament. It was a big weekend for us after all my baby boy is almost an adult. I still can’t believe 17 years have passed by. Needless to say, we wanted to make this weekend memorable so we took Teen Boy to his favorite place the Medieval Times.

Medieval Times

What is Medieval Times

Medieval Times is a family-friendly dinner show featuring staged medieval-style games, sword-fighting, and jousting. These medieval acts are performed by a cast of actors and horses. There are Nine (9) North American locations for Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament. We of corse went to the one in Orlando as it’s the closest to us.

The Medieval Times dinner show is a two-hour medieval jousting tournament with 6 competing knights using real weapons and beautiful horses. In the beginning, you are introduced to the beauty of the horses as they dance for you. That is followed by some beautiful flight of a falcon. However, the main show is all about the knights competing for the hand of the fair maiden.

Medieval Times


It the tradition of the Medieval time to eat with your hands so be prepared. If this is something that really isn’t your thing you can ask for silverware and it will be provided.  However, I find submerging yourself in all thing Medieval is quite fun. When you arrive your menu will be on the napkin and it will include the following items.

  • Tomato Bisque
  • Warm Baked Bread
  • Roasted Chicken
  • Sweet Buttered Corn
  • Herb Potato
  • Pastry of the Castle
  •  Beverage (Water, tea, lemonade or coffee)
  • Full open bar available for additional charge
  • Also, note vegetarian options are available upon request

Things you should know before you go

  • The dinner and show will last around two hours.  It is recommended you arrive early to look around the castle grounds. There is a lot to see and learn here.
  • Doors open 1.5 hours before the show start time.  This allows you time to shop for souvenirs.
  • You are assigned a table color at the ticket counter. They call you by your Knight’s color.
  • All VIP table holders will go first settling into the front row tables. Be sure to be near the front of your color section because even though you are assigned a color you are not assigned a seat.
  • There are handicap seating and a handicap entryway. Like VIP Handicap people are seated first.
  • There are 6 colored Knights. .Your Knight’s color is randomly selected.
  • Tipping is not included in your ticket price. So be sure to plan for tipping your server at the end of the show.
  • Parking is free.

My Final Thoughts

The Medieval Times is a great place for young and old alike.  Not only is this show action packed but the food is delicious. We liked that our crowd was really into the battle from booing for the opposing Knights to cheering for our Knight. On this visit, we were given the Red Knight to cheer on and I am happy to say that he won. It was a close battle but in the end, he won the hand of te fair maiden. I am pleased to say that son had the best birthday ever and that the Medieval Times is definitely a place the teens in your family would very much enjoy. as would everyone else.
