Medieval Times is a great place to go to have a family night. You get to enjoy dinner and entertainment, making it way better than sitting in front of the TV. The kids will actually be engaged in what’s going on. Medieval Times is fun for all ages. They have jousting, hand to hand combat, horses, and even a Queen for those little princesses out there. In the new show after 34 years, the king has died and his daughter has taken reign as queen, taking over the show.
“Where previously our female characters played in more supportive roles, we are now showing a woman fully in charge, a woman whose authority is sometimes challenged, but she quickly rises to the occasion as a strong leader, squelching opposition,” says Jon Speier, Medieval Times senior vice president and general manager.
The arena is broken up by the colors of the knights. Our knight was the black and white one and he was awesome! With the new show, the Queen is hosting us and she brought in six of the best knights in all of the lands to battle it out. It wasn’t just jousting, they had all types of renaissance games. After every game, the queen gave each knight flowers that they gave to lucky princesses in the crowd. I won’t lie, I got really into the tournament. I was cheering on our knight and booing the others.
Our knight defeated everyone including the red and yellow knight who turned bad and accused the queen of not belonging on the throne because she was a woman.
During the show, you get to feast like royalty, Medieval Times serves you a four-course meal suited for kings and queens. You start out with tomato bisque soup and garlic bread. Then half a chicken with a potato and corn on the cob. Now, remember that this is the renaissance time and they do not give you utensils. Also, they will accommodate anyone who is vegetarian, or gluten-free.
Before The Show
Since we were VIP, before the show we got to meet some of the horses that were in the show that night. We learned from the horse trainer that it can take up to one year to get a horse ready for the show.
