I chose this for my husband's birthday as he loves Renaissance and medieval things in history. We were told to be checked in no later than 6:15 PM, so we arrived at 5:50. Unfortunately, we had to stand in a hallway and wait until 6:15 to be let into the area of the "castle". I am semi handicapped so it was very uncomfortable standing there for this amount of time. Once they let us in, we were checked in and told we had to walk around, shop the gift shop and/or mini torture museum until 7:15. So again another hr. of walking/standing. We did see just before letting us into the arena that there were some tables we could have sat at while waiting in the inner area. As far as the food, it was great, you have to eat with your fingers, but they give you a large napkin and come later with a large warm wet wipe also. The show itself was good, my husband liked it a lot. My only suggestion would be to serve all menu items faster. We first got a slice of garlic toast, then 15 min later a bowl of soup, about 30 min later out chicken, then an ear of corn and lastly a slice of potato. Not someplace I would go often, but in a few yrs, I would go again.

Haven't been to Medieval Times in about 15 years and was excited to take my family and grandchildren for first time. I was worried they would not like the food or be bored. They were not! They were so excited, so into it and LOVED the food. It was so much fun watching them cheer, get involved and into the show. Never a dull moment. Very audience involved event! Staff is amazing! This was one of the highlights of our entire trip to the Chicago/Schaumburg area. Will definitely recommend and go again!
