"Excellent performance"

We took our 4 yr old granddaugther there along with her mom and dad and other grandparents. I would say I was surprised at the high quality of the horsemanship and the show. The opening --complete with fog-- is awesome. Even if you are not a horse aficionado you can appreciate the stallions and their riders. The food was very good, much better than expected. I only had one small reservation--it was very hard to hear the 'chancellor' at times, but it might have been his English (real?!) accent. We got their early and were also treated to an excellent high school theatre choir (from Indianopolis). Would definitely go badk.

We took our nephew and wife and son to this great show which is expensive but worth the money. The fight scenes are wonderful and must have taken a lot of practice to do. The food is okay but the program and the horses are what you go to see. Carter got so rapped up in the show that he yelled at our knight, watch out he is getting up when our Knight had thought he had won and turned his back on his opponent. Stay after the show and the cast will come out to the lobby and you can get pictures.

"So Much Fun!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 29, 2017
Medieval Times has been on our "to do" list for a long time and it was even better than we had hoped for! We had so much fun from beginning to end! (By we, I mean my 40-year-old self and my two best friends who are in their mid 30's! This place is not just for kids!) We had already updated with the Royalty Package (Priority seating, banner, photo, etc) and then upgraded when we got there so we could get knighted! Is it pricy? Yes...our three alcoholic beverages were over $40 (they definitely did not skimp on the alcohol) but is it worth it? Yes! (Book online ahead of time and check for special savings on admission) The food was really good, the show was extremely entertaining and everyone working there that we encountered was fun and accommodating. Dessert that night was lemon pound cake and our "man wench" Tim brought me a piece complete with whipped topping and candles because we were celebrating my bachelorette party! We also enjoyed the photo opp with the knights after the show. Love, love, love this place!
