from Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament Illinois
Medieval Times is more than the nation's #1 and longest running dinner attraction - it's a living link to the past where the glory, chivalry and valor of old burst to life in authentic pageantry and thrilling tournament action.

While guests enjoy a hearty four-course medieval-style banquet (without silverware), six brave knights compete in games of skill astride magnificent Andalusian stallions. Lances splinter against shields of steel, broad swords spark and a champion emerges, to the cheers of the enthusiastic crowd. The spectacle unfolds nightly inside a fully enclosed European-style castle.

Plan to arrive early, seating is first come first serve and to obtain the best seats.

Food was decent, show was great. Price wasn't cheap. Worth it for the experience. The royalty upgrade was worth the extra. You can get decent deals online, make sure you check to save.

"Birthday Fun"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

We chose this for our son's 7th birthday celebration. We went all in and did the celebration package (hint--if you join the birthday club you get free standard admission). The show was enthralling for our son who loved the knights and horses. The food was average. We've also gone to the Dixie Stampede in Tennessee and their food is significantly better & you get more. The DS also has better crowd flow where those leaving the show do not have to elbow their way through the crowd waiting for the next show. The waiting area hit 80 degrees with all the people stuffed into it and was beyond uncomfortable. I'm not entirely sure if we will be back.

This was truly an unusual dining experience. The show was totally entertaining and action packed. The food was okay. The food servers remained in character through out. The performers were available after dinner for questions and photos.

"Son and Grandson liked it!"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed February 10, 2017 NEW
I've taken both my son when he was young and now my nine year old grandson. He was not anxious to go but by the time we were there a little while you could see his interest improving! When we made a bathroom visit I was afraid he was going to run someone over because he ran so fast back to see the knights begin fighting with their armor. That was quite a change from his original demeanor. Food was good not great. Entertaining for children especially. My grandson enjoyed viewing the real swords and armor in the lobby.
