"Good food and Show for all ages.. No personal space."

The show is great for all ages. I took my two year old son. He loved the food and stayed entertained throughout the show. I've been to other Medieval times in CA, However the one in IL really packs people in. I am 5'2'' and 102 lbs i didn't ever fit in the seat. My husband and father had a very hard time eating as they could move their arms without hitting the person next to them. I highly recommend coupon hunting for this (Retail me not) show. We got in half price with coup found online. Over-all the food was good. Chicken was cooked perfect and the soup was delicious.

"Kids loved this, entertaining and worth a visit "

Tickets are expensive, but you can usually find a coupon code. They recommend you arrive 75 minute early, but you do not need to. The doors opened 20 minutes prior. If you arrive too early, your only option will be to linger in the hall filled with shops trying to tempt you to buy souvenirs. Our boys ages 7 and 4 years old loved the show. Some of the battle scenes are predictable, but kids don't mind and were captivated. The show is nearly 2 hours long, so I did feel we got our money's worth... including re dinner, which wasn't bad. Just remember, you are eating with your hands! No utensils. Overall I recommend visiting this attraction once. We had a good time.

The food was flavorful and the service was timed very well around the show so that we could enjoy the entire performance. This is a great location off the highway - easy to get to. This is a place for all ages, but particularly enjoyable for boys (even teenagers!).
