Most of us have heard about or know of Medieval Times. After all, the Medieval themed dinner theater is pretty epic. Even Jimmy Fallon and Post Malone are fans and enjoyed getting into the Medieval spirit! When we recently went for the first time, it was clear just how plentiful the family fun at Medieval Times really is.
With two boys, ages 7 and 4, every day is spent staging large-scale imaginary (mostly) battles. They were so excited at the idea of seeing a real jousting and sword fighting battle on horses take place.
Our Evening at Medieval Times
When we arrived at “The Castle”, we were greeted at check-in by a host in costume where we took a family photo and were given our crown. The color of your crown designates who you will cheer for and what theater section you sit in. We were team blue and pretty pumped about it. Definitely make sure to arrive a bit early. The whole family all enjoyed exploring the lobby festivities, the bar (for Mom and Dad) and gift shop area.
Once the theater doors opened, we found our seats where our menu and place setting were set out. Our server introduced themselves (in costume and very much in theme) and got our section pretty excited for team Blue!
The Medieval Times Show
The theater was so much larger than I had imagined. It was decorated and designed so well, the perfect backdrop for a dramatic story. It was pretty clear that this was going to be an exciting night. The horses are gorgeous and come thundering down at full speed. It’s a sight to behold! The knights, skilled riders, lights and special effects all start to unveil a story that had the kids entranced. And of course the jousting and battle scenes were extremely dramatic in the best way. We were constantly waving our blue flags and cheering on our knight!
Dinner at Medieval Times
While the show is happening, dinner is being served. Everything had very cute names such as “Dragon’s Blood Soup” aka Tomato Bisque. The food is meant to be sipped or eaten with hands only. No forks at this table. A fun twist for the kids!
The food was both family and finger friendly. Dinner included tomato soup, roasted chicken, a seasoned potato, seasoned bread, corn on the cob, and a dessert. So tasty and everyone was happy. Which lets face it, is all this mama really wants.
After more cheering and dramatic stunts the blue knight won! We were ecstatic and I’ve never seen Max wave a flag so enthusiastically. It was adorable and a night we will truly never forget.
Family Fun at Medieval Times
Make sure to check the website to find a Medieval Times near you or your next vacation destination! We went to the Baltimore, MD location and there are several others. Not only does it make a great family outing, taking a few friends or doing the birthday package would make a special and memorable party. With both of my boys having December birthdays, I’m always searching for new and fun ways to celebrate.
Hang on to your helmets and enjoy the family fun at Medieval Times!
