Memories of Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament

Have you ever been to a Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament? I went a few years ago I went with a group of female friends and remember it was an unique experience. Mostly because I had to eat with my hands. No forks, knives or spoons! Add to that seeing a live Medieval joust and swordplay literally before me and I can't wait to visit again!

Since it's been a while since I visited a Medieval Times, I checked to see what has changed with performances. Did you know they've introduced their first ever female lead character - a Queen!

"Where previously our female characters played in more supportive roles, we are now showing a woman fully in charge, a woman whose authority is sometimes challenged, but she quickly rises to the occasion as a strong leader, squelching opposition," says Jon Speier, Medieval Times senior vice president and general manager.

Also a 80,000 square-foot facility has opened a few years back, which features an impressive arena with seating for up to 1,350 people. The fully enclosed, climate-controlled castle houses an elaborately decorated Hall of Arms, Museum of Torture, and stables facility.

Clearly I'm over due for a updated visit to Medieval Times. This time I'll take along my son. The show is very family friendly.

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament is an exciting evening of quality entertainment based upon the majesty of the Middle Ages. Guests experience spectacular pageantry, dramatic horsemanship, breathtaking swordplay, and falconry while feasting on a four-course banquet served in true medieval, pre-silverware fashion. The experience culminates in an authentic jousting tournament between six brave Knights of the Realm.
