Description

from Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament- Baltimore
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.

The Feast:
The menu at Medieval Times consists of garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, herb-basted potatoes, the pastry of the Castle, coffee and two rounds of select beverages. A vegetarian meal is available upon request.

In addition, our cocktail servers will be making the rounds and are happy to deliver any spirits from the bar that you request for an additional fee.

We've always been very curious about this show so when we found ourselves looking for things to do in the area while we were visiting family we decided to take a chance and try it out. We had our three-year-old who enjoys new experiences and this show did not disappoint; it kept her attention the entire time. We opted for the afternoon show after her nap (1pm on wed, 4pm on Thursday) although they have an evening show about every night. Check their website or the groupon page to see if you can use any discounts. Then use the call center and give them the groupon code or the discount code from the website and they can apply it to the ticket sale so that all members of your party can sit together if they have different discounts for different age groups online. The call center operator was very helpful and she also recommended the blue section of the arena so you can see the action head on and face the Queen. Since we also had a senior in our group, We learned you can request for handicap seating if you don't want your party to walk stairs. But honestly there are only 5 rows so not many stairs to go up or down as you enter at the top of the arena. When we arrived the lady at the ticket counter was kind enough to give us the 1st row. I think if the arena is not so full, you can request closer seating, it is worth the attempt, But if you would rather save your money for drinks or souvenirs then the VIP seating is not necessarily too advantagious as you can see the arena from anywhere. The middle sections are the red and yellow section and black-and-white section, however the blue and yellow sections face the Queen and you do not have to move your head back-and-forth like a tennis match to view the action if you are seated in the sections. If more than one of you is drinking alcohol I would suggest buying a whole bottle of wine and let them bring it down to the arena once you get seated. It's nice to have a glass of wine along with the food that they serve which, you have read in other reviews, is (surprisingly) good. The show is extremely entertaining and the master of ceremonies tries to get the crowd involved by assigning each section to the knights that you cheer for. Unfortunately, our blue Knight did not win a single joust. I think they do switch around the winners but it would have been nice if they had choreographed the Blue knight to win at least ONE GAME so my daughter have cheered even louder :) At one point the master of ceremonies was blocking our view for about 7 minutes so it would have been good for him to take his horse and move around a little while the nights were defending the Queen's honor. The entire storyline addresses the question of whether chivalry is alive or dead which gets you invested in the action, but at times it would have been nice to hear the commentary more clearly as the microphones were muddled a little bit. The food portions were pretty generous but things are very timely (and everyone is in a hurry) and there is no opportunity to ask for anything at all even if you wanted to. However, you are so transfix on the show that you're not really thinking about more food. The chicken is very large and is baked very well along with the potato and corn. The soup was a little salty but the entire meal gets you in the mood because everything is served to you without utensils and you have to use your hands like the medieval times. In terms of drinks - you have a choice of Pepsi, water or lemonade. I appreciated our server adding a little lemonade in my water for flavor but was a little disappointed that she would not help us get an extra wine glass when one person in our party decided they wanted some wine. She just told us that was "not in her purview" however the other server who handled the bar did not come by until much later in the show and by that time we had already finished our food. It would have been nice if she had said 'that's not something I can help you with but I will find someone right away who can'. She also did not offer us coffee despite it being on the menu. The positives definitely outweigh any negative occurrence that would happen at this event. The actors are very well choreographed and obviously love what they do. We felt the characters were very believable and the horses were very well groomed and healthy. The Falcon flight was short and sweet but it was a good experience to witness as the precision to which it flies is pretty amazing. The lady with the white show horse was also very elegant. I will definitely come back to the show and recommend it to others also be sure to bring extra cash as your child will want a light up sword!

Our group of three adults and four teens had a great time. Food was simple - you eat chicken, soup, corn, and potato with your hands - but good. Entertainment was non-stop and enjoyable. Beautiful horses and great riders, knights, ladies, sword fights and jousting. I really didn’t know what to expect but even our picky eater who is bored with everything got into the fun.

We have been here many times, my son has a severe peanut allergy, we have previously had outstanding service at MT. I told our server three times my son had a severe peanut/tree nut allergy. I asked our server if my son could have the dessert alternative (I was told by MT staff it wasn’t safe) , he argued with me repeatedly, was rude and aggressive- I was told he “brought cake and ice cream and he can eat that”. I reminded him he has a severe peanut allergy and can’t eat it/ he said he knows the label - he can eat it. I was appalled - it ruined the last part of the show (it was on his birthday 4/17/19). I told the server he didn’t need to be rude - he said he wasn’t rude. After we finished our dessert, he brought his tip card , said he wasn’t rude, got confused thought it was a gluten allergy and brought the safe Italian dessert...... there is no place on their web site to email customer service.

Purchase the lower-tier VIP tickets, which was probably unnecessary because no matter where you sit, I think you get the same experience. The food was pleasantly tasty, more so than I expected; chicken had a great flavor and it was filling, as was the half corn on the cob, half baked potato, garlic bread, tomato soup AKA dragon's blood, and you can take a to go box if you need it. Plus a small cup of ice cream for dessert. The horses were so entertaining and the nights were very skilled. It was good family fun, highly recommended for all ages.

I have to say from the moment we walked up to the castle entrance this surpassed all of my expectations. The greeter, the folks behind the counters, the bar staff, everyone there really made this a fun experience. I NEVER give all fives on any survey I take but I could not justify less than perfect with this place! My mouth dropped when I walked into the arena. I think I was half way prepared for disappointment in some way as my friend talked it up so much I thought surely it would be a let down but NO! Everything was really top notch in every way. We drove up from Va Beach area and it was worth it in every way. An experience I will never forget. Beautiful horses, handsome knights, and we loved the falcon! I can't say enough really. HIGHLY recommend this and I can't imagine the joy of taking a child but that would be even better!
