Medieval Times is celebrating 30 years of feasting and fun in North America. The founders first launched their unique idea for an 11th century-style dinner attraction on the Spanish island of Majorca in 1973. This imaginative new entertainment spot was inspired by the true medieval tradition of royal families inviting guests to a festival and feast to watch knights compete on horseback.

Seating is first come, first serve. There is no reserved seat assignment. No cancellation policy on show tickets.

Allergy/Strobe Warning: Medieval Times is a live horse show in an enclosed arena. Persons with respiratory conditions, allergies, or asthma attend at their own risk. Medieval Times uses stroboscopic and pyrotechnic effects.

"Second Time!"
August, 2018
This is our second time seeing Medieval Times Tournament. The show has changed and not for the good. We couldn’t hear nothing that they were saying. Our server Dillon was slow and rude when we asked why we weren’t getting food as fast as the pretty server to our left was bringing. Gift shop was extremely high. We will not be back. If you’re looking for more bang for your buck try Pirates Show. Entertaining from the door to the show.

We couldn't take anymore after an hour and a half. It was BORING. The horses mainly galloped around about 5 times for the 1st hour, then there was some horses and riders charging at each other maybe twice up to 1.5 hour in. Just very boring.

"Fun Night"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 23, 2019 NEW
What a great fun night!! Three of our four had been here before but it was outstanding for all. Our Knight, red/yellow, was the overall champion and we cheered like kids for him all night. The food was very good - the chicken was actually perfectly cooked and other parts of our meal were great. No forks or spoons and, believe it or not, it really was fun. The show was outstanding. Definitely recommend and will definitely return.

"I Enjoyed Watching the Kids More Than The Show!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 16, 2019
This show was fantastic. Knights sword fighting and jousting. But the most of all was watching the kids yelling, screaming and cheering on their night. The chicken, potatoes and corn were well prepared. We ordered a bottle of wine that was very good and inexpensive. It was a very clean venue and we had a great time.

"Disappointing meal"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed January 14, 2019
Amir did a great job serving us but he had too many seats to serve alone. We were constantly being asked to purchase alcohol by multiple employees but Amir was genuinely too busy to keep up with our drinks. We watched him and he was constantly busy so he was not to blame. Perhaps some of those selling drinks should have been assigned to help the servers. It seemed they were all rushing to keep up with their guests. Poor management. The menu said “House Pastry” but our dessert was a poor quality of ice cream in a card board bowl. Disappointing, to say the least! I had prepared my mother to expect a great meal and was ashamed it’s not what she was served. The potato was room temperature and dried out as though it had been prepared the day before. The soup and chicken were good. I chose this one entertainment for my mother’s pre-chemo trip because I was confident she would be delighted. I expected the excellent quality I’ve experienced from a previous visit here as well as Dixie Stampede visits.

"Are you not entertained?!?"

Reviewed January 12, 2019
First I must say, we won tickets and only paid for the kids to join us - so it was an amazing deal. The whole experience was themed from will call to the servers. The show was fun to watch and the unique names of the food caused our kiddos to actually try new "Dragon Blood Soup." There's no such thing as a child's plate so you better come hungry because you will be served a healthy portion. There's no silverware and of course Pepsi is on the menu since we are in the Carolinas after all. It was a good time and easy to get wrapped up in the theme...too bad our section's knight came in second place! Overall, it was really fun once and we may go again when the kids are older, but once is probably good.
