We took our first trip to Medieval Times a few weeks ago and it was a blast! We got there about 1 hour and 15 minutes before the show, and there was a line already - it is popular! When you arrive you will be given a crown with the color(s) of the Knight you will be cheering for. If you'd like, you can have your picture taken with the King before you enter the huge gathering area. Relax and enjoy cold drinks for everyone from the bar - they have smoothies for the kids. Visit the Dungeon (there's a nominal charge for this). Check out the beautiful offerings in the gift shop. You can even visit with some of the cast members before the show begins. Before long, they will call you to the doors and begin letting you in, one color at a time.

While we watched, we were served our main course of chicken with corn on the cob and potatoes. Everything was delicious and so filling. After your plates are cleared, you'll receive an apple pastry and coffee, if you'd like. They also offer to-go boxes if you can't finish everything. There is a vegetarian meal available if you let them know when you book your tickets.
Medieval Times was a wonderful experience. Before we visited, I wasn't sure if I would like it, but I am glad I was wrong! It is a great family attraction, and to see those beautiful horses performing was magical. That's why I think this makes a great back to school tradition - it's so special and unique! Your kiddos will definitely remember this night. And if you homeschool like we do, you'll love the Partners in Education pages Medieval Times has on their website. I really appreciate that our special night out can be turned into a history lesson for David, too!
