Medieval Times: Dinner & Tournament

Tue Jul 30, 2013 9:49 am

Has anyone been to any of the 9 castles to see the show and eat the food. I recently enjoyed the show and feast in Chicago, and was wondering what anybody else had to say. Would you do it again, or was it a one-time deal? Was the price fair or ridiculous to you?

I've done it twice, and it was spaced roughly about 10 years apart. I'd probably consider going again at some point just for the fun of it.

$60 for a full dinner and show is probably about right, but often times when it gets "slow" they've done online deals, specials, etc. etc. on their slower nights. I've seen $5 off coupons pop up in tourist magazines for the Jersey and Chicago locations.

It's definitely something that is a lot of fun to do in a group of 4 or more people.

Did it in Dallas back about 1990, and about ever 3 to 5 years since.

It was a fun experience, and is a really neat special for visiting friends/ relatives.

My grandsons had the very best time of anyon when they were 8-12 years old.

Not 'fantastic' food, but good though very limited.

I've been to the one outside Atlanta. It wasn't really my cup of tea, but to each his own. If you're in to that stuff I'm sure it's worth it. I liked the food was pretty good, though I'm not big on using my hands.
Careful, doors are closing, and will not reopen. Please wait for the next train.

I ended up spending $200.00 for three people, but that was with the Kings Royalty package. It was out of my general price range, but considering my friends enjoyed it, and called it "one of the best dinners they have had." which included the show/dinner, It was worth it. Not something I would do on a regular basis, but it does make a good "treat"

At my show, it was the Red/Yellow Knight.

Back in the early 90's, I went to one as a part of a school outing. It was fun, but haven't been back since.

There's a couple other similar places around the country as well, including the Excalibur Hotel/Casino in Vegas.

We went to the one in New Jersey a few years ago. I was expecting a sort-of-okay show and mediocre food. What we actually had was an excellent show and very good food.
