Hear ye! Hear ye! Gather your best lords and ladies and head to Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament for a KNIGHT full of good food and fun! My family and I really enjoyed our visit to the Baltimore, MD castle. If you have never been, here is what you can expect at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament.
First of all, you should arrive to the castle early. The castle opens 70 minutes before showtime. I would recommend arriving at least 40 minutes ahead of the show. Once you get your tickets, you are greeted and given your crowns and knight colors. You are then invited to take a photo. The castle itself is really cool! My kids and I loved looking around and taking fun pictures of all of the medieval decor. You can buy souvenirs, enjoy a drink, and take part in special Knighting ceremonies, all before the show begins.
Once the banquet room opens, you are taken to your color corresponding area. We were cheering for the green knight, so we had green crowns and sat in the green section. Our waiter then came over, welcomed us and explained how our meal would go. The food is so delicious here. My husband always says it is his favorite chicken ever! Being you are in the medieval era, all food is to be eaten with your hands. Oh, what fun! Manners go out the window and everyone just goes to town! The menu consists of garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, herb-basted potatoes, the dessert of the castle, coffee and two rounds of select beverages. My kids absolutely loved the meal. It is a lot of food, but don’t worry, you are offered a to go box at the end, and even a warm towel to clean your “utensils.”
Now, of course, you can expect a lot of jousting, sword fighting, and tournament games! What I love about the show is that there is a story to go along with the event. You will also be treated to horsemanship, falconry, and weaponry acts during the show. Our favorite parts were a tie between the horsemanship and jousting. It is really incredible to watch, and I do not believe there is a bad seat in the house!
Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament is a great place to enjoy a fun family outing. It would also be a really fun birthday party, work event, or celebration as well! You can check out the many packages they offer here. I also recommend signing up for their email. They offer great savings and deals throughout the year!
Our family declares all people of the land, young and old shall experience the majestic, noble, and entertaining show that Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament has to offer! If you are lucky, you might even get a rose or sash from your Knight!
