School is finally out! What sort of summer fun do you have planned for the family? Have you considered taking everyone to Medieval Times? If not, you really should. My family and I had a total blast! Were able to go free of charge to facilitate this review, but all thoughts and opinions shared here are my own.
Summer Fun for the Family
The best part of Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament is that it entertains all ages. Young and old are enticed by the excitement and can't help but cheer for their knight. Seriously, we all lost our voices from cheering so hard.
Before the show, we wandered around the castle for a little bit. We got to hold some really awesome swords, see and read about medieval torture methods, and see where the horses hang out.
The show was outstanding. The horses are simply magical. The knights are equally amazing. The training it must take… I can't even imagine. But it is truly impressive. All the people and animals are totally in character–down to your wench or man-wench–which really sets the atmosphere.
Dinner is served while you're watching the tournament and the food is delicious. You really feel medieval when you're tearing into your “dragon's leg” with your teeth and fingers. (Silverware is available upon request, but c'mon, where's the fun in that!)
Overall, this is an awesome summer fun event for the whole family. It's even quite educational if you visit the dungeon! Kids will have a whole new perspective for punishments after seeing what they were like in Medieval Times! Timeout chair of torture anyone?
One of my son's favorite parts of the evening was getting to see the knights up close after the tournament. They all come out to sit on their thrones and are available for pictures. You really get to see their personalities! LOL
