Description

from Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament California
Medieval Times is more than the nation's #1 and longest running dinner attraction - it's a living link to the past where the glory, chivalry and valor of old burst to life in authentic pageantry and thrilling tournament action.

While guests enjoy a hearty four-course medieval-style banquet (without silverware), six brave knights compete in games of skill astride magnificent Andalusian stallions. Lances splinter against shields of steel, broad swords spark and a champion emerges, to the cheers of the enthusiastic crowd. The spectacle unfolds nightly inside a fully enclosed European-style castle.

The Feast:
The menu at Medieval Times consists of garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, herb-basted potatoes, the pastry of the Castle, coffee and two rounds of select beverages. A vegetarian meal is available upon request.

In addition, our cocktail servers will be making the rounds and are happy to deliver any spirits from the bar that you request for an additional fee.

*Plan to arrive early, seating is first come first serve and to obtain the best seats and castle doors open 75 minutes prior to show time.*

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.

We were in the area for my husbands medical appointment and he wanted to revisit Medieval Times again. What a treat it was, the entire audience was engaged and the talent was stellar. Great show with amazing entertainment, food, and staff!

I heard from an acquaintance that the Medieval Times dinner was fun, so I decided to go with some business colleagues. We were all so disgusted that we left half way through the show due to the treatment of the horses. The horses are repeatedly whipped for no reason and look to be in great pain. The horses all foam at the mouth when doing tricks. It’s heartbreaking! I am in shock that this is an operating business in the year 2020. The areas that the horses are kept are so small that they can barely move around. I would never ever recommend this show to anyone. I feel awful that we spent money in such an establishment.

Reviewed December 15, 2019
I don't know how I made it to 52-years old before seeing this show. I know I kept thinking it'd be a waste of money and time because they are always popping up near other places that are like that, but man I was wrong. This is a legit horse show with so much more. Yes, it's expensive. We brought 9 of us and then spent and extra $20 or so per kid for bling at the show. It was on Thanksgiving Day though and we would have spent a lot of money either way. Seriously, just go with this. My husband took it as an legitimate reason to spend the money. From the 18-month old granddaughter on lap to the 13-year old making googly-eyes at the knights, it was a BLAST. Just jump in.
