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.

Medieval Times is a place where you could have a good meal and totally enjoy a live action show. The show is primarily presented for children, although we were entertained. We would go again.

"Good fun, good food"

This dinner and a show was really fun! I did find it boring at times as the horses are a major part of the show, showing of the tricks they can do. Although beautiful it gets a little boring after awhile. The jousting and the sword fight were fun to watch! The food was tasty, chicken was a bit dry but otherwise it was good and the sevice was great. Alcoholic drinks are very expensive here! $14 for a slushy drink, ouch! I have also seen the Tournament of Kings in Las Vegas and found that show much more entertaining. There your allowed to bang on the tables and stop your feet and it's far more crowd engaging. Medieval Times was still a good time out with friends and I'd probably do it again.

"Fun for the kids"

This was a fun outing for my kids (ages 8 and 11). They enjoyed watching the show. Though, I was bored; not really into jousting and medieval stories. The meal was good, you get a piece of chicken, tomato soup, piece of bread, corn on the cob, a piece of baked potato, and a piece of cake. You have to eat everything with your hands. There is a vegetarian option available, but not sure what it is.

"Best gift"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed April 21, 2019
The medieval times dinner was the best gift. Knowing of my love for knights and the era,the gang showed up to celebrate this happy day with me. We got our passes and group photo,then made our way to the main arena. There is alot to do whilst you wait for the show to begin. Your colours are chosen before the show which will be the knight you cheer on. The entire show was well synchronized and the horses were amazing,including that falcon. At this feast you eat with your hands. But the chicken was cooked perfectly so it just fell off the bone. We all had a wonderful time and the crowd was amazing,making this the best gift ever. Thank you

Myself and my significant other booked dinner at Medieval Times for our first to do night getting into Anaheim. He had never been- we both enjoyed a cocktail in glasses to take home. Were assigned to the black and white knights section. Dinner was good-all kinda of tge same seasoning across the chicken, corn, potato but yummy. It was fun eating with our hands and cheering along. A good one time should do!
