Description

from Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament Illinois
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.*

"Gluten Free Food Paradise with a Side of Joisting"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We went to Medieval Times in Schaumburg in September 2019 with a bunch of other couples. We rode motorcycles from Des Moines to get there. Folks, it was such a blast! The food is naturally gluten free and it was amongst the best roasted chicken I’ve ever eaten. The sides were also gluten free. As someone with Celiac disease I have to be careful and am very sensitive. I can happily say I was not contaminated even by accident. They have a great drink menu as well and cheering on your knight while eating and drinking simply makes for an awesomely fun (k)night! It is without hesitation that I highly recommend a visit to Medieval Times in Schaumburg, Illinois. Be sure to stay over at one of the nearby hotels. We stayed at the Radison and it was also great!

"So much fun!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

I have been hearing about Medieval Times for YEARS and FINALLY had an opportunity to experience it for myself and I was NOT disappointed! My husband and I were in town for only a few days and I was determined to see the show and am so glad we went. The food was surprisingly good. I wasn't sure what to expect and with me being such a picky eater, I was concerned I wouldn't be able to eat much of the food. Once we got there and I started eating, I found it was delicious. Far better than I expected. I even finished my soup, and I don't even like tomato soup! If I had to name one complaint, it would be the price. I did find the souvenirs and drinks a bit expensive, but the price wasn't enough to ruin the fun. We just had to be a bit more frugal about what we spent our money on while there. The show itself was great. The horses were fun to watch and the jousting was entertaining. We had so much fun rooting for our knight! All in all, I will hands down attend another show, if an opportunity arises. I only wish one of the castles was located closer than four and a half hours from me!

We took our 13 and 9 year olds and had a wonderful evening! It's worth buying one of the extra packages for the early seating. The food is good (not awesome). Plenty of excitement for the whole family!
