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.*

"Wow sooo much fun!"

Ok, if you asked me to write this review 2 years ago, it would definitely be different. I had gone a couple times in the past and felt it was way overpriced, mediocre food, and and definitely a struggle to keep my attention on their performance. However, driving with my grandson, he saw the castle and asked me to please take him. So, of course, I did. My two grandchildren, my son, his wife, my husband, and I all decided to go. From the first moment we walked in I could already feel the vibe is quite different. Everyone was genuinely happy to serve us and to make sure that this was a great experience. The drinks at the bar were incredibly well-made, the food was delicious, and the service was better than it's ever been. Watching the show, we could not get enough. It is very expensive but, it is worth every penny. I truly cannot wait to go back! Thank you Hank Bonnette for truly making this a very memorable night. He greeted all the guests thanking them for coming. Quite frankly, that impressed me so very much!

We took our 7th graders to a show at the Shaumburg Illinois theater and everyone enjoyed themselves. The show was a little predictable and hokey but still fun. The low rating is because of a gift shop purchase. I spent about $40 on this dragon ball globe that uses batteries to make the "smoke" inside spin. It doesn't work. When I called the main number, they sent me to a local number so that I could leave a message. I have left messages twice with no return call. I guess I'm just out the money. The lack of customer support is the worst. Dont waste your money. Update: After my initial review, I quickly received a response, asking me for more details and as offering to replace the globe. Not only did they replace the globe, they also offered me two tickets for a future show. Thanks for making everything right!

This was a fun evening of entertainment- the jousting, horse show and acting were superb. The meal was cooked perfect. The only critics are the cake was dry and the glass souvenir cups with adult beverages were overpriced in our opinion. Overall very glad we went!

"Gluten Free Food Paradise with a Side of Joisting"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 05, 2019
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!
