Description

from Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament New Jersey
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.

"Bad food and boring show"

The food was awful and the drinks were flat. The show was boring. In my group no one enjoyed. It was so gross, and the special (and actually good) drinks were super expensive. Why waist so much money for an awful experience.

Fun show and awesome chicken & tomato soup. Veggie entree was rated well by my husband. Arrive early to see the king and princess and the knights parade into the castle . Parking is free but expect pay for additional experiences and memoirs. We got standard seats and did not buy any extras for our family, still we had great view from high seats.

"Was so Excited..."

I was so excited to finally get to go to Medieval Times. When we finally got there the seats that are built in are so small, definitely made for petite people. The Food was OK, not great, but OK. The show would have been great, if you could understand any of the story line, the sound system is terrible. Couldn't understand anything anyone saying I would never again spend that much money to go back.

"Fun experience"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed December 27, 2019
My family enjoyed the show. The meal is a half chicken, baked half a potato and corn and a small dessert. My kids didn’t love the half chicken - it didn’t resemble the chicken tenders they order everywhere we go. So be warned if yours are like mine. The show was fun and held the interest of my kids ranging ages 3.5 to 12 years. Alcohol is extra and somewhat expensive but you get to keep some novelty cups. A bit expensive over all but a fun good experience.

Took my Grandson, son and daughter in law for 2018's Christmas gift. My Grandson and Daughter in law had never been there before, and they enjoyed it thoroughly. I'm so glad they had such a good time. My son had been there numerous times. We had taken him since he was little, on our trips to Orlando we would travel to Kissimmee, and then when the one was built in Lyndhurst, NJ, we took him there once or twice. Now we are planning on taking my seven year old Granddaughter who we took to the one in Kissimmee two years ago.
