Medieval Times is celebrating 30 years of feasting and fun in North America. The founders first launched their unique idea for an 11th century-style dinner attraction on the Spanish island of Majorca in 1973. This imaginative new entertainment spot was inspired by the true medieval tradition of royal families inviting guests to a festival and feast to watch knights compete on horseback.

Seating is first come, first serve. There is no reserved seat assignment. No cancellation policy on show tickets.

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.

I have been a rider/ shown horses my whole life. I was afraid I would be bored or unimpressed by the horses/horsemanship. I was wrong! I really enjoyed watching some of the advanced dressage movements. I loved watching the knights horsemanship and skills. Very talented! I will definitely go again. My only complaint is- I wanted to ride too! I wish we could have toured the barn. Food- very good. I wasn’t sure how much to tip our server. I probably way over tipped but I guess that’s better than over tipping

This place is TERRIBLE. Perhaps I should have done more research before going because I had no idea this was an animal based show, but I was expecting more of a dinner show with human actors. This was just a horse circus hell hole. The entire show is basically men in tights making horses perform tricks. They use a whip with a bell on the end. The horses are obviously conditioned to know if they don't do the trick when they hear a bell they will be whipped. They make the horses do ridiculous things like standing on 2 legs, silly prancing moves, curtsying, etc. Additionally they are all frothing at the mouths by being pulled around by their mouth harnesses. They look obviously uncomfortable and terrified. I couldn't even sit through the whole show as the treatment of these horses was too upsetting. The vegetarian meal was decent (pretty sure it's vegan other than the dessert, so that was a plus) but the smell of a horse barn doesn't exactly stimulate my appetite. The only positive from going to this show was that I can now discourage others from doing the same. Stop giving them your money to exploit and abuse animals. Stop teaching your children that animals are here for our entertainment. Medieval Times- maybe you should get with the current times and release your horses to a sanctuary, and redo your show to not include animal exploitation.

Although I was not superbly impressed, this visit was more for my teenagers and they enjoyed themselves. I personally felt that there was way more dialogue than action and could’ve used a better storyline, but the kids loved it. The service was not bad at all though I felt like our server was a bit overwhelmed with too many tables to cater to at once. Be prepared to pay beyond the top dollar for basic drinks and cocktails. All the souvenir cups and glasses were grossly overpriced. But then again, this is how they generate revenues. It is a very large facility with huge staff to run it. The production value was impressive everything from well groomed and trained horses to the costumes to the lighting rig and a stellar Soundsystem. Just far too much dialogue for me. All in all, it’s still worth the trip with a large group especially ones with kids.
