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.

Junior Knight Training Pre-show is free with the purchase of a child ticket and happens before select shows during spring, summer and the holidays. This is an interactive experience offered to children ages 4-12, where they get to watch an exclusive weapons demonstration by our Knights and Weapons Master and learning about the grueling training it takes to become a Knight.

"Nonstop fun!"
November 2019
We had a choice to upgrade on our tickets to the next level so we could get easy access to a table because of back issues. We were glad we did because we could get in early and sat in the front row!

"Great Entertainment"
September 2019
We had a great time, we upgraded to VIP when we arrived and it was a great seat! We had front row and was definitely close to the action! I did notice that the earlier you arrived to check in, the better the seats you got! So be there about 1.5 hours before showtime, we were there on a slow night so we actually didn’t need to upgrade to get great seats. The dinner and drinks are great, we had something from the bar and it was delicious and went along with the theme. Our food was warm and served promptly, and I would recommend to anyone who wants an evening of fun! We didn’t take our kids but definitely will next time! They cater to kids and love to interact with them!

"Very Entertaining "

Went with my son’s class on a field trip. It was educational and extremely interactive. The props, costumes, and animation were perfect. It was a true representation of Medieval Times. The kids enjoyed the theatrics and being able to participate. They were thoroughly entertained. The food was just okay, but it’s not the main attraction so not a total loss.

"Beautiful horses , entertaining "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed March 12, 2020
We took our daughter and grandson. We enjoyed the show. Beautiful horses, Grandson complained about the “horse smell” but that’s part of the show. The food was the best part! The chicken was moist and the potatoes awesome, crispy and salty on outside—soft on the inside. The show was playing out all through the dinner. We paid $20 for a bottle of wine that costs about $8 at the grocery store. Our waitress was nice and accommodating. Seeing to our needs. The only thing we didn’t like was the blatant way that a tip was asked for. A little sign was placed when we first sat down. At the end, she moved the sign and put it in a tray. They even take tips on your debit or credit card! It’s the era of no one using cash any more. We stopped at the gift shop on way out, getting the five year old grandson a $17 laser sword. The whole experience for the four of us cost about $260 plus tip for the 2 hours. It was fun but probably is a one time event for us

My wife and I attended the show with our 14y/o and 8y/o granddaughters. We sat in the cheap seats (no bad seats in the house) and could view and see everything. A couple sodas and a couple cocktails cost $50 with tip. Torture museum for $2 each was worth the $2, nothing really scary for kids and it's only 20 feet long. Actors in the show were very good and the horses were beautiful. My hearing isn't great but the kids said they could understand everything that was being said. Food was surprisingly decent. Chicken (or dragon) was well cooked, moist and hot. The kids thought the tomato bisque was very good, tasted like the usual tomato soup to me. The show itself was very well done, great athleticism was shown by all the horseman and the "battles" were quite convincing for the kids. Overall, very well done and would recommend it for any families looking for a different type of evening out. Show went a little over 90 minutes and getting in and out was very easy.

The food was very good soup chicken corn potato’s a roll and ice cream. The show was fantastic, the bar was pricey but you get to keep your glass. We spent about $250 for 4 admissions and 2 drinks in souvenir glasses from the bar, and it was well worth it. Would go again.

Reviewed January 18, 2020
We decided to take in this show for a winter activity to do while in Myrtle. We purchased the Royalty upgrade, thankful we did, we had center areana, front row seats! This is a first come first serve type seating, you are assigned a row, then select your own seat. The actors did very well on their performances prior to the show, when you arrive early, you visit the gift shop area, can get beverages, and/or pay $2 to walk through the dungeon to see medieval artifacts which were interesting. The falcon was even available to see and take photos. The food is good, just unusual to eat with your hands. Our wait staff was very pleasant. The show was very interesting, but I had difficulty understanding what was being said, not sure if it was the sound system or not. We enjoyed ourselves for sure.
