Medieval Times was a lot of fun. My 8-year old daughter loved it. We got the celebration package which included a photo (costumes $3 extra), preferred seating (we got lucky and got first row), a shout out and piece of cake. The show was very entertaining throughout the entire time. The dinner was fine, garlic bread, roasted chicken, spare rib, potato, tomato soup and an apple pastry...no utensils. The service was very friendly. Just a nice night out, all around! The castle entrance is very conveniently located inside the mall. We went on a weeknight and it wasn't crazy busy. We had been shopping in the mall over the weekend and saw crazy long lines to get in there!

Big hunk of chewed gum stuck to the bottom of my husbands beer cup! The bartender was very apologetic and promptly got a brand new cup and beer. Not her fault at all but the lady whom I'm guessing was a manager didn't say a word to us. If we didn't have two very excited kids and over two hundred in tickets, we would have left! Who wants to eat after that? Sick, sick,sick!! Do a better job washing dishes! Show was good, food wasn't bad, but my rib had no meet on it whatsoever. Will not return! Oh, and I ordered Chardonnay and received a sweet Riesling. Could be a nice place if they had it together and clean dishes!
So much fun!!

I bring family and friends here as often as they will let me. I've been with kids - my youngest nephew is totally hooked and dreams of being a knight someday. And I've been with just adults. I've celebrated a birthday here and came in medieval costume for New Year's Eve (which was the most fun of all). In fact, I've been coming here at least twice a year for several years now. I've had a great time each and every time and think "why don't I come here more often?" Know that it will be kitchy, that they will be selling tchotchkes while you eat your dinner and that it will not be "authentic" is SO many ways. So what? You get to see some really amazing horsemanship, some beautiful horses, a FALCONRY demonstration [and who outside of modern day royalty does falconry anymore?], some action-packed swordplay, jousting, and games on horseback with lances. You get a decent dinner, too. You get to cheer at the top of your lungs for your knight, and likewise boo his enemy. The staff at the Maryland castle is unfailingly friendly and helpful, too. After the show, the knights will come out and are more than happy to have their pictures taken and chat with members of the audience. I can't wait to have an excuse to come back!!
A great time had by all!

I surprised my 11 year old grandson with Medieval Times for our boys day out and he was impressed with everything and this is not easy with all of the gadgets they use for entertainment. He loved the horses, pageantry and the black knight! I'm glad I got the King's package because we were sitting front and center for all of the action. He was cheering and waving his banner throughout the show. For me the food was great but he's a picky eater and a grilled cheese sandwich would have been perfect for him. After the show he was full of questions about how they made the show. I'm sure he'll have all of his answers once he watches the DVD that came with our package. He must have thanked me 5 - 6 times by the time I took him home to his parents. He's already talking about coming back again. It can be expensive but I caught the $9.99 children's special which was great. While no venue is perfect, this was great family entertainment and I highly recommend it.
