If your idea of fun is dinner and a show, then we invite you to visit Medieval Times in Buena Park, CA. Step into a castle and be transported to a time when there were knights in shining armor and everything seemed just a little bit more innocent and romantic. Grab a pre-show drink at the Great Hall, and for a few bucks more, you can visit the Museum of Torture.
Medieval Times never disappoints. The knights’ colors you cheer for may change every time you go, but pretty much everything is the same – from the almost-two hour show featuring jousting, swordsmanship, thrilling hand-to-hand combat, and talented hoses to the 4-course menu of garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, herb-basted potatoes, pastry of the Castle, coffee and two rounds of select beverages. P.S. you get o wear a paper crown matching the color of the knight you are rooting for (Green, Red, Black and White etc.) and you EAT with your hands! The food isn’t fancy but it is tasty enough and quite filling. This is the best thing about Medieval Times: it is consistently good. Money well-spent on entertainment, if you ask me.
It’s hard to believe 5 years have passed since we posted this video! My boys were so little and look how much they enjoyed being a knight in training at Medieval Times in Buena Park.
Since then, we’ve been back to Medieval Times once a year to celebrate my boys’ birthdays. They never get tired of it, and to be honest, neither do we. The show, the swordplay, the cheering, the food.
This year, we got the chance to go behind the scenes and we met the lead knight.
And the other knights and members of the cast.
And of course, the horses.
