My family was invited to visit Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament in Dallas, TX this past weekend. My son was excited, and my husband was super excited!
From the moment we stepped into the doors of the castle, we were entertained. Upon check-in, our party was assigned a team, and given a crown to specify which. (We were the red & yellow team.) We spent a while browsing the waiting area, where you can view the horses, tour the Torture Museum or grab a drink (or two). Every employee was in character, whether they worked in the photo booth, the gift shop or the bar.
The 11th century show began and kept my children’s attention from the sound of the first trumpet. The games and fighting had my son so into the show, I didn’t think he’d ever want it to end. The knights captivated my daughter, especially when “our knight” kissed and threw her a pink carnation. Later, he gave her a sash, and chose her for his Queen of Love and Beauty. My youngest son enjoyed all the action. Especially the horses!
The dinner is served – utensil free. (No forks, knives, spoons or straws.) Guests dine on tomato bisque, garlic bread, oven roasted chicken, a BBQ rib, herb potatoes and an apple pastry while watching the tournament. It was delish!
*Our knight won the tournament. Go Red & Yellow!
After the show, guest are invited to take pictures and/or request autographs from all the characters. There is also a dance party in the waiting area. (If this wasn’t a dance party, I apologize. Maybe that’s why everyone was smiling and encouraging my two year old to shake it. He had lots of fun, though!)
My family had a wonderful time, and both my son and daughter asked when we were going to go back!
Medieval Times – Dallas is rolling out a completely new show & upgraded menu on November 18th – the first new show since 2007!
According to Pedro Goite, general manager of the Dallas Castle, “The new live performance will
give our guests a one-of-a-kind experience that will keep first-time visitors and returning fans on
the edge of their seats.”
While the show offers many new elements, some traditions remain. The live show will still feature two- and four-legged performers with a utensil-free meal serviced in a castle-inspired arena.
