We had never attended any Medieval Times Show, so for us it all started as a new exciting experience, which involved eating with our hands and a fun tournament! Our local Medieval Times Castle is located in Lindhurst NJ, but you can find a location near you HERE.
My son invited a friend to share this experience and I truly believe that made a huge difference and I will tell you why:
Upon arriving at the Castle and they were snapping pictures and sharing on his social channels, building excitement for what was to come! The truth is, we were all super excited!
We received our colors which determined our seating area and a crown to proudly cheer for our knight! Black and White it was!
The seating was a long table setting and our waitress, dressed the part to bring our refreshments before the King saluted us!
We were given choices for non alcoholic drinks, but it was a pre-set menu. We loved the warm the tomato soup with garlic bread, followed by chicken, potato, corn and pastries for dessert! My son still talks about the corn, which appeared to have been immersed in a delicious marinade sauce! Sooooo good!
As I looked at the kids, they were tapping on the table, making noises with the plates, imitating the people in the old times! Raising their glass to toast to a fun tournament ahead!
The Tournament started, our knights were presented, followed by roses being offered to the crowd and more cheering!
As usual, there’s always a bad guy! Yes, the lord who wanted to mess up the tournament and marry the princess! No way!
The Falconry and the horse acts were our absolute favorites!
Then the jousting really began and our knights battled!
Each section of the audience would cheer for the Knight with those colors! The boys were screaming for our knight and booing the opponents!
Our Black and White knight did not win, but we truly enjoyed the jousting and battling!
At the end, the brave knight won and the foe was taken to their rightful place! The kids loved that!
I had a chance at the end to take a picture with one of the Knights, after the show was over!
The food, the music and the entertainment really resonated with the teens and brought that playful spirit and fun sense of adventure confirmed by the fact that they didn’t touch the phones, once the meal started!
So, if you are thinking about visiting Medieval Times and you aren’t sure if it’s for your teen, I hope my experience helps you book your visit soon!
Can’t wait to hear what you think, as usual, give us a Trendy Shout!
