Yesterday I packed my kiddos ( 11 and 4) up in the car and headed out to Baltimore, MD for a real treat: Medieval Times. My sister was awesome enough to meet us there! I have always wanted to go but I was worried my youngest wouldn't be entertained. Thanks to US Family Guide and Medieval Times for making this dream come true!
Overall we had so much fun. The kid's faces were priceless, and I would take them again as they really liked it but since this is my review I will go over the pros and cons.
It is super easy to get the tickets online and they also accommodate allergies and special diets. My sister is a vegetarian and they had a meal for her!
It's also very entertaining... The show kept moving and changing, so it was easy for my 4-year-old to not get bored. They loved the real sparks from the sword fights and the competition we had to have our Knight win (ours did not).
Food - As I mentioned, I like how they could accommodate my sister, she got an appetizer of hummus and veggies and pita bread and then a rice and potatoes "stew". The regular meal was also pretty tasty. I started with a bowl of tomato soup and bread. My 11-year-old has never had tomato soup, and he tried it (WIN) and even liked it... He really liked dipping his bread into the soup! The chicken was also well seasoned and very moist... And you get a ton! Each person gets a half of a roasted potato, (that was yummy too). You also get corn on the cob... That was my 4-year-old's favorite. Dessert was soft ice cream with a butterscotch sauce.
We did opt to get the VIP seating upgrade which meant we got priority seating, closer seating and we each got a banner. It was nice... but I am not sure it is necessary.
It was helpful to get in before everyone. felt like we didn't have to line up, but next time I would check-in and get my table number and then maybe walk the mall.
They suggest you get there early so they open the "gates" 75 min early. However, this does not let you into the arena to get to your seats. This just opens up to the "shopping" area where there is nothing to do but shop so be prepared to bring extra cash.
They have lots of souvenirs to choose from which is nice and you can purchase fun kid's drinks and even adult beverages.
I wish that they had more "tables" to sit down at and maybe even at the table have some table games like chess and checkers since we upgraded to the VIP seats and didn't have to wait in line but the lines can get long to wait for entrance into the arena if you don't do the VIP seats. We went in around 3 and were not let into the arena until maybe 3:55. The show started around 4:10.
11-year-old: "My favorite part was probably the games when they swung the swords and the sparks came off. My least favorite part was the ice cream and the knight not winning."
4-year-old: "I liked it when the knight swung the stick with the spike balls around. I didn't like when my knight didn't win."
