I had not been to Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament in about eight years, so I was very excited to check it out and find out what changes had come about. The Medieval Times I am referring to in this article is the one in Buena Park. When arriving at Medieval Times, it seemed smaller than I remember…I think it is because I went there so much when I was younger. The castle is still quite easy to find on Beach Blvd. in Buena Park located next to the Pirate’s Dinner Theater and across the street from the new Titanic & Bodies Exhibits (formerly the Movieland Wax Museum) It is conveniently located off the exit of the 91 freeway.
There are several other Medieval Times Locations throughout the US and one in Canada. See my Castle Map picture for all locations. Medieval Times currently is celebrating 30 years in business! Tickets are $35.95 for children and $57.95 for adults plus taxes and processing fees. For several special offers for Medieval Times, there is a special offers section on their website as well with coupons and there is a group discount section as well.

When entering the castle there is a picture opportunity with “a lord and a lady.” After taking our group picture (which you have an opportunity to purchase at dinner time and I did…) we proceeded to enter the main building. When entering, there is a bar with several fabulous mugs to choose from as souvenirs and plenty of poisons to select to fill in your glass. There were a great variety of “fruity drink alcoholic beverage options” that myself and my two girlfriends selected and my husband had a gin and tonic. As we purchased our drinks and continued to enter the large room, there was a gift shop with swords in which my husband’s eyes gravitated to. In the gift shop there were options to purchase many type of different swords as well as fun flags by color to cheer on the color of your team in the show to come. My husband bought the four of us flags and we were excited to enter the dinner theater for our show to start. While waiting for the show, there is a “knighting ceremony” where lucky people are selected to be knighted by Medieval Times Staff and have awesome picture opportunities.
As the time for our dinner show approached, we were shown to our seat by color and the excitement began! Upon being seated in the color section you are chosen to represent, the excitement grows. Medieval Times has an impressive size stadium and the utensil-free meal is certainly a feast fit for a king!
“His Majesty” feast at the Medieval Times includes tomato bisque soup, garlic bread, herb roasted potato, spare rib, oven-roasted chicken, pastry of the castle and nonalcoholic beverages. The only thing we were bummed about is beer used to be included with your meal, but no longer is. I
must say I was quite impressed with this feast, as my foodie husband was as well. All of the flavors made our taste buds happy and we were thoroughly satisfied at the end of our meal. The feast is served course by course as the show proceeds on the stage below. There are gorgeous horses, strong knights, jousting and excitement as the show continues. The crowd gets very excited because as the knights are riding across the floor on their horses and jousting their swords, certain color teams are ahead or behind in the race to win! People in the audience cheer for their team and wave their colored flags to cheer their color on. Even though our team did not win, we had a fabulous time. 🙂
