Here ye here ye...
This place is def rated pg so its a great place to take the kiddies! No gore or blood gushing which would prob be a lot more interesting for adults...you def get the sense that they earn most of their commissions off of the kids ..!
SO..you get a plate of baby dragons and as a vegetarian your allowed to be more modern and have utensils.
I was sooo happy to hear that they had a vegetarian option, as i thought i would never get to everr Experience Medieval Time in my lifetime as i know vegetarians were prob castrated or used as slaves in the ancient time!
so the food consists of a big mushroom with rice and beans inside and a skewer with potatoes and vegetables and some hummus and chips.
our wench was very nice and was quick to serve smiles and food.
The show itself was ehh..none of us really understood the story line and the horse dander really got me sneezing..So be careful if your allergic!
Everything was extremely pricey! 60 bucks w.o the group discount which was a good 45 bucks, still quite hefty if you ask me!
either or, it was a good ONE time experience and that's it!Recommended for:

Also in the area near Knotts Berry Farm (Buena Park):
* Knott’s Soak City Waterparks www.knotts.com/public/park/soakcity/index.cfm
* Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament www.medievaltimes.com/buenapark.aspx
* Pirate’s Dinner Adventure www.piratesdinneradventure.com/index.php?page=Pirates-Dinner-Adventure-Buena_Park-California
Medieval Times is fun for the whole family. The food is not so kid friendly. We found the Pirate’s Dinner Adventure is more appropriate for adults.

Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament are a family dinner theater that have medieval-style game. Each Location is replica of a 11th century Castle. There are total of nine locations. One of the scene in the comedy "The Cable Guy" is film in this location.
+ Feature some of the finest horses in the world.
+ Free parking and is closed to the theater.
+ Pretty good food, better than Pirates Dinner Show (Chicken comparison)
+ After the show, you get to see those wonderful horses up close in a small
+ Great sword-fighting
+ Some Jaw Dropping Jousting performed.
+ 1/2 portion Chicken compare to Pirates 1/4 Chicken.
+ Chicken taste great, has moist is better than the on the Pirates.
- A bit pricey at the retail price, cost more than Pirates Dinner Show.
- No appetizer or snacks like the one in Pirates Dinner Show next door.
- Not friendly with camera or camcorder because there is a big net cover in the arena
- Like the Pirates Dinner Show, can't pick section or seat. Unless you paid more to Guaranteed better seat.
* Sign up their mailing list if you really want to go there, you would get a promo coupon from time to time.
* If you still hungry, there's an burger king across the street which is actually little bit of medieval style too.
My two cents:
If you are couple especially younger audience, you would have better time in the Pirates Dinner show next door, a many people dress like pirate, Pirates of Caribbean must gave them huge boost. While the only popular Medieval alike show or movie is probably Game of Throne which I wish will be in a stage in someday. Such amazing TV show. Worth to check it out if you have been there before, but if you did, is probably not worth it to go back unless you have kids or an another one :)Recommended for:

Step back in time to this impressively well done medieval knights' games show. Real games and fights are performed on real horses, and in real armor...you just need to deal with the fake acting. Still, it's fantastic fun for groups to go and cheer on your assigned color/knight, and the venue is beautifully decorated with an era-appropriate ambience. And the food is delicious - they serve you too much to eat, even over two hours! Try to find a deal on one of the community deal sites, like Living Social or Groupon, as the door price is quite steep.Recommended for:

Cheesy as heck - but in a good way! If you have kids between 3-7 years old this is a fun way to spend a night. The show is exciting, the food is better than expected and the kids all seemed to have a great time and isn't that what counts? Don't pay full price, though. They always offer discount coupons or reduced price tickets through Goldstar Events.Recommended for:

This place is great for families, kids, birthday parties, couples and teenagers. We went here in July and had a great time! You can find discounted tickets from socaliafterdark.com if you want to save money.

Today was the last day for a Medieval times promotion which was for $25 admission. Having not been there since 7th grade, I was quite looking forward to experiencing the dinner and tournament once again. We arrived an hour and a half prior to showtime. The line was a little long but moved at a steady clip. Once in the waiting area, visitors can gaze at the horses, shop for souvenirs and buy high-priced alcoholic beverages at the two bars. One of the reasons I think the prices are on the higher side is that you get a commemorative cup/mug/flask which acts as a souvenir. Not being a drinker, this didn't relate to my experience. Twice during the pre-show, the king knighted/christened people willing to be extra cash for a photo-op. Quickly enough, the mass of paper crown wearing people were seated by color of their knight for the evening. Our knight tonight would be the Red knight, whom looked like Chris Daughtry from the band, Daughtry. What followed were theatrics, horsemanship, jousting and hand to hand combat. The food wasn't bad. We were started with tomato bisque, then garlic bread. Our main entrees came next with roasted half chicken, beef/pork rib and a roasted potato. For dessert was the "pastry of the caste" aka apple turnover and some coffee to wash it down. Pepsi, iced tea and water were the choice for drinks. During one the horse demonstrations, one of the horses seems to be salivating unusually. Big globs of mucus would drip from it's mouth as it performed two-legged poses, jumping back kicks and prostrations towards the king. Our knight, the Red knight, ended up being the victor tonight after all which capped an entertaining evening. It reminded me of my experience as a 7th grader, taking it all in for the first time. Leaving the parking lot was a bit of a problem as this show's audience was leaving and the next show's audience was arriving. After a few honks of the horn, we were on our way home having had a great time. I wouldn't recommend making reservations here for regular price. I would recommend using one of their many promotions throughout the year such as "kids get free" or "buy one, get one free". I definitely would like to come back again some time.Recommended for:
