I surprised my husband with tickets to Medieval Times for his birthday. He had been to the one in Florida several times as a kid and also in college, but had never been to the New Jersey location. He was really thrilled when we pulled into the parking lot.
This is one of those events that you get out of it what you put into it. It's a bit cheesy, but really great fun. As my husband said, where else can you wear a paper crown and not feel strange about it?
There is a large free parking lot located outside the venue. Check-in at front door was quick and easy (he had our name on the list). It took a little while to have our tickets issued at the box office. There seemed to be a bit of confusion, but it may have just been a new box office person.
There is stuff to do prior to the dinner and show. You can have your photo taken in costume, visit the dungeon museum, gift shop and get a drink at the bar.
The seating is done quickly and efficiently. If you want to have a small flag to wave with your knight's colors on it, it will cost you $1.00. You can continue to order drinks in the arena and pay by credit card or cash. Be sure to bring cash with you if you want to tip your server at the end of the night.
I'm vegetarian and they served me a nice dish that included hummus, roasted vegetables and rice. I was also able to eat the soup and rolls. Everyone else was served, soup, chicken, ribs, and baked potato. There is an apple pastry and coffee for dessert and you can have water and soda with the meal.
The show is pretty funny with the knights competing in various games and then eventually engaging in sword fighting. Our knight, the black and white knight, did well in challenges but was the first to fall to the evil green knight.
They take your picture when you first walk in with either the king or the princess and then a photo of just your party. They come around during dinner to sell the two photos for $20. Someone also comes around to your table and takes a photo of your party and they sell that photo for $10.
If like Renaissance Festivals, you'll like Medieval Times. If you're looking for a way to spend a night doing something different than just dinner at restaurant, this is the way to go.

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament
You’ll find chivalry, revelry and rivalry at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament. Travel back in time to the 11th century – a time of jousting, swordplay, horsemanship and falconry. A time of Spanish castles, Knights of the Realm and true medieval, utensil-free dining.
Of course, you’ll still be encouraged to cheer for one of six Knights. The production features new lighting, choreography, exciting battle scenes, costumes, new horse dressage elements and a fresh musical score composed by Daniel May. With authentic weaponry and enhanced armor, the production presents non-stop action and mind-blowing fight scenes tied to the tempo of the music.
While most of the royal subjects at Medieval Times stand on their own two feet, the most celebrated members of the Kingdom are best known for their trot, gallop and canter. Four special breeds of horses complete the mix: Pure Spanish horses, Quarter horses, Friesians, and Menorcan. Without these magnificent 1,300-pound mammals, the incredible jousting and equine performances that take your breath away would be impossible. And like true performers, each horse is completely unique and requires training suited for its individual personality.
Now, let’s talk about utensil-free eats. The menu features:
- Tomato Bisque
- Focaccia Bread with Olive Oil
- Oven-Roasted Chicken
- BBQ Spare Rib
- Herb-Basted Potato
- Braided Apple Strudel
- Beverages and Coffee
If that doesn’t get you salivating, we don’t know what will. Vegetarians, do not fret. Just advise your server of any special meal requests once you’re seated.
Are you ready to surrender to an age of bravery and honor? This is going to be epic. You better hang on to your helmet because the show is about to begin.
About the Ticket Supplier: Medieval Times - New Jersey
Medieval Times Celebrates its 25-year reign in North America. Medieval Times' founders first launched their unique idea for a dinner attraction on the Spanish island of Majorca in 1973. This imaginative new entertainment spot was inspired by the true medieval tradition of royal families inviting guests to a festival and feast to watch Knights compete on horseback.
During the early years in Spain, the show's authentic display of classic equestrian skills and medieval pageantry took place in outdoor arenas, a far cry from the climate-controlled castles of today. There, the conventions of today's shows were established. Guests were seated in sections named for regions of Medieval Spain and encouraged to cheer for the Knight representing their region.
As Medieval Times has grown in popularity both in Spain and North America, some things haven't changed. Like the commitment to the accuracy of weapons and costumes. Others have. The characters and storyline of the show evolve every few years, making sure it stays fresh and exciting for generations to come.
