Ring in the New Year with the lords and ladies of Medieval Times. The evening begins with the famed Medieval Times experience. Before the show, enjoy hors d'oeuvres and explore the hair-raising Museum of Torture as you arrive. At show time, settle in to feast on a four-course banquet and cheer for your favorite knight. The chivalrous warriors compete in jousting, swordsmanship, thrilling hand-to-hand combat, and displays of extraordinary horsemanship. After the show, medieval times give way to modern times with a DJ and dancing, party favors, a champagne toast and balloon drop at midnight. After your night of parting, restore your energy with a continental breakfast. Learn More
