Bring your own condiments (ketchup, sauce for chicken, etc) if you really prefer to have them with your meal. They only have hot sauce and BBQ sauce. Still good though!

Description

**Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament

**You’ll find chivalry, revelry and rivalry at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament’s California Castle.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.

**The Show

**Of course, you’ll still be encouraged to cheer for one of six Knights. The updated 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 nonstop action and mind-blowing fight scenes tied to the tempo of the music.

**The Horses

**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.

The Feast

Now, let’s talk about utensil-free eats. The menu features:

- Tomato Bisque

- Garlic Bread

- Oven-Roasted Chicken

- BBQ Spare Rib

- Herb-Basted Potato

- Apple Pastry

- 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 - Chicago

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.
