This was the BEST New Year's Eve Event. The added drink specials and snacks before the show and the full champagne/music/dancing experience after the completely great horse riding and medieval show and full 4-course dinner made it complete.

It was about what I expected. No setting availabe in the area where they served the hors d'oeuvres, however they were much better than expected. The dinner and the show were about as expected. The DJ was playing very current music which didn't...continued

The NYE show was great. There was a deejay, dancing, bubbly champagne, sparkling apple Martinelli for the kids, & party favors. After the show we took pictures with all the knights, & the princess. The only thing was there was a malfunction in the...continued

Got there at 8 and there was already quite a line outside. This event sells out, so there are a lot of people milling around everywhere. Museum of torture was interesting and a good way to kill time while waiting to be seated for dinner. ...continued

Overall it was a fun night for the price we paid. And it was a nice alternative if you don't want the "club scene" for NYE. We arrived the venue around 8:30 pm (the show started around 9:30 pm).
We went to the Museum of Torture and there was a...continued

Horses and costumes were superb. The true equestrian displays (sadly, no more than 10% of the show) were fabulous. The rest of the show was pretty mediocre. Food was OK (better than expected, but just OK). Too much waiting around, lines, being...continued

Excellent value for New Year's Eve. Skilled performers and a perfectly edible if not gourmet meal, a split of champagne and party favors all included.

The place was packed on New Year's Eve, so it made for a lively event. The venue is nice, the horses and rides excellent and all in all, it was a good show. The meal was surprisingly good - the chicken was moist and tender although my kids...continued

It has been several years since we attended this and looked forward to NYE there. We arrived at 8pm when the doors were to open and it took 45 minutes to get inside. Once inside, it was very crowded and took another 45 minutes to get to our...continued

Entertainment kind of hokey, but the skill games were good. Very talented contestants. The Chancellor (sort of a ring master) was excellent - very funny. Food was what you would expect - mediocre and cold by the time the served everyone. But you...continued

My wife and I didn't have any other NYE plans and decided to give Medieval Times a try and I'm so happy we did. We arrived at 9pm to check in and this allowed plenty of time to get tickets and get in line. After getting inside we took a quick look...continued

Getting in was a nightmare. We stood in line, in the cold, for an hour to pick up our tickets. Why not just print them on line? Last year the hors d'oeuvres were served in the "lobby" so we had something to do while we waited to be seated. ...continued

Despite everything I read: the food was excellent (maybe not the tomatoe broth). But drinks totally overpriced. Show was well done and kids loved it despite it starting at 9; 30pm. The balloon drop at NYE lol was a small fiasco...but we still...continued
