Arrive early! We arrived 30 min prior to the event but were seated in the final row. The view was good but the servers kept coming and going in front of us so they constantly blocked our view and it was distracting and annoying. Overall a terrific event.

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.
