Medieval Times Premieres New Show

Last month I attended the premiere night of Medieval Times new show. This was not my first time at Medieval Times. Having grown up in Southern California, I have attended shows there several times. I actually spent my 30th birthday there.

I went with my husband, son, and my friend, Janice, whom was in town from Canada. My son has been there previously but attended with my parents time.  Now that he is six, going on seven, I knew that he would have a better understanding of the show.

This is the first time that Medieval Times has debuted a new show in five years. The writers in the Medieval Times corporate office polled fans on the website and Facebook page for content for the new show. They wanted the fans to give input on what they wanted in a show. The fans replied that they wanted more action!

When arriving at Medieval Times, we were given our team color, which was blue. This would indicate where we would be seated. We were all given blue crowns, and we took a picture with the princess. We were then directed towards our seating.

All of the Knights were led out onto the field and introduced.  We got to see and cheer for our Blue Knight!

Angry Kid was mesmerized by the jousting, fighting, sword fighting, and a performing horse.


We were served a delicious dinner which consisted of Tomato Bisque, Focaccia Bread with Olive Oil and Seasoning, Oven-Roasted Chicken,Larger BBQ Spare Rib, Herb-Basted Potato Split into Two Quarters, and Braided Apple Strudel which we ate sans utensils. They also accommodate vegetarians and food allergies.  I was laughing because Janice was unsure about eating her food without utensils. She even brought some contraband (plastic utensils) with her. But she survived and ate with her hands. Seriously, the food was delicious and there was so much I couldn’t even eat half of it.

Medieval Times was highly entertaining and the food was great. I was quite proud of myself also for preparing ahead of time. When I went for my birthday, ummm six years ago, I had a REALLY bad asthma attack. It seems that the hay and horses were not good for my allergies and asthma. I prepared ahead of time and took some medication. I had no issues.

I found a great YouTube video which features the commercial that Medieval Times is airing on television to advertise their new show. It almost looks like a movie preview, it is soo good.

This show will eventually premiere at all of the Medieval Times locations. We viewed it at the Buena Park location in Orange County, CA. If you are visiting Orange County, or even live here, it is a great event to bring the family to. The kids love Medieval Times.

Disclosure: I was provided tickets to attend this event via Medieval Times. All of the photos and opinions in this post are mine. The video is from Medieval Times.

As soon as I saw the pictures I visualized TeleManiac with Jim Carrey :P

Fun! We've been a bunch of times as well and the last time we went my eldest had a bad asthma attack too. I unfortunately didn't even bring her stuff with me! I might be interested in checking out the new show whenever it hits Toronto. :)

The one we went to was in Florida, about 8 years ago. I was horrified by the amount of whipping they did to the horses! I have not wanted to return.
