MEDIEVAL TIMES DINNER & TOURNAMENT
Opened in June 1986, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament brings history to life with a two-hour medieval tournament and a four-course feast, served by “wenches” in the tradition of the day (even your beer comes in a pewter tankard). The 70,000 square foot castle is located on seven acres in the heart of Buena Park’s Entertainment Zone. Offering shows 365 days a year, the European-style castle features a soaring tower, elaborately decorated Hall of Arms, the Knight Club, an outdoor courtyard, an extensive gift shop, Museum of Torture and an indoor stable area where guests can view some of the castle’s horses as they prepare for each evening’s show. The air-conditioned Grand Ceremonial Arena seats 1,110 guests and features state-of-the-art sound, lighting and a special effects system.
During the tournament, royal guests (that’s you and me) cheer for one of six Knights as each competes in medieval games, authentic jousting matches and ground battles with sword and shield. The action intensifies as the tournament continues in search of one Knight who will be crowned champion by the King. (Prices range from $35.95 - $57.95)
