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)
