Review: Medieval Times Dinner & Tournaments

Also known as the place that has swords, horses and knights with cool hair! Oh, and they make you eat with your hands. Win!

We had the chance to visit our local Medieval Times the other night in Hanover, Maryland. A HUGE thank you to Rae Ann Cinquanto, Marketing & Sales Manager for the tickets!

It was our first time and all four of us had a blast! We arrived about 75 minutes before the show began which gave us plenty of time to check out the suits of armor, swords and the dungeon. 

We enjoyed excellent service, a fantastic show and the food was delicious.

I was really impressed with the actors, especially those on horseback. They make it look so easy, but I've spent my fair share of time atop a horse so I know how much core strength it takes just to stay put. Never mind trying to do battle, hook a ring or hit a bulls eye while galloping at high speeds. HERE, HERE, KNIGHTS!

Each section is tasked with cheering for the color coordinating knight. Ours was the Blue Knight who ended up winning the tournament because obviously, he was made of awesome!

And then there was the Red & Yellow Knight. Or as I like to call him, The Knight With Cool Hair.

If you've yet to go to Medieval Times, now is the time to get your tickets during their Best Spring Break Ever Buy One Get One Free special! They also offer great group discounts as well as birthday and Anniversary specials.
