Inside the stone walls of the 11th century-style castle, Medieval Spain comes to life as six knights, donning authentic armor, clash in a jousting tournament for the title of King’s Champion. Medieval Times is the ultimate family or group dinner show!

Surrender to an age of bravery and honor and witness epic battles of steel and steed during their All-New Show. From ringside seats, discover a feast of the eyes and appetite with more action, more fun and more excitement than ever before.

Not far from Hollywood is the Buena Park Castle. The fortress-like, 1,116 seat Spanish palace is right at home with the red tile roofs, palm trees, and blazing sun of Southern California. And its location couldn’t be better. The castle is only minutes from Disneyland, near the Santa Ana and Artesia freeways. Most of all, we’re proud to say that our show’s stunning battle sequences and authentic Medieval tournament offer one thing Hollywood doesn’t: the thrill of live action.

As you thrill to a rousing live jousting tournament, marvel at awe-inspiring horsemanship and falconry, Medieval Times serves a four-course meal fit for royalty.

The menu includes:

  • Tomato Bisque
  • Focaccia Bread with Olive Oil and Seasoning
  • Oven-Roasted Chicken
  • Larger BBQ Spare Rib
  • Herb-Basted Potato Split into Two Quarters
  • Braided Apple Strudel
  • Larger Beverage Servings and Coffee

Some of the most talented Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament cast members are their horses. The magnificent stallions are born performers. Nearly all of their more than 400 horses are raised at Medieval Times’ Chapel Creek Ranch in Sanger, Texas.

Training begins early. As weanlings, Medieval Times horses are introduced to lead ropes and halters. Saddles come at age 2. Long reins and simple exercises such as lunging follow. At age 3, the horses move to their new homes – one of their nine North American Castles – where they learn advanced-level dressage from a master horse trainer. Then life as a pampered performer begins.

After a few years in the spotlight, the Medieval Times horses move back to the Chapel Creek Ranch. In the serene setting, we make sure our horses live out their lives in royal treatment.
