Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament

Located in Central Scottsdale, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament transports guests hundreds of years back in time to a period when chivalrous knights dueled for honor, love and kings. From the moment you enter the “castle,” every aspect, attraction and character displays life as it would be in the 11th century, albeit with some modern creature comforts! This family-friendly venue will undoubtedly provide an entertaining evening filled with laughter, excitement and suspense!

The Show at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament

On the roster of entertainment, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament in Scottsdale presents a show unlike any other. First, the Battle of Champions awaits guests as they witness two armored warriors swing their weapons in a masterfully coordinated scene. Next, the show displays its majestic horses who gallop with speed as the two riders aim their lances to the delight of the queen. More battles ensue until the vanquished yields and the crowd applauds with an uproar. The beautiful falcons are next, where the Royal Falconer not only expounds upon the history of these birds, but he or she also shows what it takes to become a companion with them. If you happen to love the horses, Medieval Times excellently displays an impressive equestrian show. In fact, the horses receive advanced-level dressage from the moment they are born and each one is carefully placed with the right rider (or knight in this case) every time.

Dinner & Drinks with the Queen

Since these battles take place in 11th Century Spain, the kitchens prepare a four-course feast similar to those eaten on the Iberian Peninsula. To begin, noble guests receive crunchy garlic bread and a tomato bisque soup, and then the roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn and herb-basted potatoes arrive with your choice of non-alcoholic beverage. Additionally, the queen does not forget about her vegetarian guests, as they will also receive a feast fit for royalty. In terms of libations, Medieval Times can still provide a stein of ale; however, you can also order drinks such as margaritas, pina coladas, daiquiris, etc. Though the margarita may be an anachronism on your table, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament is all about fun and entertainment.

Additional Info

Medieval Times has three different packages to choose from: The Queen’s Royalty Package, the Royalty Package, and the Celebration Package. Each one offers different benefits, but for more details, check the website. There is complimentary on-site parking, and the castle opens 75 minutes before show time. Located at 9051 E. Via de Ventura, Scottsdale AZ, 85258, Medieval Times provides an exciting night any day of the week!
