Spring break is finally here! If you're looking for something new to do with the family, take a trip to Medieval Times. They're offering special prices and activities just for spring! My family had never been there, so we were thrilled to be invited to a Blogger Knight. There was great food, beautiful horses, falconry and jousting–basically everything my tween girls like all in one place! We visited the Baltimore location, but there are eight other locations nationwide.
When you arrive at Medieval Times, you receive crowns, and there are six different color schemes. Each one coordinates with a section of the stadium and a knight who will be competing that evening. That's who you root for! There is a lot of cheering and audience participation. We had hoarse voices by the end of the night! The jousting and competitions were so much fun to watch.
My girls love horses, so we really enjoyed all the pageantry and the dressage display. There is also a master falconer who you can see out in the lobby ahead of the show, before he does his demonstration during the show. The entire show ran about 2 1/2 hours, plus you want some time beforehand to see everything in the large lobby. Keep that in mind if you're bringing young ones.
We were so impressed with the food! The menu is the same for everyone, though you can request a vegetarian or gluten-free meal. You eat with your hands–which my kids loved (and continued doing for a few days after we got home). We found the roasted chicken and all of it just delicious. They also serve drinks from the bar.
Spring pricing is $37.95 for adults and $29.95 for Students & Kids when use the online code SB17. On Tuesday, April 11 through Thursday, April 13th, kids can do FREE Junior Knights Training before the 5pm show. Closed toe shoes are required (it's on the sandy stadium floor), and kids must be between ages 5-12. Plus, all kids each receive a FREE activity book. Now is a great time to visit!
