Our family had a fantastic time. With older teenagers, you expect attitude and boredom on family vacations. This was an evening of fun. To see 4 teenagers 15-19 cheering, clapping, screaming and yes, even heckling the “enemy” it was awesome.

The kids loved it. They really got into cheering for the knights. My 7 year old is a picky eater and he actually ate some of the food. Perfect family night out.

Food was fantastic! Show was entertaining, but I was ready to go at about the hour and a half mark. They had a mixup with our tickets and we did not get seated until the show started so getting drinks and stuff was delayed. We arrived early so they thankfully had time to get things worked out. Needless to say we were a little stressed with the kids looking at us for direction.

This was our second trip to Medieval Times, and honestly the only reason we stayed in Myrtle Beach. Our kids absolutely love the show. The food was outstanding and the show was very entertaining.
There were only two negatives to this trip:
1. The sound was a bit muffled at times which made it hard to hear what the performers were saying.
2. There was a man in front of us who was way over served. He was so intoxicated that he was having a hard time walking straight and was extremely loud and obnoxious. He should have been cut off before reaching that point; especially considering the amount of families and small children around.

This was a great experience for our family! The entertainment was fabulous. All the employees were super friendly and kind. The food was good too, which is surprising because sometimes at dinner shows the food lacks flavor, not here. The kids got the regular meal and I got the vegetarian option (highly recommend).
The show was well executed and was very entertaining. Worth every penny of admission/food. They entertained both my 13 and 9 year old, which could be a difficult feat at times!
The only thing I’d improve on is the prices at the gift shop, way too high. I know that’s normally the case at places like this, but the prices here seemed extremely overpriced.

Everything was fabulous, the food was tasty, the show was fun and the staff was great! My son was struggling with the loud noise and I had to take him out, one of the staff noticed and gave him ear muffs, I couldn't be more thankful! The ear muffs made all the difference and my son loved the show. I didn't get the gentleman's name but thank you so much!

We had a wonderful time.! It's a little drawn out and the acting is a bit Shatner-y. The food was decent, corn a bit overcooked for my liking, but I'm Midwestern. I liked his the actors interacted with the crowd even during covid times. I still prefer the Minnesota Renaissance Festival jousters, sorry folks.

We have visited the Pirate dinner show and really enjoyed the show. This show was pretty boring however the food was great and service was even better. I would not return but it was a decent dinner.

We went to Midevil times last night in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. My family of 5 including my husband, myself and 3 kids ages 12, 10 and 8. I really wanted to enjoy the show but as soon as the horses came out into the arena they were foaming at the mouth and drooling so badly that I become so upset I felt nauseous. They were made to keep their heads up the whole time with very tight reins that were choking them and their tongues were hanging out at times. The had wild eyes and looked honestly in a state of terror. They were beautiful creatures and they did do a wonderful job with what they had been trained to do. They looked in pain when they had to bow with heavy men on their backs. I don’t want to see a whip or see them drool and foam when eating dinner. I wanted to believe they were treated wonderfully but I felt so different. I have to question do they get days off to run outdoors in the grass and be a horse?? Do they even have that quality of life!??? Please provide evidence that they do and please explain the constant foaming and tight reigns in their throat!?

As for the dinner and the venue itself it was fine. The place was clean and seemed to be trying to have people social distance. The food was just okay but I know you pay more for the show. The ice cream desert wasn’t acceptable. Tiny and no taste. The rest of the food was decent enough and expected for what it is.

Like I said the poor creatures did a beautiful job doing what they were trained to do but how can we enjoy a show when we are looking at them being mistreated? Who could enjoy the actual show with that overshadowing it?? Please explain yourselves. I would never come back to see them in pain.

Thank you for joining us at the castle, Lady Jessica! We are currently operating at a limited capacity to ensure a fun and safe "knight" out for all of our royal guests and distancing between each party in our arena. In regards to your concern about our horses, they are treated like absolute royalty. The horses that you saw drooling were the Andalusian stallions. They drool for a number of reasons – none of which are negative. Many of our horses are ridden and trained with copper bits, which are more palatable than typical iron bits. Because the horses find the bit ‘yummy’ they will increase their salivation levels (much like a person chewing gum). Some horse breeds and genders are generally more prone to salivation – Andalusian stallions being among those. Regarding the tight reins: our horses are trained and ridden in the classic Spanish Dressage style. This style of training implements an increased level of contact through the reins and bit. However, the reins are simply used to aid the rider. The majority of communication between horse and rider occurs through leg pressure and the rider’s seat. Reins, although an important aid, are not used to inflict pain or discomfort on the horse. Our riders are communicating with an animal that doesn’t speak the same language… body language, reins, and voice cues are all aids that the horses and riders use to communicate with one another. The horse shows communication through his ears. Ears turned back are a sign that the horse is listening to his rider and awaiting the next instructions. Our horses are adored by their riders and care-takers. They are not simply props in a show, they are our beloved stars and are treated with the upmost respect, care, and love. We take pride in our horses and their quality of life which stars from the day they are born at our Chapel Creek Ranch to once they retire back to the ranch after their performing years. We thank you again for visiting and sharing your experience with us.
