One of Z's friends had been and could not stop talking about how amazingly fun it was.
Z had been obsessing over going as well - he poured over his friend's program from Medieval Times, talked to me about knights and horses, asked questions about kings and queens, and occasionally begged for the opportunity to be "just like Conner" and go to Medieval Times.
So, with his 5th birthday right around the corner, it seemed like the perfect time to grant his wish. (and, secretly, my wish as well- this former History major has a bit of a thing for knights, kings, queens and jousting!)
So, what did we think?
I can say with all honesty that my son, his dad and I have never had so much fun.
So, what did we love?
From the moment you enter the "castle" you are transported back in time. I've never been called "m'lady" well...ever, but this place "m'lady"ed the heck out of me!
|My view upon entering the "castle"|
|The king and princess address their valiant knights...|
|This look- the whole time. He couldn't drink it all in fast enough.|
We used our fingers for everything which made the the experience even more "authentic". Even my kid, the one who hates meat, went to town on this meal.
|Yum! The parents sitting beside us split a bottle of wine... SMART (and fun!). That's exactly what I would do next time- I'm sure that bottles of wine are super authentic to this time period!|
WE WON! When you arrive at Medieval Times you are assigned to a colour, which corresponds with the knight you will cheer for that evening. We were green, and our green knight was the winner! It was so exciting! Even better, all the knights come out into the lobby and take pictures. It was such a thrill for my little sweetie to stand beside the green knight and get his picture taken!
|Winner, winner chicken dinner!|
The entertainment factor, the food, the fun, and the absolute joy it brought my son makes this the perfect family outing!
And now, for the contest...
