Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament (Schaumburg, IL)
Disclosure: Our family was welcomed as guests at the castle in exchange for this post to be shared online.
We attended Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament this weekend as a family. I love how the staff through-out the “castle” stay in character the whole time.
The food is described in playful medieval times language. The soup is “dragon’s blood” that “taste’s like tomato soup.” Part of the main course is described as “baby dragon” that “taste’s like chicken.”
My MIL was also able to join us. It was her first time attending. She loves horses so she loved it.
Theodore too had not attended before this weekend. He wasn’t sure what was going on for a bit. That reaction face? Classic.
We got to view some of the horses before the show in a viewing window near the Museum of Torture. The museum worth looking at once, but we skipped over several of the plaques explaining exactly what the devices did. Wesley was all excited about it before we went in and then had instant regret. Ha!
The knights jousting and sword fighting is fun to watch. You can get an idea of the details in the video above.
There is a lot going on at various time. Here is an example of that. It also shows how it’s cool to know that children three and under can get in for free if you are okay with them being a lap child.
If you haven’t been recently you should consider going soon. There are almost always ticket specials going on for groups, around the holidays, and online if you keep an eye out. Get all the details you need on show pricing, free parking, and dates at MedievalTimes.com/Chicago.
