About Medieval Times New Jersey
Travel back to the Middle Ages with knights, horses, jousting, and swordplay while enjoying a “hands-on” four-course feast as the story of bravery and love unfolds before you in this unique entertainment experience.
The pageantry and thrills of an authentic medieval tournament come to life inside the walls of the King’s 11th century-style castle. Six armor-clad Knights on valiant horses seek the title of Champion amidst the clashing of lance and shield and heart-pounding combat.
The Royal Court invites you to join in a spectacle not seen since The Middle Ages. A four-course feast awaits as you watch the incredible Andalusian stallions perform feats of equine skill. The Knights of the Realm compete in thrilling games on horseback as the pageant unfolds and cheers of the King’s noble guests fill the arena. Skill and strength are measured in the combat. Discover which of the Knights shall become Champion.
Royal trumpeters announce the call to the feast, summoning guests to take their seats in the arena. Once inside, guests are greeted by King Phillipe and Princess Leonore, who invite them to share in a regal banquet and cheer for their own Knight of the Realm – designated by six color “zones” of seating (red, blue, yellow, black & white, red & yellow and green) representing six authentic regions of Medieval Spain.
Bill of Fare/Dinner Menu:
- Guests feast on garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, oven roasted chicken, spare rib, herb-roasted potato, pastry of the Castle, coffee and two rounds of select beverages.
- A vegetarian meal available upon request.
- A full-service bar is also available for adult guests at an additional cost.
5 Things to do with kids before a Medieval Times dinner & tournament
- Visit the dungeon. For an additional $2 you can visit the dungeon and view medieval artifacts.
- Tour the Hall of Arms. Before the show you can walk through the Hall of Arms for no additional charge. There are many artifacts from the medieval days on display, like suits of armor.
- Shop the gift shop. Your kids are definitely going to want to check out all the cool medieval items in the gift shop. Before the show is a great time to shop so they can use their purchases during the show.
- Take some cool family photos with all the props.
- Have someone in your family knighted. Many people visiting Medieval Times are celebrating a special occasion. That’s why their are special packages available to help celebrate. For as little as $30 guests can be knighted by the queen, have their name and birthday or other special occasion announced during the show, receive a picture of their knighting, and get special gift. It was my husband’s birthday when we went so we had him knighted and he received a special “Birthday King” crown.
