Have you met the Queen at Medieval Times New Jersey?
My first introduction to the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament was back in 2002. During my honeymoon, my new father-in-law invited my husband and I out for dinner at the Medieval Times in Kissimmee, Florida. We were caught up in our newlywed bliss, and the knights, a king, horses made a magical time all the more special and one of my favorite memories from my honeymoon.
I’ve longed to go back ever since our honeymoon. It’s actually been on my New Jersey bucket list for some time to take my boys to the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament in Lyndhurst, New Jersey.
This January, we had the chance. The news of changes in the Medieval Times program had been spreading. A queen would now take charge of the kingdom. One of her first royal acts was to invite bloggers from across her kingdom to join her for a majestic feast.
I could not have been more thrilled to be invited to the castle. Add in that the invitation was a few nights before my birthday and I was ready to mark another milestone with dinner at a Medieval Times castle. We laughed, feasted, cheered on our favorite knight and pretended to be royals in a castle. My big kid, tween, teen, and husband all enjoyed every minute.

The Medieval Times arena is divided into 6 colored sections. Each section has their own night to cheer for.
During our night at Medieval Times we were rooting for the red and yellow knight. It was a close battle of horsemanship and swordplay, but he eventually won Queen Isabella’s tournament of knights.
Witness fighting about the royal court
Witness the drama that occurs with a queen in charge. Not all of Queen Isabella’s court agree with how she’s governing.
Admire the grace and beauty of the kingdom’s most beautiful animals.
Throughout the Medieval Times dinner we were treated to dazzling performances from the horses.
We saw the horses in battles as knights raced with them in jousting matches with other knights. We saw them in more peaceful moments as they pranced and posed for the Mastress of Horses, Lady Liliana.
There is also a point during the dinner where the royal falcon makes an appearance. When the trainer released the falcon to fly about the arena we all watched every movement in awe.
