Few dinner shows compare to Medieval Times. The long-running attraction combines an 11th-century feast with an exciting family-friendly performance, complete with jousting and sword fights. Perfect for travelers looking for a not-so-typical night out, Medieval Times is a mix of fairy tale and spectacle.
Travel through time to a forgotten age, across the Hudson River to Medieval Times. As you dig in to your “hands-on” 4-course dinner, music and brilliant lights provide the backdrop for a performance featuring heroic knights on spirited horses in a castle setting. Beforehand, stroll the Hall of Arms, watch the knighting ceremony, or check out the relics in the museum of torture.
Shows are popular, especially on Saturdays and holidays, so book your ticket in advance. Packages are available with perks such as VIP seating and group photos.
