4 things to know about Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament

It's dinner and a show with a medieval twist, with some sword fighting and jousting thrown in for good measure. The family dinner theater is a popular attraction in Dallas and likely on a lot of bucket lists. If you're planning an outing, here's everything you need to know about visiting the castle.

The Dallas location is the only one in the central United States.

Medieval Times has eight locations in the U.S. (along with a location in Ontario, Canada) and our location, centrally located near the Design District, makes it an ideal attraction to visit during a Dallas getaway. It's a fun and out-of-the-box experience for big groups traveling together or celebrating an occasion, thanks to a generous seating chart and three package options.

Arrive early – it’s a first come, first serve seating arrangement.

There’s usually one evening show time during the week, with more options on weekends. The castle opens 75 minutes prior to the show starting, and those who arrive early get the best seats. You’ll want to be close to see the sword fights in action.

The menu includes some classic favorites.

There aren’t many choices (everyone gets the same dishes) but the meal is included with your admission ticket, so you’ll hear little complaints from us. Dig into your tomato bisque soup during the opening ceremonies and have fun eating your roasted chicken and sweet buttered corns sans utensils - no forks here!

There’s more to see than the show.

You’re heading in early to grab a good seat, so make a stop in the gift shop or the museum to kill some time. There’s also a hall of arms to explore, as well as knighting ceremonies to check out before every show.
