When you think of Southern California kid friendly attractions, what first comes to mind?
Disneyland, Legoland, Magic Mountain?
Well, how about Medieval Times?
I know me neither.
But, I was recently invited to attend one of their shows with my family. And let me tell you it was not at all what I expected.
First of all, my kids could barely contain themselves. Every costume, stunt, and battle had them not only at the edge of their seats but right out of them.
Which in some circumstances can be a problem. But not here. The seats and tables are set up in a bar formation. Which makes it very easy to contain multiple kids simply by putting an adult at either end. Kinda like being in a movie theater without the need to be quiet.
Dinner comes right to them. A utensil free feast of soup, bread, chicken, ribs, and pastry. Now I’ll admit I was a bit surprised they didn’t have a few kid friendly choices. But there is a full bar, for the grown ups of course. So you win some you lose some.
Now, we left the two year old at home. And I’m glad we did. Two hours is a bit too much sitting in one place for her. But, the five to seven year old age group definitely had plenty to entertain them.
Although I will admit the show culminates in some very life like hand to hand combat. With real swords axes and other barbaric weapons I do not know the names of. So even teenagers could really get a kick out of this spectacle. Yet, I had to remind the younger ones it was all pretend. A few times.
Last but not least. As a horse woman myself. I am happy to report that all the horses are healthy happy and in very good condition. Knowing what it takes to maintain a horse I kinda wondered if this may not be the case but was happily surprised.
Now for the best part. You can win tickets to try it out for yourself.
