Visit: Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament, 9051 East Via De Ventura, Scottsdale, AZ 85258
My lords and ladies – welcome to Medieval Times! Inside Queen Maria Isabella’s fully enclosed, 11th Century-style Castle, you’ll indulge in a night of feasting, combat, and revelry.
In the Hall of Arms, you can admire the elaborate Medieval décor. There are coats of arms for many prestigious families and a spectacular array of Medieval weaponry; as well as a Museum of Torture, which features reproductions of torture instruments used during the Middle Ages.
As the festivities begin, trumpeters herald you into the Grand Ceremonial Arena where you are seated in one of the six color-coded sections corresponding to the colors of one of the daring Knights. Serfs and wenches attend to your every need while you feast on a four-course dinner in true Medieval, pre-silverware fashion.
The arena quickly fills with the thunder of hooves as the valiant Knights on horseback enter. You’ll witness incredible live jousting, sword fighting, and awe-inspiring equestrian skills as our six daring knights compete to be champion. Cheer as your knight competes in games of skill and hand-to-hand combat and watch as the royal falconer thrills you with the feats of his magnificent birds of prey.
Queen Maria Isabella is honored to have you dine with her and her royal court. Always a generous host, the Queen has commanded her royal chefs to cook her favorite meal just for you.
Medieval Times’ noble guests feast on garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, herb-basted potatoes, the dessert of the Castle, coffee and two rounds of select beverages. You may also order from the full service bar before, during, and after the show. After dinner, be sure to browse the castle’s Hall of Arms to discover fascinating Medieval artifacts.
