We chose this for our son's 7th birthday celebration. We went all in and did the celebration package (hint--if you join the birthday club you get free standard admission). The show was enthralling for our son who loved the knights and horses. The food was average. We've also gone to the Dixie Stampede in Tennessee and their food is significantly... More

This was truly an unusual dining experience. The show was totally entertaining and action packed. The food was okay. The food servers remained in character through out. The performers were available after dinner for questions and photos.

I've taken both my son when he was young and now my nine year old grandson. He was not anxious to go but by the time we were there a little while you could see his interest improving! When we made a bathroom visit I was afraid he was going to run someone over because he ran so fast back... More

Great evening out! We all enjoyed everything from the show to the food to the service. To get your pictures taken little pricey though glad we did.

This Friday my wife went to a wine tasting and I was looking for something, last minute, to do with my boys (9 and 11). Well we found a great place that was exciting for my boys. We were able to secure tickets to the event a couple hours ahead of time, which was nice. The parking lot is close... More

The wait to get in is a hassle sometimes but once in everything works well. There are things to see and do before going into the arena. Once in the seats everything moves pretty quickly. drinks and food are served by the winches. The kids like eating with their hands. The food is pretty good but nothing to write home... More

I visited over ten years ago while in High School and enjoyed myself, but when I returned for my second visit (first visit for my wife) for our 6th Wedding Anniversary it was only average. The food is bland and colder than expected once it arrived. We had VIP tickets, so we got a few perks, but they didn't really... More

We have been here several times both in Schaumberg as well as in Florida while on vacation. The kids and grandkids loved the show with the horses and josting. And they especially liked eating the food with their hands. Take the whole family, they will love it.

The place is very good. Keep in mind for seats this is FCFS place, so seats are not guaranteed but from I saw, there is no bad seat. The shop area is OK, nothing special but have drinks and stuff to buy for the kids. The show it self starts very slow, I mean the build up takes a lot... More
