The show and the castle decoration was good. The attire of the actors and the horses was splendid. The food was ok. Two of the horses were spitting foam during the show and that caused us some concern. I hope they treat the horses well and take good care of them. We were a bit uncomfortable with the constant sales push for drink, souvenirs, flags and photographs. Overall it was the evening well spent and we liked the show. The bigger the group, the more the fun. They hold a small ceremony to bestow knighthood on anyone with birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

We made a last minute decision to come here from Lancaster Pa to celebrate my husbands birthday. We upgraded everything to the max to make this very special. The show was great, Horses were beautiful, food was tasty hot and fresh. But we had a major disappointment, Our server he was soo not intrested, he looked exhausted and pretty much there for the paycheck. All the servers around us were so interactive with there family's. My 12 year old just keep looking at the others servers :(

It is a very nice experience for the whole family. The "play" is a little corny but it has to be to entertain a wide range of ages. The food is good though very few choices. It is a special event and/or once a year treat for the family.
Knights, horses, and fun

This is a great experience for visitors and special occasions. Don't pay extra for the "announcement of your special event" though. It becomes a drone with a hundred different events, and people stop listening and clapping after the first few. The knighting ceremony is super cool for a kid's birthday. Alcohol drinks are expensive so be prepared to shell out the money if you want them. It's cheaper to head across the street to TGI Fridays or the Greene Turtle for beer. If you are visiting though, the souvenir glasses are cool. Also, arrive early in order to get a seat inside the castle foyer area prior to being seated inside the show. If you have people allergic to animals, take allergy medicine/inhaler with you. The horses can trigger allergies, especially if sitting up front. The royalty package is worth the extra money since you get to sit closer to the action. The picture is over-priced, but we buy it anyway. I have several. They have the date on them so we can see when different people visited us. Try to find coupons online or join the mailing list prior to the show. Check their specials on their website as well. The full price for royalty package is nearly $60. I just got an email coupon from the mailing list for $33 ($10 more to upgrade to royalty). We've always had a good time there, but keep in mind that they play the same story for about five years before they change it up. Also, keep in mind the total price tag. After tickets, extra drinks, picture, and upgrades, we usually spend about $60 - 75 per person, including the tip you should be adding on at the end. A gratuity is included, but it is small. Tipping is expected.
Always a great time!!!

We attended a show with some friends from out of town and had a great time. We normally come here about once a year and it never disappoints. The food is good, the show is great, and they do a good job of immersing the audience in the time period. I would recommend showing up early because they do little side shows where they "knight" kids, you can meet the cast, have a drink at the bar, and wonder around the shopping area. Just a note: the attraction ticket does not include the tip for you server in the arena and because you don't receive a bill at the end of the meal, I always be sure to bring cash for a tip.
