Go Green Knight!
Mar 10, 2014 by: Andy L from Annapolis, Maryland
The first time I came here was for my 21st birthday. It was a blast. This weekend I returned for my 30th birthday, Even more exciting than i remember. The sense of camaraderie among those in our section created an exciting atmosphere. The falcon was really neat, the dancing horses were breathtaking and the surprise outcomes always get me! Green knight looks like John Snow from Game of Thrones so that added to the experience! Great time for kids of all ages.
Great Show and surprising good food

Great Show and surprising good food. Didn't really know what to expect when we entered but older children had made arrangements so we went along. The soup was excellent and the chicken dinner with baked potato was very good. The show in general was interesting and the dancing horses were superb as ere the trained falcons. Grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the show and were very entertained. In general everyone had a very good time. Good advice is to avoid the gift shop as most items are very overpriced. l
Expensive place for what you get
Feb 26, 2014 by: Exahiyan from Laurel, Maryland
The food is very marginal and they rip you when you try to buy tickets online beforehand with "access fees" driving up the cost. I can have a very nice steak dinner in an upscale restaurant for what it costs here. The "show", once you've seen it, holds no value.
Great Show - Disappointing food and service
Feb 21, 2014 by: lauramaymuse from Ramstein-Miesenbach, Germany
We were eager to discover the magic behind this legendary franchise. Always open to new experiences, we bought tickets to the show. As soon as we entered the "castle" we quickly caught onto the mass production assembly line mentality of the employees. Upon entry, you are shuttled like cattle into a herd. Somehow, we were able to find our way up to the bar for drinks. Expect overly priced beverages, no matter whether it is a soda or beer (also, we must report that the beer was absolute skunk, which caused several people to get ill). Our report to Management about that issue went un-addressed - until we emailed our concerns later that week. The food was at best: average. Considering the large crowds they attempt to serve, and in a restricted time-frame, it probably could be much worse. However, perhaps they should adjust their time parameters, so that their customers can feel a bit less rushed, and have more time to enjoy the entertainment. The show is quite a feat! Their production is astounding!! We loved the horses and the showmanship. The 'competition' was staged, but delightful. It was a fun experience - especially if you eliminate the bad drinks and the hurried meal. We won't return. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't avoid this place based on our one experience. It's worth a try - especially if they have worked to address some of these issues.
Big fan of the Medieval Times experience

This was my 3rd visit to Medieval Times, once to the Toronto location and twice to this location. It's an experience unlike any other, dinner and entertainment all wrapped up into one event. Yes, parking at the Arundel Mills Mall does suck, but that's not really the fault of Medieval Times. Just get there with plenty of extra time before your show starts (1 hour at least) and you will eventually find a spot. Once you're inside you can visit the bar and gift shops, or just walk around and check out the castle while waiting for the entertainment to start. For the show it is arena style seating, the sections are divided up by colors which correspond to a specific Knight. Whichever section you sit in is the Knight you root for. The food comes out piece by piece throughout the tournament so you can enjoy it while cheering on your champion, or perhaps jeering the other Knights. This time I went with my girlfriend and my family and we all had a blast. Can’t wait for our next visit!
