We are so enjoying our anniversary trip. We went to a dinner theater/gospel concert. The children (well the youngest is 13), put us up in a hotel by ourselves. NICE! And then they took us to Medieval Times, Schaumburg. If you have never been to Medieval times you are really missing out on a fun time.
We arrived approx. 45 minutes early. As you check in you receive a colored crown and are told which knight you will be cheering for. Next you have your picture taken with either the King or Princess. You will have the opportunity to purchase one later if you like.
At this point you will have time to wander some of their shops, visit the dungeon, and view some of the horses. Shortly before you enter the dining area they have a knighting ceremony. You pay extra to participate in this, but it does provide a special memory for a birthday or other occasion. Shortly after the ceremony ends the Chancellor will make a few announcements and then allow groups to enter the arena dining area based on the knight they are cheering for.
The show will begin shortly after you are seated. During the show you will see horses perform, a hawk hunting, and of course the main draw, the knights. They have competitions, jousting, and riding contests. The show occasionally changes, but we always enjoy our time there. My daughters love watching the horses perform. Another fun feature is that as the knights complete a competition they are given carnations to toss to someone in their section. Two of my daughters each received one.
Now, while the show is being performed in the arena in front of you, serfs and wenches serve your dinner. We have never been disappointed in the food. There is no silverware, so you eat with your hands. You will receive soup, which you drink from the bowl, along with chicken, riblets, a potato, garlic bread, and a fruit filled dessert.
I highly recommend attending the Schaumburg, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament. They put on a fabulous show and serve a delicious dinner. I am sure you will not regret going.
Take a minute to watch the slideshow.
The very best news though is one neighbor is going to receive 4 tickets to the Medieval Times Schaumberg Castle. Yes, you heard right, 4 tickets. Are you ready to enter? Let's go!
Thanks for stopping in today! I look forward to seeing you again soon.
