Where can you go on a cool lunch date with a Knight, a King, and Princess? To Medieval Times in Buena Park, of course! Recently over spring break, my three kids and I went to see the new Medieval Times Educational Show. Although it had been a few years since our last visit, my children still remembered what a great time they had! As soon as we arrived, my son exclaimed “A castle, a real live castle!” That was just the beginning of our adventure!
Immediately were met by a very kind tour guide, named Alesha, who took us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the castle. She shared with us that the newly revised educational show was geared especially towards schools, families, and students of all ages.
The show still features the same epic battles between the knights and has a lot of sword fighting. However, the battle scenes have been toned down a bit and the show is more appropriate for younger audiences.
Alesha liked to referred to herself as a “Medieval Times” nerd! She told us that Medieval Times was her absolute favorite place to visit during childhood and that the highlight of her summer was going on a field trip to the “great big castle” in Buena Park.
During our tour, it was easy to see why Medieval Times is similar to a castle right out of a fairytale filled with specular horses, knights, a king, and a princess. It was truly magical to see the knights in shining armor, a wide array of Medieval swords and breastplates, and even a Knighting Station, where you can become an official “Knight” yourself!
