Wonderment Abounds During A Medieval Times Educational Show

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!

Imagine a history lesson presented by A King and his Noble Court set within the walls of an 11th century-style castle.

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!

After our tour of the castle, Alesha took us over to the stables to meet the horses.  Up close and personal, the horses were absolutely stunning and huge in stature.  Alesha shared with us that each performer trains and practices with their own very horse in order to develop a strong trust and bond.

Finally, we headed over to the courtyard, where the King and the Princess anxiously greeted us and took pictures with each of my kids.  They welcomed us with “royal arms”!

From there, we entered the arena to watch the newly updated educational show.  A delicious lunch was immediately served, along with a bottle of water.  There was no hearing “I’m starving” from my kids during this particular show!  Instead, we unwrapped our nicely prepared roasted chicken, perfectly seasoned baked potato, and sweet corn on the cob.  It was quite tasty!

My kids especially enjoyed eating with her hands, as no utensils were used during the Medieval Times.  Furthermore, we each received our very own green crown and bracelet, which was a great way for us to get into the spirit, and cheer our Green Knight on!

As we enjoyed our hot meal, the show began.  As promised by Alesha, the matinee at Medieval Times was both educational and entertaining.  I was impressed with the depth of knowledge that they shared around the topic of “Code of Chivalry”.  First, the performers acted out various scenes, each depicting a situation in which someone was the target of bullying.  Then the audience were asked several questions about the best way to handle the situation.  All of the kids loved shouting out their answers!

By the end of the afternoon, my kids had learned about the importance of not belittling others, respecting everyone, and standing up for those who are different.  These are true characteristics of a Noble Knight!

In addition to hearing the positive message, we enjoyed watching the battle scenes and cheered on our Green Knight to victory.  My pre-teen melted when our Green Knight while riding on horseback, handed her the carnation!

Following the performance, we got to interview one of the knights.  My son Aiden, who is fascinated about anything having to do with swords and battles, wanted to know what the swords were made out of.

We were impressed to learn that the actual swords they use in the show are real and made from metal, thus the sparks we saw and the sounds we heard during the battle scenes.
