How often is it that you can experience feasting with a king and princess like royalty while cheering on handsome and chivalrous knights?  Not often I’m sure.  If there’s one attraction in Toronto that is an absolute must-visit when in town, it’s Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament.  It’s truly an experience like no other!  

A live show featuring a variety of entertainment from Jousting to Horsemanship and all while enjoying a 4-course meal (with vegetarian options).  

“In myth and in legend, the Knight and the horse are forever linked. Few things are held in such great esteem by the Medieval warrior than a stalwart horse, who possesses the bold courage of his master and the quiet strength of his ancestors.”

Spanish horses are absolutely beautiful.

This was our third time at Medieval Times Toronto (Check out our first visit review here) but the first time taking my parents and my son (who is four and absolutely obsessed with knights!).  We experienced the VIP King’s Royalty Upgrade which includes the following:

  • Priority Castle Access
  • VIP First Row All Section Seating or Second Row in Center Section
  • Priority Seating Access
  • Knight’s Rally Towel
  • Cheering Banner
  • VIP Lanyard
  • Framed Entrance Group Photo

You can add this package for only $22 additional per person.  Currently they have a Free Royalty Upgrade ($20 Value Plus Preferred Seating) by using Code: FRWEB with the purchase of each full-priced admission.

There is also a SUMMER SAVINGS special rate of: Adults $42.95 & Kids $32.95 (Save up to $23 per person) by using Code: SMR17 at time of purchase (cannot be combined with other offers or group rates).

My family enjoyed the experience tremendously!  
The food was delicious and flavourful (I only wish they still included the ribs with the chicken that they did on our first visit a few years back) and plentiful (so much that they thankfully provide take-out containers near the end of the show because there’s a lot of leftovers) and they also have great wine (table service) and beer options for the adults.
My children didn’t find it too loud or scary with the pyrotechnics, in fact, they were some of the loudest cheerers!  They also enjoyed the light-up glasses they had (this is an additional purchase) and especially the fact that they were able to eat with their hands.

Before and after the tournament and dinner, we walked around the castle to admire the architecture and artifacts.  We also stopped off at the souvenir stand to purchase a couple of items for the kids.  They offer an array of memorabilia for children and adults.

Although our Black and White Knight did not win the tournaments, it was very exciting to watch and the energy all around was wonderful and thrilling!  Not to mention a most special moment for our little princess when she received the honour of being selected personally from our knight as the “Queen of the Tournament” including having everyone cheer for her and having her photo taken shortly after.

This was an additional cost to keep as a souvenir at the photo stand for $20 or $30 for two souvenir photos which includes photo design and keepsake frame.

You will expect to spend a bit at the show, so I highly recommend taking out some cash prior to arrival but they also offer debit and credit (including portable machines brought to you at your seats during the dinner and show).

Overall, the experience is one-of-a-kind and truly a fun-filled show and lip-smacking and satisfying dinner for the whole family.  Although it may be on the more pricier side including additional expenses that may incur (parking, souvenirs, drinks/adult drinks, additional photos, etc.), I still highly recommend a visit!  My tip would be to take advantage of the great discounts & savings they offer throughout the year for tickets when they come available.

62 Comments on The Royal Treatment at Medieval Times Toronto + VIP Tickets Giveaway

  1. In all the years that the Medieval Times has been in Toronto, I had never gone to see it, or had interest in doing so. My wife and kids were always keen in going, but I always held out. Unknown to me, my son, daughter and wife decided to take me for my birthday last year, a complete surprise. And boy, was I ever surprised, and totally thrilled and excited as I marvelled at the wonderful show, and enjoyed the delicious dinner. We all had the time of our lives, so much so that my wife and I have gone back two more times since then. I couldn’t have been more wrong, or one-sided about something. I’ve learned to at least try something once before criticizing it, and putting it done. The Medieval Times in Toronto is a must-see, and should be #1 on everyone’s list.

  2. My daughter is in love with horses so for her this would be absolutely something unbelievable and my boys they are all in superhero/fighting stage they would love this show

  3. My son loves Medieval Times so much! The thing I enjoy the most is watching his joy! Especially when they have the sword battles!! It is such an exciting show! And I agree, they should bring back the ribs!

  4. We have been here twice with our children. Now I would love to win tickets so that my children can take their kids. So much fun.

  5. We went once & had a blast but really the best part was having kosher food which is an amazing bonus that is not offered in many other places. Delicious too!

  6. The whole experience would be absolutely amazing. My husband and I have never been to Medieval Times or anything quite like it. It would be quite the experience

  7. Watching the knights show while having dinner would be amazing! Would love to take my family since we have never been.

  8. I LOVE the Medieval Times Tournament – It is one of my favourite dinner activities, and I’d be so grateful to win this giveaway! I would love to take my girl friends to the medieval times, as they are also a part of my family <3 My bestie is pregnant and about to have her baby soon, and would LOVE to treat her to a night of good times before the baby arrives!

    P.S Keep up the awesome work blogging <3 Love ya!

  9. I think my kids would love watching all the knights and horses fight. I also heard that the food is actually really good. They would love to eat with their hand 🙂

  13. We have always wanted to attend a show and have yet to! I KNOW we’d all love the excitement of the horses and the whole tournament. The food looks amazing too!

  14. My grandchildren would be overwhelmed with the horses and pageantry! and the thought of eating with their hands would be the best!

  15. I thing getting to see the horses would be great if you could pat them but if not then the Show would be so great to see.

  16. Amazing giveaway, Carol!

    This would be such a fun night out with the family.
