Miss S and I recently took a road trip from Michigan to Illinois with a couple of quick side trips into Wisconsin. The trip was all about taking a step back in time to watch knights joust at Medieval Times Dinner Theater, visit the Wisconsin State Fair and stop to say hi to Santa.

Emma was able to join us on a few of our adventures and we were thrilled that she joined us at Medieval Times.

Now that Em is adulting she is able to travel with me less and less. I’m so thankful she joined Miss S and I here.

Medieval Times

There are Medieval Times Dinner Theaters located across the country. Lucky for us that includes one not too far from Chicago in Schaumburg, IL.

Miss S was thrilled at the thought of going to see knights and horses.

When we arrived at Medieval Time we were assigned a knight color. There are six different knights, each represented by a different color.

We were assigned the Blue Knight and were seated in the blue area of the arena.

Our ticket came complete with cheering banners to wave our Blue Knight to victory which Miss S absolutely loved. She used her banner zealously throughout the show.

It’s A Jousting Adventure at Medieval Times Dinner Theater

The show includes an opening ceremony, knights on horseback completing challenges, a falcon presentation and, of course, jousting with a story narrated by the queen.

During the show, the knights impressed us with their excellent horsemanship skills.

Jousting was next and the sounds were loud as the poles smashed against shields.

As knights tumble from their horses it becomes a knight to knight combat until only one knight remains.

The show wouldn’t be complete without a falconer showing us how he calls a falcon back to him after it has been flying around the arena.

Dinner is Served – Including Vegetarian

During the Medieval Times show, dinner is served.

However, no silverware is provided so you’ll have to use your hands to eat. Don’t worry, wet wipes are provided before and after the meal being served.

I ordered vegetarian meals for Emma and Ms. S and the regular meal for me.

We all had tomato soup with a roll to start.

After our soup, Emma and Ms. S. were served hummus with veggies and pita plus a big bowl of vegetable soup in addition to a baked potato and corn on the cob.

I was served roasted chicken, baked potato, and corn on the cob.

We were all offered dessert and our choice of beverage (coffee, water, soda).

We all loved the food and there was plenty of it. None of us finished our meals and were offered to-go containers if we wanted to take home our meals.

There is also a bar wench that comes around to take drink orders if you’d like something a bit stronger. We offered a drink with a blinky cup. Em and I enjoyed the beverage. Miss S took the empty blinky cup home as a souvenir.
