I’ve always wanted to go to Medieval Times. The first time I learned about it was when I saw the movie The Cable Guy. In it there is a scene where Jim Carrey does battle with (that guy that used to be cool but is now a nerd) Matthew Broderick. My first reaction to that scene was, ‘hey I want to do that!’ Unfortunately just like my dream to fight a monkey with a pocket knife, Medieval Times won’t allow me to battle a friend in knight armour. While not a total disappointment, Medieval Times still gets a thumbs up from me because they still showcase other people fighting with swords.
I took advantage of a recent half price deal and went to a show with a couple of friends. The show itself is very entertaining and educational. I got to see horses (which didn’t smell from where I was sitting), a hawk that flew around, some kind of medieval sports tournament, and some awesome sword fights. My favourite part from Medieval Times was that I got to see the entire show while eating chicken with my fingers. The food isn’t anything special, but being able to watch a live show and be served by a friendly wait staff really made the trip enjoyable. The show is very educational, exciting, and both adults and children will have fun.
