Features: Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament is located in Hoffman Estates a suburb located in the greater Woodfield area just northwest of Chicago. This attraction features jousting matches from the 11th century featuring beautiful Andalusian horses. 

Your wench will serve you barbecued ribs and roasted chicken, which you’ll eat with your fingers. Each section of the audience cheers for a different knight. The show features brilliant costumes and the weaponry of the time, including swords, lances, maces and bolas. The regal Andalusian horses are known for their glorious physique and noble temperament. The horses used in the shows are bred and trained at the Medieval Times Chapel Creek Ranch in Texas. 

Why We Go: With 2 hours of thrilling entertainment and delicious food, what's not to love about Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament? The family-friendly Chicago show is held in a replica of an 11th century castle located in Schaumburg IL., and features employees dressed up in authentic period attire. 

  • Free Parking: Complimentary parking is included with every ticket purchased for the Medieval Times Chicago show. 
  • More Than Just Dinner: Come for the dinner, stay for the torture! In addition to world-class entertainment and food, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament offers a bar, dance hall, and a torture museum featuring an impressive collection of macabre torture implements. 

Inside Knowledge: The knights are great entertainment, but the real stars of the Medieval Times Dinner Theater Chicago show are the horses. Each horse is specially bred and raised to perform. The show uses Spanish Andalusian horses which were the very same breed of horses used by Medieval royalty. 

Do's and Don'ts: 

  • Do Arrive Early: The Medieval Times Chicago castle opens 90 minutes before the show, and seating for the jousting tournament and dinner is first come, first serve. 
  • Do Eat Like a King: While watching the jousting show, enjoy a four course dinner menu featuring delicious Medieval fare such as soup, chicken, ribs, and a mouthwatering dessert. 
  • Don't Be Afraid to get Messy: There are no knives and forks at the Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament. Rather, guests are encouraged to eat with their hands, just like the knights of yore once did.  
  • Don't Be Polite: Manners go out the window at the Medieval Times Dinner Theater Chicago. Crowd participation is encouraged, so root for your favorite knight by cheering loudly, and booing even louder at his rivals.
