This Thursday we attended a show at Medieval Times in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. On Thursday’s they do half off admission, so we took advantage of it. Upon arrival we found out who our knight, was where our seats were, and we also got crowns. We had the black and white knight, so we got to wear cute lil’ black and white crowns. Our table was table 13 all the way at the top row, which wasn’t so bad. The stage is in the center and the place isn’t too big, so we were able to see everything.
So basically, during the whole show you’re served a 3-course-meal. Everybody got the same meal of tomato soup, garlic bread, ribs, a chicken leg, and an apple turnover. Now, when you’re a vegetarian like I am, that doesn’t sound too appealing. Luckily they had an option for me which consisted of hummus and veggies and rice with potatoes. All of the food you get, you have to eat as if you were in the medieval times. This means that you don’t get forks, spoons, or knives. Sounds pretty awesome, right? I mean who doesn’t want to eat with their hands? It’s just so much fun! That’s not the only thing that makes this show fun. You’re supposed to cheer for your knight, which means you’re allowed to scream at the top of your lungs. It’s great.
Now, I must say there were only a few things that upset me about the show. One, our knight was doing terrible. He was the first one to be killed off, which I was super disappointed about. Anyways, my meal was a little cold when it was served to me. I am thankful they gave me a spoon though because they spared me having to eat rice with my hands. But still, I was hoping it’d be scorching hot, not lukewarm. Also, I must say I felt a little bad for the horses during the show. I’m sure they’re treated well and taken good care of, but, I mean, if I was a horse I wouldn’t want to be used for this show. That’s just my opinion. Who knows though, maybe one of those horses is living out their dream there.
All in all, I felt that it was a very entertaining experience. It’s something for people of all ages to enjoy and have fun. I would recommend this to anyone who’s looking for a unique way to spend time with family or friends.
