Roasted chicken, potatoes, dessert, shopping and jousting. Medieval Times Buena Park offers just that and a whole lot more to visitors who enter the Buena Park, California, castle.
What more could a medieval history nut ask for when it comes to dinner and a show?
One in a chain of eight "castles" across the country and in Canada, Medieval Times Buena Park offers patrons an evening of entertainment and dining as they are "transported" back in time to a tournament worthy of a king's court.
The evening begins as visitors are escorted into the castle to browse its great hall and the gift shops and curiosities available at Medieval Times Buena Park. Items available for purchase include figurines, pictures, swords, and replica costumes along with a whole lot more.
Once guests have settled in to the great hall, the show begins with a welcome from the King and Queen in the Medieval Times Buena Park castle's entry room. From there, guests are escorted into a dining area with rows and rows of tables that surround a large central jousting field.
