Medieval Times in Chicago is a great place for Groups!


Last week I was asked to visit Medieval Times in Schaumburg (Chicago area) for  lunch and to learn more about group, the following opinions are my own. When I showed up at the castle I saw buses arriving with a bunch of school aged kids getting off and it reminded me of going to Medieval Times with my husband when we were in high school; it was our senior field trip. I had such a great time on that trip. We cheered for the Green Knight and if I remember correctly, he won. That was back in 1996; almost 20 years ago! (Now I feel old.)

Medieval Times

Note: This was from my last trip.

This time I forgot my good camera at home, and wouldn’t it figure that I was right in the front row?! I wouldn’t have been able to get such great pictures with BabyQ on my lap anyway.

If your group goes during a day time show, they do an educational aspect for about 30 minutes before the “normal” show starts because in order for a school to go on this trip, there has to be education involved. They do a question and answer session to learn about the Medieval Times and tell you more about the animals used in the show. The actual show is a tad bit different since so much time is used at the begging for the educational show. Having seen both, I didn’t notice a huge difference, so you’re definitely not missing out on anything.

For the lunch show, the meal is a bit smaller than a normal show. At the lunch we received garlic bread, roasted chicken, herb-basted potato, sweet corn on the cob, and a cookie. Included in your lunch is either Pepsi or Lemonade as well as water and coffee. If you go to an evening show you will also receive tomato bisque soup and a spare rib with your meal. The food is VERY good! Remember lift up your right hand- that’s your fork, now lift up your left hand- that’s your knife! There are no utensils in the Medieval Times castle! (Not so easy with a baby on your lap!)
