A Medieval Times review from a family of five as they meet the first queen of the castle. Swords, knights, food, family fun and more! Plus, ticket giveaway.
We recently had the opportunity to check out Medieval Times in Lyndhurst, NJ as they welcomed their first queen of the castle! We love to check out local area attractions as a family and our trip to Medieval Times was among our favorites!
Medieval Times Review
The Lyndhurst castle was such a fun place to be! The castle itself was full of swords, armor, knights and more. We were able to arrive early and be entertained by all going on inside the castle pre-show – a HUGE bonus to a mom of three little ones.
Waiting is never fun for anyone, especially not kids, but they loved their wait time at the castle – and of course had to make some sword and princess purchases while waiting.
A major highlight of their wait time was getting to meet the queen herself, along with all of the knights! What a cool experience!
My kids are ages 2, 4 and 6. My 6 year old enjoyed himself the most as he was thoroughly involved in the story-line of the night. The queen had inherited the throne at the passing of her father, the previous king. As a firm but kind ruler respected across the land, it was wonderful for my kids to see a strong female leader in charge. My 4 and 2 year olds enjoyed the action but were a bit lost on the storyline. They loved the horses and the sword fights, and my daughter even caught a flower from the Red and Gold Knight 🙂
I have such fond memories of going to Medieval Times with my family as a child, and to be able to share that experience again with my own kids was priceless. The food was wonderful, the showmanship was awesome, and we were treated well throughout the night. I left without a single complaint and very happy children (who have begged to go back since).
We ended the night meeting all of the knights and getting their autographs! What awesome family fun for all of us!
