Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Medieval Times (Toronto)

Family Tested

Good times!

In the huge 11th Century "castle" (complete with coats of arms, stables where we could admire the stallions and royal thrones where we could sit to take our own pictures) we were called to enter the 1,350-seat banquet to the resounding sound of genuine trumpets. We were all given crowns the colour of the knight we would be cheering on during the show. "Is he really dead?" anxiously inquired my young humanist when our knight collapsed after a fatal blow. The truth is the actors are also skilled warriors and superb riders. When they fought in the darkness, real sparks were flying from swords clashing together! The master of ceremonies' comments were often hilarious. The section cheering for the Green Knight was described as "scum" from the bad part of the town, invited only thanks to the king's generosity. (Anyone who's paid the hefty price for their ticket gets the joke.) Check their specials throughout the year. I think the experience is worth every penny, thanks to dynamic actors and a very entertaining show. The admission includes a full meal served during the show by costumed waiters who will confide to your kids that they will just love the taste of baby dragon.
