About Us

About Us JoustersThere's a reason Medieval Times is the No. 1 dinner attraction in North America: Our unique combination of a medieval banquet and thrilling competition between Knights captures the imaginations of all ages.

Our History
The first Medieval Times castle opened in Majorca, Spain, in 1973. Ten short years later, Medieval Times ventured overseas and into North America with its Kissimmee, Florida, Castle. The reception was immediate and overwhelming.

With the resounding success of the Florida Castle, plans were immediately developed to expand the company on this new continent. Nine castles now exist across North America to entertain, delight and amaze.

1983 - Kissimmee, Florida (near Orlando)
1986 - Buena Park, California
1990 - Lyndhurst, New Jersey (near New York City)
1991 - Schaumburg, Illinois (near Chicago)
1992 - Dallas, Texas
1993 - Toronto, Ontario, Canada
1995 - Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
2003 - Hanover, Maryland (near Baltimore and Washington, D.C.)
2006 - Atlanta, Georgia
