Lords & Ladies! May we have your attention? Arizona's 1st Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament is set to open in Scottsdale in 2019!
The castle address is 9051 East Via de Ventura in the Talking Stick Entertainment District, directly behind Salt River Fields, in Central Scottsdale. As you may recall, the new Great Wolf Lodge will also be in that same district, which is about a two hour drive from Tucson.
Never been to a Medieval Times? Here is what to expect! "Travel back to the 11th century and watch six brave knights compete in games of skill astride magnificent pure Spanish horses. Lances splinter against shields of steel, swords spark in combat, and a champion emerges to the sound of a cheering crowd. During the tournament, guests enjoy a four-course feast in true medieval, pre-silverware fashion. A sweeping musical score and brilliant lights create a spellbinding experience that blurs the boundary between fairy tale and spectacle!"
The Scottsdale castle will be 79,000 square feet and the Grand Ceremonial Arena will seat up to 1,000 guests. Aside from the arena, the castle will also house a Hall of Arms, 25 horses and stables, museum, offices, and meeting spaces for private parties.
Pricing is not yet confirmed. Each ticket will include admission to the two-hour tournament and a four course feast. Vegetarian, gluten-free, and dietary restrictions will be accommodated. Upgrade options include VIP seating and access, souvenirs, knightings, and more! Beverages, merchandise, and museum tickets will also be available for sale inside the castle.
If you will be traveling back in time with your baby or toddler, note that Medieval Times does have a lap child policy, which allows children 3 and under to get in free as long as they sit in your lap and can share your meal.
The Scottsdale Medieval Times will be the 10th location in North America. The other nine locations can be found in: Atlanta, GA; Baltimore, MD; Buena Park, CA; Chicago, IL; Dallas, TX; Lyndhurst, NJ; Myrtle Beach, SC; Orlando, FL; and Toronto, ON.
