Medieval Times Launches Revamped Show and Menu


TORONTO — Lords, ladies and children gathered at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament at Toronto’s Exhibition Place last night to celebrate the official premiere of its revamped show, which includes new performance elements, new costumes, new choreography and an updated four-course “feast.”

The show, which had a soft opening a couple of weeks ago, has already earned praise.

“It’s received incredible reviews from our guests who have seen it. It’s taking our experience to a new level,” said Saj Rizvi, the VP and GM of Medieval Times, Chicago (currently overseeing the Toronto location) at the launch.

The premiere began with a packed arena of fans cheering as a rider-less, harness-free Andalusian Stallion opened the show for the first “official” time, as part of the new act.

Meanwhile, as the show continued, wenches served an “improved” menu, which featured a healthier twist on the usual fixings of tomato bisque, bread, chicken, ribs, potatoes and apple strudel. “The biggest thing is the castle menu is Canadian-based, except for the proprietary spice blends,” explained Rizvi. “We listened to guest feedback to make sure we could elevate their culinary experience.” More specifically, the menu now includes: improved house-made rib sauce; an apple pastry with less preservatives, calories and sugar; chicken with no preservatives or enhancements and no MSG.

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament was founded in Spain in 1973; it launched in North America in 1983 and currently runs in Toronto and cities, such as Orland, Fla., and Dallas.
