It’s Valentine’s Day, and I’m sure many of you (under normal circumstances) would be interested in seeking fun experiences to share with the special people in your life. May I suggest a chicken dinner and joust? Welcome back to Gaming History You Should Know, where we highlight some of the best independently produced gaming related documentaries. Today, we’re going to talk about an experience that made you feel like you were INSIDE the game, Medieval Times.

Medieval Times is a dinner theater event, heavily inspired by the classic stories of battling knights. For a fixed price (reduced for children), you could watch a live joust and armored combat show while having a full dinner. YouTube Channel Midway to Main Street, which details great theme park history videos, produced this great video on the history of the venue. You can check it out below:

I live in a state that is the absolute last to get any kind of business, so the first time I ever heard of Medieval Times was in the Jim Carey film The Cable Guy (Ed Note: Pretty underrated film if you ask me). I have to admit, when the world returns to some semblance of normalcy, this is a place I’d like to check out. Happy Valentine’s Day!
