Medieval Times Toronto

In 2017 Medieval Times Toronto announced a new storyline. For the first time ever, the lead role was filled by a Queen. Feminism for the win!

The show’s director, Leigh Cordner said the change to incorporate a female lead was made based in part on guest feedback.

The reimagined show celebrates Girl Power while also adding new costumes and music. Medieval Times Toronto’s original revelry is still a thrilling spectacle: horse parades, jousting knights, flight of the falcon and a fun cutlery-free feast.

The Medieval Times Toronto Experience

The Medieval Times castle in Toronto opens 75 minutes before showtime. We suggest arriving early so you can enjoy the Hall of Arms before the show begins.

Upon arrival you’ll be given a lanyard and ticket for your table. If you’ve upgraded to a special package you’ll have the opportunity to have your photo taken with the Queen or one of her handsome knights.

Once inside the Hall of Arms, horse lovers should peak into the stables at the Courtyard of Andalusians. You can then spend time perusing the gift shops, which sell Medieval Times inspired trinkets such as glowing swords and pretty princess crowns. Take a quick stroll through the Museum of Torture and you’ll learn about all the crazy contraptions that were used in the prisons of old England.

If someone in your party is celebrating a special day, you can pay to have them knighted by the Queen in front of cheering crowds. Afterwards, grab a beer chalice or mug of wine before skipping into the Medieval Times Toronto theatre.

Medieval Times Toronto is a 2 hour scripted jousting tournament featuring 6 competing knights who use real weapons. The popular Toronto dinner and a show experience also features performances by beautiful Andalusian, Friesian Stallions, and Quarter horses.
