With the massive popularity of fantasy card games like Dungeons and Dragons, invented in the 1970s, and the popularity of recent TV shows like 'Game of Thrones', as well as countless films, Americans can't get enough of the Middle Ages.
The Middle Ages were a unique time that some may even wish were still here. There is such a draw to this era, that some build faux villages and reenact period dramas on the weekend out in the woods. For kids it's a different story. Seeing in real life only what they have seen in Saturday morning cartoons - horses, kings and queens, princesses, and knight games, is a dream come true!
In case you're unfamiliar, Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament is a family-oriented establishment that, on the outside resembles an 11th century castle. On the inside of this castle they hold nightly dinner theater shows featuring staged medieval-style games, sword-fighting, and jousting performed by a cast of 75 actors and more than 20 horses.
Medieval Times has nine locations nationwide, with one right here in Dallas, located at 2021 N Stemmons Fwy. We've been told they are having some major discounts leading up to and during this Labor Day weekend.

Although the Medieval Times dinner theater chain was founded in Kissimmee, Florida, in December 1983, their office headquarters are in Irving, Texas.
You may recall mention of the chain in films such as The Cable Guy (1996), and a long cameo in Garden State (2004). It has also been featured in TV shows such as Cake Boss, Hell's Kitchen, and Celebrity Apprentice.
A new show is written and produced with original music and dialogue every three to five years. A new show is in the making and expected to be released in the fall of 2016. Catch the last season for the current show this weekend.
Get your tickets for this weekend using the code LDWEB15 on their website, or via phone, and have a fun Labor Day weekend.
