Hi, my daughter's band class is going to the Medieval Times Festival and I was wondering if anybody has gone and if the it is safe for people with PA. I called and talked to the information person and she said it was okay for PA people to eat there, they use no peanut products at all. I just want to double check to see if anybody has gone with their PA child. Thank you for your replys.

I went to the Medieval Times in Orlando, FL. I was told that the one in IL is the same as the one in FL. I never saw any peanut products while I was there. The sitting "arena" was like a huge bench with a table. You literally had to "slide" in. The thing that I would worry about the most is cross contimaination such as peanut products having touched the table but I think using a baby wipe to clean the table would help with that situation. I used to wipe down the shopping cart with a baby wipe after my son had a reaction from just sitting in the cart. You did not mention how old your daughter was but I assumed that she was older because it was a band trip. If she is older, she should be able to manage. Sorry, this was so long.

Thanks for the reply. My daughter is 14 and she is going on this trip with her band class. I will not be with her, this makes me nervous. Her class is traveling on a motorcoach to see the Festival, it is a 3 hour trip from where we live.

Dd (PA and TNA) has been there (Schaumburg location)several times with no trouble. The food is pretty plain (roasted chicken, baked potato, white bread roll). She usally brings in a candy bar as a dessert, but that is because she does not care for their "apple tart".

Hope your child has fun.

I emailed them recently and was told they used no peanut products. Please post how she likes it.

Hi - is there a web site or contact information for this? we're in the Chicago area and are always interested in finding nut-free actvities. Thanks.

The Schaumburg IL location is right at 90 and Roselle Road.

Well, my daughter went to the medieval festival and hated it. She said it was pretty lame and the food was gross. She's 14 so she's at that age where everything is pretty lame (unless its shopping). I thought it sounded fun, I think I'll check it out this summer with my husband. Thank you for all your help with this.

We've been. (will have to take my "wood sprite" costume to the cleaners........)

No advice, just happenstance.

I saw the show in Orlando. The show was "Okay" but I would not pay to see it twice. The food was "okay" too. Nothing extraordinary.

reraising. When this thread was originally posted, I thought it was referring to the "King Richards Fair" festival. (brain blurb, sorta similiar) We've been there. Any more input on "Medieval Times". (what spelling, the search was incredibly difficult--- I have a thread running in "Restaurants".)

ps.......can one still go as a wood sprite?

MommaBear, we just went here, [url="http://sterlingfestival.com/renfest/"]http://sterlingfestival.com/renfest/[/url] last weekend. Kids loved it! Came home sporting new wooden swords and mom got a tattoo on her back (henna). Lots of fun.

[img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] I know! those wooden swords...........

Another place we really had an *excellent* time at was I and M canal days in Illinois. We were able to hand made leather native indian pouches and *real* powder horns. Lots of French Canadian items. hmmmmmmmmmm next time, I'll look for [i]poutine[/i] [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

To be a crafter there (I and M) or have a display or demonstration, it had to be period specific, and done with no more than the goods and techniques of that time period. Waaaaaaaay cool.

MommaBear, it used to be called "King Richard's" many years ago. Now it's Bristol. We go there every other year or so. We just pack food for my son. If they complain, I'll explain the situation. Usually does the trick. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Okay--sorry to interrupt and get us back on track :-), but does anyone know whether the restaurant called Medieval Times is safe? It's expensive, and it was too violent when DS was younger and we actually lived within 5 minutes of one in Dallas, but at some point I'd like to take him.

He enjoyed the Renaissance festival near Dallas, Scarborough Faire, but they are different things entirely.

Has anyone had any experience at the Medieval Times restaurant--allergy wise?
