I went to Medieval Times with a larger group. We were unsure of the whole process - I guess the trick is to be early and get in line so you can be close to the arena. However, it equaled out for us because we didn't get in line right away and ended up being in the top row. If you can't be in the front row, the top would be the best in my opinion because it is easier to see over the heads of others because you are on a platform at the top. In addition, it is also easier to get up to use the restroom. The food is okay, not great cuisine, but not too bad. It really is about the atmosphere - eating with your hands, drinking out of jars, and getting into the mood to cheer your knight to victory. I suggest going with a group - it was a fun night out. However, for the couple to spend over $100 plus drinks, I would not do it again. It is worth it to do it at least once for the experience.
