This isn't directly related to coasters, but its related to Orlando, which is the theme park capital. I'll be going there soon and wanted to know which dinner theater is your favorite. I went to the Medievil Times in Buena Park (L.A.) and had fun there, but I may go to Arabian Nights or Wild Bill's. If anyone has been to one of these dinner theaters, how was it (the food and the show)?

Never been to Wild Bill's. Went to Arabian Nights a while ago... I remember it being more acrobatics and "dinner show" and less action...
I believe there is a pirate dinner show down there that is fairly new and is supposed to be pretty good.

I went to Medievil Times while I was there. It's good, but the one in Illinios is slightly better, due to the acting quality. Food is really good.

Not really sure if this is what you're looking for but if you go to MGM Studios you might want to check out the Sci Fi Dine In Theater. We've been there twice and it is really nice.

I am not really sure of what kind of dinner theater you are looking for. I really liked Disney's "Woop De Doo Music Revue" at Camp Wilderness. They have really good food, and an excellent musical. Complete in an old western style theater. I highly recommend it.

Dolly Parton will be building one of her Dixie Landings dinner theater's in Orlando in the coming year. We attended the one in Pigeon Forge and really enjoyed it. I wasn't expecting much from the food but it was really good!

That's Dixie Stampede not Dixie Landing, and yes those are quite fun. Serve you WAY TOO MUCH food though.

Sorry , but you said it wasn't related to this coasters or themeparks, so why did you post it? Couldn't you have looked up what you needed on a website?

Intamin Fan - I said it wasn't "directly" related to a coaster or theme park. It is somewhat related to theme parks since Orlando is the theme park mecca and a lot of people go to these dinner places after going to a theme park. I posted it because I wanted opinions on how people feel about the dinner theaters and which they recommend. I know how to find out a bunch of info on these dinner theaters (orlandoinfo.com, floridakiss.com, flausa.com, etc. . .) but those are not necessarily opinions of people that have been there. These sites have descriptions on each place, and they make them all sound good. We all know that because a place has a good write up that its not necessarily good, so I wanted to get some other non-biased points of views.

Yeah Zimm, but that's like me saying I want advice on powerboats because I'm visiting Lake Erie, and hey that's somewhat related to Cedar Point. Sorry, but I don't buy it and I'll let it go.
If you have to figure out how to ride a coaster to be comfortable, then that's not a coaster worth riding.

I'll buy it. It's another form of themed entertainment and no real difference from asking what hotel is good to stay at for a particular park.
Can't give you a real comparison since I've only been to one. We went to Medievil Times in Orlando and enjoyed the show greatly, though the food wasn't much to brag about. I sure wouldn't want to write the insurance on their performers. They've got to get hurt pretty often falling off horses etc. every night.

*** Thanks Jim. I agree about the danger those performers go through each night. At the L.A. Medievil Times (which I assume is very similar to the Orlando one), they were swinging those big heavy swords at each other. A lot of the time the swords hit each other, and it would make a spark and a rather loud noise, showing that it was a real sword, not an aluminum foil sword. If one of them forgets the next move (a block for example), it seems that someone can get seriously hurt. I guess that adds to the excitement and realism of the show.
