Dinner Theater and Theme Evenings in Orlando

Grab your flights to Orlando to find a host of theme evening and dinner show options of this nature to pick from, where you can enjoy these and other adventuresome themes. Here are just five of the many choices available for your consideration.

Escapology Orlando

Escapology offers six different historical rooms to pick from; once you choose a room, you have an hour to uncover the clues you need to escape. The rooms are based on real or true-to-life historical events such as the Cuban Missile Crisis and an Arizona shootout. Anywhere from two to six people can work together in a single room and the rooms are graded by difficulty level so beginners can choose simple, easy to solve puzzles while those who want a challenge can go for a difficult level room.

MindQuest Live

MindQuest Live has five escape rooms to pick from, including a brand new Haunting: Secret of the Mansion room. You can see trailers for a couple of these rooms online and each room is clearly graded by difficulty level to make it easy to pick a room that is most suitable for you. All the rooms have a modern theme, you have an hour to escape from any given room and teams from two to seven people are assigned to a room at a time.

Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament

History buffs are sure to enjoy this four-course dinner and show, which includes a two-hour jousting tournament with six knights, pure Spanish horses, a falcon and real weapons. The castle where the event is held is opened 75 minutes before the show so you can take pictures and check out the Medieval Life Village & Museum (for the history buffs) before settling down. Three package options at varying price points are provided, as are vegetarian meals, allergy accommodations, and alcoholic beverages.
