This week I was given the opportunity to attend the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus “Built to Amaze”. We really had an awesome time. I brought 3 of the 4 kids and they were in awe throughout the entire show!
We arrived approximately one hour before the show started. Walking to our seats we stopped and grabbed a box of popcorn and a drink. We can’t watch the greatest show on earth without porcorn!! The pre-show was already going on on the floor of the arena. There was a huge bounce house, clowns, and a few acrobats performing. Attendees can head on down and get up close and meet some of the performers during this time.
Once the show begins, you get see circus performers from all over the world give a performance of a life time. This was my kids FIRST circus and they were in awe throughout the entire show. The show flows so nicely from one act to the next. The performers are amazing, the animals are beautiful, and of course the clowns are so much fun! My favorite part was the performers in the huge metal rings – how awesome!!! My kids loved the tigers and the human cannon ball the best. I do have to agree with the cannon ball!
If you get the chance to go see the circus, I HIGHLY recommend you do – it really was “Built to Amaze”! Tickets are still on sale and prices start at $15! Tickets are available at ringling.com or ticketmaster.com or you can call the Amway Center box office at (407) 440-7900)!
