“Very entertaining!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Saw the many reviews of this circus on Trip Advisor. Decided to buy the tickets online.

Superb performances. Left us glued to the stage throughout.

Amongst the many performances, the 'spider man' performance and the tight rope were the ones who left us all holding our breath.

The circus is accessible by the same metro station as Szechenyi Public Bath and is very easy to find (just opposite the additional entrance of the bath).

Paid more for the first row seats and it was definitely worth it

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Whatever your views on animals in a circus, you can't deny that the tiger "tamer" is brave and skilful. But it does this wonderful circus a dis-service to just mention this act. There were many many more skilful artisans who were appreciated by a reasonably sized audience despite it being 3 pm in the afternoon.

“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

The first half was quite boring with "funny" clown acts and horses running in a circle, but the second half had some spectacular trapeze and acrobatics numbers, that really took our breath away!

I think it's most entertaining for children.

“A step back in time - great circus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Like our own Billy Smart Circus of days gone by. A great traditional circus, complete with lions and tigers, horses and of course an elephant that does tricks. Not exactly "P.C." but worth taking the time to see, exp if you have children with you. We went as 2 adults though. There were acrobats, dancers, clowns, a ringmaster - all top entertainers in the best of circus modes. A must for something different.
