I have been to many Circus attractions but this is the real experience. 2 1/2 hours of amazing acts make you loose track of time and space. Book at least 12 days in advance.

The show was perfect, atmosphere and acrobats and animals. Everything! The costumes are like in some fancy theater. The building also look like theater. We have great seats but for that is necessary to buy tickets in advance (3 weeks) online. Amazing show!

Last minute booking for the New Year show. Definitely worth every euro. Panto style show based on Cinderella including the Dame and spectator interaction. Great magic show and simply loved the chimpanzee act

I liked this circus. The performers were extremely talented and daring, and I enjoyed watching them. This circus also incorporates animals, which I had mixed feelings about. The majority of the animals looked cared-for, but the lions seemed really unhappy. The music also was too...More

The venue was full of kids and they all enjoyed the experience. I failed to purchase tickets online because of credit card overseas transition issue. Therefore I sent email to the circus instead. The staff were very friendly and responsive. They reserved two tickets for...More
