LOVE the charity work that the Big Apple does, and that the animals they use come from rescue centers (or at least the dogs did). It was nice for my 2 and 4 year olds that there was only 1 event happening at a time so it was not too overhwelming...continued

Great seats. Loved the show. We are seniors but enjoyed watching the children in the audience having such a great time.

Our only concern is that the music is ear damaging loud.

I thought the seats were excellent and my review is no reflection on Goldstar. I have always found that with Goldstar there are no surprises. That being said, however, I thought the show lacked animal acts and did not hold the attention of the...continued

It was certainly not Circue De Solei type of production. The acrobats and gymnasts were competent but not spectacular. The setup was mostly utilitarian.

But it was still plenty fun for the kids, and for Goldstar's price it was all worth it.

Circus was amazing, unfortunately I would have thought that Goldstar would have disclosed that 2 of my 6 seats were obstructed view.

It was ok. I haven't been to a circus in a long while and decided to take my niece (almost 5) and nephew (two) to watch the show. My nephew fell asleep but I figured it was b/c he was too young to appreciate it but my niece was bored...continued

This is the second year I have taken my granddaughter and we both enjoyed each time. She is only 5 and is always mesmerized with everything new. I enjoyed it however I agree that more animals would have been nice. I applaud the Big Apple Circus...continued

This is a great event for mature children, no animals except one dog act. There are mostly acrobat related acts throughout. There is a tightrope walker and trapeez act.
I went with my 15 year old daughter and although it was not what she expected...continued

I have been to this show 3 times over the past 5 or 6 years. This year's show was definitely a disappointment. It appeared there had been cutback's in the show. In past years, the audience participation was a side show. This year these acts...continued

Initially I was a little skeptical about this event, as was my boyfriend, but after the first act I was sold! It's a great time for all, get ready to laugh and be entertained. Great music and crowd participation. Go with a great attitude and be...continued

This was my first Golstar event and I was pleasantly surprised to find out we were in the first (front) row. I purchased four tickets at half price and thought the seats were going to be okay but not great.

As far as the event goes, it was...continued

This was the best one yet!!!!! We have gone to many of the Big Apple Circus shows over the years. My grandson (9) sat enthralled w/ the entire show. It was lively, entertaining, and so colorful. Would recommend it to everyone, young and old. ...continued

Yes it was fun but our seats were right next to the band and are situated such that the performers backs are generally facing you. Our kids would have been more engage if they could have seen the clowns faces. I would highly recommend bringing...continued
