How was your experience?
Never Again... We had not been to RB in decades. Ugh. Remember the handsome ringmaster? Commanding presence and a lovely radio voice? This ringmaster must be somebody's nephew. He had a high screechy voice and SCREAMED into the microphone for 2 hours. Nails on the chalkboard. The worst part was the animal acts - they all seemed desperately tired and sad. We almost walked out when the lion guy taunted the cats to get crowd reaction. Nice lesson for the kids? The Chinese acrobats, however were great and performed several times. But they could not make up for the rest the cheesy show. The arena is not a good venue for this sort of thing. We sat up high and the trapeze act was completely blocked by lighting and equipment. $35 parking? $8 bottles of water? Seriously? There are lots of shows around. Run away from this one as fast as you can.
