They dont let you bring food in so stop at McDonalds down the street and stick some candy in your picket. Youll still be out of $25 dollars inside. There is no escaping it!!

Perfect for children, a bit bland for adults. It's mostly clowning and animals, with less of the truly talented performers that I've come to expect from a first class circus. The 2nd act is far better than the first.

They did a great show - tons of fun stuff, zillions of spangles - LOVEd the animals.
Was a bit disappointed not to see equestrians actually RIDING horses, or to see a trapeze act - but that is carping. Loved it.

The acrobats and clowns were amazing and funny. The volume was over the top LOUD. Bring ear plugs for the family if you go. The snacks were over priced and not very good even with my low expectations for circus food. I had not been to Ringling...continued

More Information


Don’t miss Fully Charged, the all-new surge of circus entertainment from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey®, where megawatts of thrills explode off the arena floor with breathtaking dare-devilry, superhuman stunts and never-before-seen performances that energize children of all ages!

The most electrifying edition ever of Ringling Bros.® celebrates performance power that boosts circus-goer excitement. The amazing acts, which can only be seen at The Greatest Show On Earth®, include Tabayara, a dynamic animal trainer whose rare ability to communicate with animals allows him to ride rearing stallions at a fully charged gallop and orchestrate majestic four-ton Asian Elephants in a symphony of dance. When he stands inside a cage, eye-to-eye with 12 ferocious tigers, Tabayara sees family where others see danger.

Audiences will feel the earth shake when the Ukrainian strongman duo of Dmitry Nadolinkskiy and Ruslan Gilmulin, who are as wide as they are tall, enter the arena. The brawny twosome give the word manpower a whole new meaning as they lift large cumbersome telephone poles, which weigh up to half a ton, and twirl them above their heads while acrobats balance atop.

The Fearless Fernandez Brothers dial up the thrills as they perform daring feats of athleticism on the Twin Turbines of Steel, including extreme jumps and twists inside the moving wheels! Audiences will crackle with excitement as they watch Guillermo perform a 360 degree flying forward somersault, three stories in air, a feat so difficult it has only been attempted by one other person in the 141-year history of Ringling Bros. The Human Fuse, Brian Miser, sets the arena sky ablaze as he rockets through the air from his self-made human crossbow. Don’t blink as he flashes across the sky in less than a second, and travels 80 feet at 65 miles per hour. 

Ever wonder how many clowns it takes to change a light bulb? The hilarious hoopla continues to flow as the clowns from the world-famous Ringling Bros.® clown-alley, charge-up the audiences’ funny bones with hysterical silly antics and clownish comedy.
