The events that were offered before the actual show started were outstanding. Interactive as well as informational. Great time for photo ops as well. I'm a huge "shutterbug" so, I was in heaven! Well organized event, that ran in the time expected....continued

Boom A Ring_® combines astonishing thrills with the outlandish fun of the circus to create a show that pulls you right into the heart of the action! Thrilllusionist  David DaVinci wows audiences with eye-popping illusions and mind-blowing transformations.

DaVinci performs with a feathered flock of eight rare and colorful birds including African Greys, Cockatoos and Macaws that can only be seen at Boom A Ring! Guided by DaVinci, these winged performers take flights of fantasy around the arena.

Audience members’ eyes are transfixed high above the center of the ring as they witness acts whose feet never come close to touching the ground. Viktoriya and Widny, the Hairdaring Duo, execute an unbelievable extreme hair hang an amazing 35 feet in the air. The Sky-High Sensation, Francleib Rodrigues, is a courageous daredevil who walks, upside down, across the ring, without a safety harness, three stories above the audience.

Boom A Ring showcases captivating performances by international daredevils from across the globe. The Kung Fu Kings combine mixed martial arts with mind-boggling strength to accomplish feats that include twisting solid metal poles around their bodies and diving through hoops of razor-sharp sabers, blindfolded! The Barons of Balance, with the world’s fastest feet, display the finesse and amazing agility of dancers as they effortlessly leap from one thumb-thin low-wire to another. The famous Urias Family rides customized 100 cc motorcycles at speeds up to 60 mph in a steel globe that is only 16 ft. wide. And flying high and flipping furiously are The Salsations who take vaulting, aerial gymnastics and sizzling dance moves to scorching new extremes.

At Boom A Ring circus-goers get up close and personal with the majestic animals of Ringling Bros.® Hans Klose and his 13 high-energy dogs display their animal athleticism with a fun and whimsical twist. The talented pups high jump, hurdle, dive from 16 feet up in the air, back flip and even walk on their hind legs. Most impressive of all, watch our treasured Asian elephants groove just a few feet away from your seat.

With abundant thrills comes loads of fun, when the Ringling Bros. clowns bring comical and musical hilarity to Children Of All Ages. The Clowning Caveagna Family creates instrumental mayhem with interactive silliness and antics. Who knew clowns could be so musical and funny all at once!
