Go. You will be entertained and amused. It's a professional, fun, ever-evolving & very entertaining side-show. You don't see this stuff everyday. If you don't like it, you probably don't have very many friends because of (you). Buy a t-shirt. Have a soda or a...More

This was very entertaining! Our family of five (kids aged 14, 11, 8) were on the edge of our seats. It was $10 per person. They did ask for additional money to see more things during the show, but we didn't feel pressured, and not...More

To start off, the MC takes this show to a whole new level. He is very witty and talented and hot(literally, he eats fire). The acts make you appreciate the times of the Circus and the magic which was behind the talent as it slowly...More
