Very disappointed in the Blackpool tower circus. Went with my young family expecting good things especially as it’s an iconic show - however it was utterly appalling. We were sitting in the circle and the sound was so bad we couldn’t hear what the clowns were saying so all the jokes fell flat.
The acts were few and far between - and when they did come on they were distinctly average
No tight rope walkers , no Ariel flyers , nothing mesmerising- just really dull clowns who were on far too long with terrible jokes, bad sound, terrible production and nothing impressive at all
Really confused as to how this is Blackpool’s famous circus. My children wanted to leave they were so bored
I really don’t recommend this but hope they improve their show so that they can return to the success of their glory days

We had ringside seats which were well worth the extra cost. Took us back to great childhood memories. Simply loved it.

This is our 3rd visit to the circus bringing different friends or family with a Merlin friends and family ticket purchased for them, and this is the first time I've felt I wasted money on their ticket and our vip upgrade seats.

The show no longer has acrobats, no trapeze, no guy walking upside down with no restraint, no tight rope... In general no acts! It seems they have picked up some very poor "filling" acts and no real substance to the show anymore, the only acts they do have repeat the same tricks from different angles, here's looking at the guy flipping onto the shoulders of the other guy in three different directions......

Mooky still as funny as ever Mr boo the same as always, but even the two of them seemed to have to try and fill the show.

Please bring back actual acts for the show :(
