The all-new, 145th Edition of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® headed for Chicago – Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Circus XTREME – features artists who redefine the word extreme in everything they do, magnifying traditional elements of the circus and combining them with never-before-seen spectacles, original fast-paced performances and incredibly hilarious moments. The adrenalin-fueled spectacular offers extreme thrills, exotic animals and extraordinary performers that add up to the ultimate family entertainment experience.
High-wire wizards, powerful strongmen, BMX trick riders, trampoline daredevils, inconceivable contortionists, a high-flying human cannonball, a bungee aerial skydiving display and an international assembly of more than 100 world-renowned artists provide two-and-a-half hours of thrilling entertainment.
With such an exciting lineup, The Greatest Show On Earth® guarantees to dazzle and astound, and a Ringling Bros.® show wouldn’t be complete without a full menagerie of amazing animals. Circus XTREME features beautiful Bengal tigers, two-humped camels ridden by brave Mongolian women, impressive horses and the most popular members of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey family, the magnificent Asian elephants.
I have been bringing my kids to the circus for the past six years now and honestly I look forward to it every year. Something about the circus just reminds me of my childhood. It always features the classic acts such as trapeze, animals, clowns, motorcycle riders and more but each show features a spin on the acts. This year we almost missed the circus but I caught that the show was coming just in time, literally opening day I realized the circus was in time.
Circus XTREME is a show focused on amazing animals and acts. What is so amazing about the circus is something is going on at all times. While they are setting up the next act there is an act going on at the other end in the darkness. The show is non-stop action and it is so amazing how much energy those circus performers have!
For even more fun at the circus you can even arrive 1 hour ahead of time and experience circus fun and acts right from the main floor. There are costumes to try on, animals performing, performers, and more. My daughter especially was amazed at being so close to the performers and acts. Best part of all, its free with your ticket!
No matter your age or your child’s age there is surely something for everyone at the circus. I think everyone should experience the circus at least once and like I said I love going every year. The circus is something that my family looks forward to and we are always amazed at how they change up the show each year.
Since pictures are better than words, here are pictures from our show experience:
