ER made a beeline for one, "She's SO pretty," she whispered to me in excitement. The dancer was really nice too, posing for a picture and letting ER touch her multicolored outfit. The antics of the clowns, juggling and acrobats, aerialists, and more are not to be missed! I think I said it last year when we saw Over the Top, but the preshow really makes this one awesome family outing!
With the preshow and circus you get about three hours of LIVE entertainment with highly trained performers. When you consider how much it takes to put on a show the magnitude of Zing Zang Zoom you are really getting great entertainment value for your ticket.
There were giant cannonballs, through which people really were shot through! Up until I saw them blast through the air, I really thought that was going to be one of the many amazing illusions. The expression of shock on ER's face after that was priceless! I think the amazing feats of balance and high flying acts were my favorite overall. I'm always most amazed by the human performances of agility.
The others walked, jump roped, and biked across high off the ground, with no net below! I included a picture the second photo collage to give you a better idea of just how high up they were. A short clip of their performance is above this paragraph.
We all thought it's so clever how they move the show along. The circus floor is a constant hive of activity. While one act is going on and your attention is on that, there are several people moving around sets and getting things ready for the next. I'm really impressed by the level of organization and choreography it takes to pull of a show like Zing Zang Zoom!
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey puts on a great show and is a really exciting experience. I think it's a great show for all ages, and something an whole family can really enjoy. There is a big variety of acts that will keep everyone's eyes riveted on the stage the whole time! The acts are all over the circus floor and you really can't have a bad seat!
