What to Expect at Ringling Brothers Circus

You may be familiar with the circus elephants, lion tamers, acrobats and all that, but this circus event kicks it up a notch, that’s why they call it Circus Xtreme. The spectacular has feature acts for the ultimate thrill seekers.

Aerial Stargazers and Skydivers

Instead of trapeze artists and acrobats, you’ll see the talented performers of Ringling Brothers Circus suspended high in the air on metallic orbs that hold up to four performers. The aerialists come from Russia and Ukraine to show off their acro-ballet above the big top floor. One more thing, the orb spins!

Benny Ibarra and the Pendulum of Steel

With art, comes action! It’s the reason why the Ringling Brothers Circus calls the show Xtreme. Benny Ibarra of the circus, performs on the giant Pendulum of Steel. Daredevil Benny uses control and speed while back flipping, somersaulting and jumping rope on the moving pendulum. It’s non-stop excitement hoping Benny will land every move.

The Freewheelers

Then prepare yourself for a BMX thrill show. Multiple BMX riders will perform death defying flips and tricks on multiple ramps in perfect synchronization. The riders will reach 15 feet in the air while showing off while landing bike spins, Superman seat grabs, bar spins and more. You won’t think half of these tricks are possible!

The Flashkicks

It’s a circus act filled with tumbling and parkour that will leave you astounded. The Flashkicks will perform their skills using their pure strength. Included is a trampoline, BMX half pipe and slackline to add to the show. You’ll think The Flashkicks are superhuman!

Other performers include Clown Alley, The Human Cannonball, Taba Maluenda and his tiger, The Mongolian Mystics and much more. Like all great circuses, there will be plenty of talented animals performing tricks of their own.
