REVIEW FOR RINGLING BROTHERS AND BARNUM & BAILEY CIRCUS

Had a great time. The seating was a little tight but it was worth it. Great show. I am sure it will be different without the elephants but really enjoyed it tonight I came to Cincinnati to make sure I got to see the elephants before they were taken out of the show. Would have rated it a 5 if the seating wasn't so tight. The show was great

SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT

The circus was good. Not having animals definitely did make a difference however I appreciate the performance of the acrobats/artist. What they did was very hard and difficult for any normal person to do. Honestly, I was more disappointed in the crowd, very dry, non-engaging, just bland. Please don’t go to the suburbs of Illinois which is Not (CHICAGO) if you want to enjoy a great show.

NOT THE SAME

Not just missing the Animals and the Clowns but the voice of the Ringmaster ???? Couldn’t see the screens and lights blocked many views! Not four our 3.1/2 yr old grandson…. He was asking where’s the clowns and elephants??? Why not include some animatronics ? Just sad and expensive

A LOT SMALLER CIRCUS THAN I FIGURED

I was thinking Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus was the circus of all circuses. I was wrong. Arabia Shrine Circus was much bigger, had more and just seemed overall better, and it's a quarter of the price. I won't go to another Ringling Bros again.

NOT A CIRCUS AT ALL

All we saw was acrobats swinging back and forth, the worst CLOWN show ever, and a fake robot dog. I wish I had my money back. The tickets were not worth the price we paid and the show was a pathetic two ring mess. Our Shriners circus is way better!

THE WORST SHOW ON EARTH

False advertisement. Not a circus at all, more musical than anything. Total disgrace, all it was were acrobatics and dancers with lil talent. Clowns was horrible no tricks or shocking entertainment. The host(main speaker) was lip singing, sounded like it was pre recorded. No motorcycles or animals like lions tigers n elephants but they had a fake robo dog which was TRASH!!Food horrible. NEVER!! Gotta do better. Do yo homework on universal sol circus

DISAPPOINTING

The circus was a complete disappointment. Not one animal (not even a dog) and no clowns. Kids were restless with singing and drums. Will not be going again.
