FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT THAT IS A TRADITION

Nice wholesome fun for the whole family. If you don't like animal acts don't go. And don't eat meat, drink milk, wear leather or cosmetics.

GREAT SHOW!

I thought the RB,B&B Greatest Show was appropriately named. Human performers from many countries performed surprising, amazing, funny, scary, thrilling acts. The stage was usually filled with three or more acts going on at the same time. I found the show to be non stop interesting, exciting and entertaining acts. I loved the new RB,B &B Show!

WONDERFUL

Acrobats were amazing.

ENJOY A GREAT SHOW AND AMERICAN TRADITION

Boycott the spoiled children who are professional protesters and domestic terrorists...spreading proven lies about the circus. The circus is a great event with healthy animals. It is an American tradition.

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.

DISAPPOINTING

I wouldn't go again. It is not circus anymore and the show is nothing special...acrobat shows that you saw hundred times already, cheesy Disney like singing of song....it was boring and not worth the money.

MY 8 YEAR OLD WAS BOARD

I really don't know what to say there was a lot of singing and dancing I felt like I was in a Disney movie. Sing and dance singing dancing oh my God! Where are the clowns! What is all the exciting stuff that a kid wants! Why were they selling a bunch of dragon stuff and there was nothing to do about dragons in the circus? I want my money back I want the day back what a waste of my time what a waste of his time we could have went to the zoo and got a better show off of the seals. Very very disappointing will never go to a Ringling Brothers in Barnum & Bailey circus again!
