Fantastic performance. My 8 year old wasn't keen to go and was won over by the acts. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Well I have visited the circus toaday and must say I was extremely disappointed.
We visited 2 or 3 years ago and were absolutely amazed by the quality of the acts, had me on the edge of my seat throughout.
Today was a totally different story, basically 3 acts which lasted about 20minutes in total and the rest of the time padded out by the ring master and a clown, total waste of money, don’t bother.

We booked tickets as part of our Merlin pass but didn’t have any real desire to see but that view was quickly dispelled as the show is very good and the variety of acts enough to keep all engaged. Two hours of good family entertainment

This is a must see in Blackpool. The clown was very funny and the acts were thrilling and entertaining. A two-hour long show including a 15-minute intermission in the middle when you can buy food, toys for the kids or take a comfort break.

An embarrassment for Blackpool!

Please fix this @MerlinEntertainments

Lack of quality entertainment from start to the interval (where we all left disappointed).

We were all so excited to experience what was meant to be the pinnacle of circus shows, but were left utterly underwhelmed by this lacklustre presentation of a show. We couldn’t hear a word of the dialogue from the circle and were less than enthralled by the minimal number of speciality acts on offer. Nothing beyond juggling and dancing was offered in the first half which left us feeling let down by the promise of quality entertainment in a stunning setting. How can a resident circus production not be able to both find and present quality entertainment in such an iconic room? How can Merlin Entertainment Group be endorsing such a show and allow thousands of tourists to be left watching utter rubbish? Our young kids also lost focus and even began falling asleep (during the 1pm show!)

PEASE DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY

*Please please please read this and other negative reviews, work on the criticism and bring back the true glory days of circus here in Blackpool!!
