Ended up here by surprise.

Amazing experience. The smell of fresh popcorn. Cosy setting. Stunning liveband throughout the show. Such talented artists. An incredable performance. Entertaining for all ages.

We are a family of 6, with kids ranging from 10 to 23, we didn’t know if going to the circus is going to be everyone’s cup of tea or not and it certainly was

Some of the acts were unbelievable, the acrobatic skills are awe inspiring

There’s certainly some acts which are aimed for younger kids which are still entertaining

Everyone certainly had a good time so I would recommend it

I last went to this circus around 14 years ago - when it had lions in the show.
This was much much different.
We all really liked it.
The skill, the showmanship.
Very very good.
My favourites were the amazingly beautiful and equally talented Evgenia Zavadskaya (yes - I have a crush).
The Duo Antresol - wow. What a way to open a show. Literally breath-taking.
The circus is inexpensive but - all of the performers really are world class in what they do.
They deserve to sell out every show - and I am sure that they do most of the time.
The people of Budapest and its visitors are lucky to have this permanent circus!
Special mention now to Ethio Brothers.
How did you find out that you had a talent for this?! They got the biggest cheers.
They deserved it.
This made me especially happy as Hungary was, after some incidents at the EURO football, seen as maybe being a little less accepting of other races.
It was great to see the whole crowd, most of which were children, show them and all of the other acts their love and appreciation.
My grandparents were Hungarian and I am proud of my heritage and will always promote and praise Hungary - this is a special special circus and you should make time to go when in Budapest.

We saw the show "Rain". The sound system was painfully loud. I feel sorry for the children in the audience. They will get permanent hearing damage for sure, after being exposed to this for 2 hours. It is too bad that this place is trying to replace traditional circus entertainment with deafening noise and a boring laser show. I guess noise and lights are much cheaper to produce.

This was a very boring circus. I have attended this circus many times over the years.
This was the worst ever in Budapest It is not a real circus because it has NO CLOWNS!!!
All of the performances were very similar except for the final one which featured horses. This was the best of
all. Get at least one clown to have some levity at the circus. Remember “Van Masik!”

There are different shows present in this place. Before you go you should check their website to see the time and dates of performance. I had seen a wonderful show last week (Spirit-of-Steppe). It was a solid show, with great laser lighting and life music and singer which made a exciting atmosphere. It is good place to spend time with family. We had a great time.

We attended the Ice Kingdom show, a performance by the Ukrainian State Circus in late January 2023. It was awesome, we enjoyed it very much.

We've seen a lovely show (Which one of the 9 - or something like this :) ) for a very decent price. It was a new experience for us compared to the circuses that keep on moving from town to town, it had a nice story, very good acrobats and we also enjoyed the seating and the building made especially for this. All in all, a great experience that we recommend!
