Entertaining, but it is important to lower your expectations. This is NOT Cirque du Soleil. However, the show is fun, heart-pounding, and well-choreographed. All cash. (or fees for credit card and ATM) Cost: 2 tickets. 1 small popcorn, 2 waters, 1 funnel cake. $108

By no means should this show be compared to Cirque Du Soleil and I think it's quite unfair to do so. It isn't nearly as technical or as large, however, Cirque Italia is an underrated entertaining little show. My 11 year old goddaughter and I...More

This is not your typical Circus. No elephant. No dancing horses. NO dogs doing tricks. This is just some wildly talented people who entertain you for a few hours. If you go be sure to get seats in section 1 as that is where the...More
