REVIEW: Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus BUILT TO AMAZE!

Disclosure: I was provided tickets to the Saturday, January 11th performance to provide my honest review of the show. All opinions expressed below are 100% my own. 

"LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, BOYS AND GIRLS, CHILDREN OF ALL AGES..." I have heard this many times in my life as I have attended many circus performances. I have seen many things but I can honestly say I was very impressed with the BUILT TO AMAZE show! The whole show is based on a building theme so you see lots of construction-themed outfits, cars and performances.

Prior to the actual performance, there is a pre-show where you can meet the cast, enjoy in mini-performances, a dance party and a bounce house.

Then everyone takes their seats and it's showtime! The show begins with a dance number, confetti blasts and a parade of elephants. 

Then come the performances. There are so many acrobats, trapeze artists, dancers, clowns. It's a little hard to keep track of everything going on, but you will not be bored! These glowing air acrobats were amazing!

They gave out clown noses and Adrian loved wearing it throughout the show!

My one big issue with circuses has always been the animal performances. I know there are many controversies with how they are trained for these shows and have always been worried about this. I am happy to say that the animal performances have been diminished to about two. I was pleased about this. The BUILT  TO AMAZE show has so many performances going on  that they don't really need the animals. 

From the acrobats to the clowns, magic shows to cheerleaders, the performances were spectacular! There is even a fun surprise right before intermission! Don't want to spoil it for you. You will have to check it out for yourself!!

Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey BUILT TO AMAZE is at the American Airlines Arena in Miami from 1/9-1/20/14. Get 4 tickets for $54. Use Code: FAMILY!
