Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Presents LEGENDS Review!

Our family had an amazing time at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Presents LEGENDS last week at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. We were blown away by the whole show and even my husband, Lonnie, was impressed with the performers!


Unfortunately, we arrived late so we missed out on the All Access Pre-show which goes on an hour before show time. In the pre-show, families can become part of the circus on the arena floor and have the opportunity to try on costumes, learn acrobatic skills, juggle with clowns from the World Famous Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Clown Alley! Families can also watch up close to one of the Ringling Bros. majestic Asian elephant’s paint a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, which is given to one lucky audience member. The All Acess Pre-Show is a MUST see and the kids will absolutely love it so make sure you get their early!

The performances were absolutely amazing! I think our whole family was in awe with some of the stunts performed. My husband specifically enjoyed The Torres Family and their Globe of Steel where  EIGHT motorcycles orbited around at 65 miles per hour in 16-foot steel globe.

I was super impressed with the Medeiros Troupe which is a pretty awesome Hair Hang Act seen in my Instagram photo below. The “Hair Hang” Act features eight female performers from around the world including the USA, Brazil and Ukraine, performing daring acrobatics while hanging from their hair! How crazy is that?! They also perform a high-wire motorcycle act.

As for E, she really enjoyed the clowns and the elephants! She said the clowns were, “silly” and is now saying she wants to be a clown for Halloween even though its months away!

We really enjoyed LEGENDS and believe that your family is not going to want to miss it! For more info on the show, please visit the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus website!

  1. This so awesome! I grew up watching this circus and that definitely brings back memories. We actually have the Ringling Museum here in town.

  2. That’s funny that she’s already picking out her Halloween costume because she liked it so much. Glad you had a good time!

  3. I love the circus and Ringling Brothers is one of the best. My little one is grown up now, so I think I will have to just take myself next time they are in town!

  4. I went to see the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus when I was little, and it was amazing. Looks like they are even more awesome now. I definitely need to take my daughter.

  5. I haven’t been to the circus since I was a kid! I know my son would love it, but I haven’t heard of one coming to our area. The all-access pre show DOES sound amazing.
