My wife and I took our daughter to the circus several times when she was younger, but none of us really enjoyed it—it was loud with the daredevil motorcycle roaring around in the sphere of death, the other acts were either trying too hard or not enough. Finally our daughter said 'thanks anyway' and chose not to go back.

But an act like the poster below would have enticed us I'm sure. That looks like fun, complete with a 'gorgeous pyrotechnic display'.

The circus is not what it was.
