Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Built To Amaze! is an extraordinarily engineered circus experience where Children Of All Ages® find out what it takes to build The Greatest Show On Earth®. Bursting with brightly colored construction equipment and oversized power tools, this all-new 143rd Edition of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey is a fantastic design with more than 110 of the world’s best performers representing 17 countries, along with 95 exotic and domestic animals, creating never-before-seen heart pounding performances.
Highlights include the Ringling Bros. debuts of nine-time international award-winning comedic animal presenting duo Alex and Irina Emelin of Russia, and the Tower Tumblers, a troupe of mind-boggling aerial athletes from the Ukraine who launch themselves from trampolines to scale, repel and pass through a three-story high translucent tower. Returning to The Greatest Show On Earth for the first time in more than two decades is the next generation of the legendary King Charles Troupe, twelve basketball players from New York City who present a continuous, whirling display of one-wheeled excitement while perilously perched on unicycles.
