“Brilliant!!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

So this wasn't a cheap night out, almost £51 for 1 adult, 1 Oap and 1 child front row seats, BUT it was well worth every penny! (Don't be put off by the price, there are cheaper seats). I don't want to give any surprises away about the acts but we spent the night laughing out loud, winced watching the Prof, stared with mouths open in amazement, and hid behind our hands in fear, oh and got a bit wet! All in all a must see family show! If you don't do anything else at GY do this! Ps If you take your booking form back with you, you can go again half price, bargain! Thank you HC we loved the show!

“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Holidayed near Great Yarmouth and made the most of a rainy day by looking for an activity with good reviews. We went with a 1 yr old and a 5yr old, and we had an amazing time. The artists are really talented and it's good clean family fun. Would highly recommend.

“Excitement”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

What a brilliant show. Only saw it once but would visit again. Well worth an evening out. The backstage museum is really fascinating - full of past circus equipment.

“Great Family Entertainment”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

My grandson and I went to see the show at the Hippodrome again this year. Although the two main stars had been there last year their act contained a lot of new stuff. We were really impressed by the two male gymnasts, they were absolutely brilliant. The clown, although not in traditional makeup, was great, making his act look so easy but he was very skilled. All in all we had a great afternoon, so if you get the chance to go, it's well worth it.

“SIMPLY AWESOME”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

I have been privy to see attractions of this ilk in Las Vegas, Cancun and Sun City and let me tell you this production is right up there with the very, very best. It was jaw droppingly stupendous from start to finish. There is something here for everyone and the value for money is off the scale. Oohs and ahhs mixed with moments of holding your breath and of course, side splitting laughter. This show is worth the trip to Great Yarmouth alone and I cannot recommend it highly enough. SIMPLY AWESOME.
