Disclosure: I was invited to Media Night at Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey’s “Built To Amaze” All opinions shared are strictly my own.
Today we finally got a chance to see the show: Ringling Bros Barnum and Bailey’s “Built To Amaze” at the Honda Center.
When we got to the Honda Center, the first thing we saw? The elephants. It was great to be able to walk up and see the elephants walking around and interacting with their trainers and care givers.
On our way down our seats, you couldn’t help to get involved with the crazy fun. Ashley Vargus, the Pre-Show Host and Animal Presenter was greeting guests and inviting them to come down to the show floor and get involved with the clowns, acrobats and more.
We LOVED watching the beautiful horses. This act started off with 4 horses who would prance around the ring, going in and out of smaller rings. One silly comedian of a horse was testing his trainer and not doing exactly what the others were – and had the kids and I cracking up.
Basketball players on unicycles? They were certainly entertaining, playing tricks on each other as well as the referees. Handsome Boy said that they were one of his favorite acts.
Mama’s favorite, as always is the tigers. I’m just fascinated with these beautiful beasts. It amazes me that these dangerous cats perform so beautifully, working well with each other and their trainer. I just love their gracefulness as they move around the ring.
Don’t forget the sweet treats and souvenirs. Ringling Bros Barnum And Bailey have a variety of treats that will make sweet tooth happy. Check out the newest item available: S’mores! The souvenirs are a plenty with stuffed animals, cups, glasses, light up wands and more. Warning parents, it is tough to get your little ones away from these booths!
Naturally, my princess LOVED anything that had to do with dancing. She was mesmerized by the cheerleader (boys vs. girls) routine.
And she, like my Hubster, were glued to the acrobats, high wire acts and more. The incredible display of strength and athleticism surely impressed my sports minded husband.
