Flip Circus puts audience members close to the action
Held under a red-and-white big top, Flip Circus is a spectacle to behold.

Enter a World of Imagination

Walk inside the iconic red-and-white big top and enter a world of imagination. Before taking your seat, stop by the backdrop and capture a photo of the whole family—this is a night you won’t want to forget. Next, stop by the concessions for a classic popcorn or cotton candy or enjoy a modern twist on a snow cone, which is served in a glowing cup. There are also vendors walking around selling light-up toys to delight any child.

Entering the main area of the tent, eyes grow wide with childlike wonder as the colorful lights and big red curtain come into view; lift your head to admire the expansive ceiling of the big top. Despite its impressive height, the show has an intimate feeling as each entertainer connects with the audience.
