Circus World is made for little children and fans of circuses. I personally have a great fear of clowns so circuses are not really for me, but when we were living in Baraboo going to Circus World was a must. The Ringling Bros at one point owned pretty much the entire town and they are still quite present in the town. Walking through downtown Baraboo you can spot the Ringling Theater and several other historic buildings with their name on the front.
Anyways, when our kids were 13 months we ventured to Circus World for the first time. They adored the big top show and the huge collection of wagons. Both of which surprised us. They did however find the merry-go-round terrifying and were of course too little to ride on the animals but there was a lot to explore. It is doable at this age, but I would most recommend it for two year olds and up. We returned the next summer and it was an entirely different experience. Here are our favorite things to do at Circus World...
*Climb in and out of the animal cage wagon.
*Visit the elephant house and pretend to be stomping elephants.
*Play on the circus themed playground.
*Feed the animals.
*Watch the Circus in the Big Top.
*Ride on the Merry Go Round.
Before you go make sure to check the schedule of events online. Certain programs are only at certain times and you'd hate to miss out on a show because you come at the wrong time.
Some coupons are also found on the website at various times throughout the year.
