Proclaimed “the grandest circus spectacle east of Vegas” by New York Magazine, Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy is an exotic encounter inspired by nature’s unpredictable creations that are brought to life by an international cast of soaring aerialists, spine-bending contortionists, acrobats, jugglers and musicians. The journey comes to life in a fantastical jungle setting filled with flowers, magical trees and a variety of special effects and more than 150 spectacular, award-winning costumes. From the Butterfly Ballet and Flipping Monkeys to Hopping Frogs and Stretching Lizards, this world-class explosion of imagination, athleticism and Broadway theatrics will exhilarate and entertain audiences of all ages.
Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy debuted in 2008 at New York’s Broadway Theatre, the first and only of its kind to perform on Broadway. In 2011, the tour received a 2011 Brass Ring award for live entertainment excellence at Busch Gardens and recently completed an Armed Forces World Tour, entertaining 100,000 troops and their families in 10 countries.
USA Today raves, “Dazzling! A fantastical tale of an enchanted jungle,” and the L.A. Times calls it “Jaw dropping! A whiz-bang family friendly spectacle.” Don’t miss this unique, high-energy experience the whole family will enjoy!
