The Best Circus Ever
A Sneak Peak Inside the Universoul Circus
“When I say Big Top, you say Circus” is what you’ll hear as Lucky and his crew welcome your family to the Universoul Circus. Talking about an event fit for the entire family, this is the one!
What event can you go to where the adults have more fun than the kids? The Universoul Circus! Now, I’m not going spoil the show for you but I will give you a sneak peak of some of our favorite acts and performances. Let me start by saying, don’t go if you’re not ready to be a part of the show. Lucky and his friends take us through a journey where everyone gets involved. From the beginning there are clowns adorned in urban costumes, who perform popular dances we’ve seen on TV and the Internet. You could see children and parents dancing all across the tent. It was hilarious! There were many times where audience members were brought on to the stage and we even got to hit giant beach balls throughout the stands (Epic Moment).
The kids were very excited about the camel and elephant encounters. Before and after the show, kids could take a picture sitting on top of the camels and during intermission, they could ride on the elephants both for a small fee of $10. We didn’t let them ride this time but did make a deal that next year we’d make it happen. I found it to be very cool for one of the clowns to take a picture with just about every family in our section. Toward the end of the show, they brought them back out giving us an option to purchase.
The show is about 2 1/2 hours but it really doesn’t seem like it. There is never a dull moment during the entire show, the excitement never seems to stop. From magicians to daredevils and everything in between; Universoul Circus truly has something for every member of your family. They have performers from all over the world and you really get the feeling that they are genuinely a family. As an added bonus of going to the National Harbor show, we sat right in front of the Washington Mystics, and according to my husband, former Washington Wizard Etan Thomas.
Food, Snacks and Such
I was pleasantly surprised to see that the food, snacks and memorabilia was very affordable. Food averaged between $4-$8 while toys and memorabilia was less than $20, which I thought was pretty reasonable. Not to mention that the bathrooms were inside a clean mobile trailer. A huge shout out to the staff that constantly stayed on top of its cleanliness.
Since we visited the National Harbor Show, parking was not free. However, the parking garage was across the street and only cost us $10. If you’ve parked at the National Harbor before, you know that’s a good deal.
My family cannot wait to visit the Universoul Circus next year, especially since my daughter is holding on to my promise of letting her ride the elephants!
