All-new Ringling Bros.® experience coming to the RBC Center | Feb 24 – 28

zingzangzoomThe mystery of magic and the mastery of skill will leave audiences spellbound as Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents ZING, ZANG, ZOOM®, a mind-blowing circus spectacular where family fun is no illusion. Magical Zingmaster Alex and his assistant, the alluring Levitytia, lead audiences through a kaleidoscope of color and imagery that reveal extraordinary worlds of fantasy and phenomena that celebrate the uplifting spirit of the circus and also ward off a cynical Mr. Gravity and his team of Heavies who try to bring everyone down.

ZING ZANG ZOOM provides hours of thrilling entertainment that is fun for the whole family for about the price of a movie ticket.  Ringling Bros. offers the greatest value in family entertainment making the circus Ticketmaster’s number one most purchased family event.

Tickets for ZING ZANG ZOOM go on sale January 8 and are available through www.Ringling.com, Ticketmaster (1-800-745-3000) or the RBC Center box office.

Circus goers will watch in amazement as the high flying circus is literally turned upside down. They will witness apprentice illusionists from the audience mysteriously levitate their parents, and they won’t believe it, as a four-ton elephant disappears before their very own eyes. Spectators’ jaws will drop wide open when they behold Mr. Gravity transform from a human into ferocious tiger.

zingzangzoom2Illusions and magic won’t be the only acts to excite and astound audience members. This all-new circus has some of the most incredible thrill acts ever seen. Families will be breathless as they watch fearless human cannonballs blasting through the air in a dramatic display of daring bravery. Moms, Dads, and kids will teeter on the edge of their seats as they watch the Qi Qi Har Chinese Swinging Log Trapeze act making its debut in North America. A treacherous never before seen quadruple Russian fire-swing sends acrobats crisscrossing two stories in the air and the renowned dangerous dueling wheels of steel defy gravity and logic.

But perhaps the most magical of all will be the amazing and incomparable array of exotic animals, which includes a herd of grand Asian elephants, magnificent Bengal tigers and elegant Arabian and Friesian horses that join forces with human performers to create an experience that will surprise and delight Children of All Ages.
