Last weekend I headed over to Canada’s Wonderland with my 5 year old daughter, Keira, for a little one-on-one time and to check out the Ultimate Thrills Circus!
After spending most of the day in Planet Snoopy and Kidzville, Keira and I grabbed some cotton candy and headed over to the International Showplace to take in the show at 3pm.
We watched in awe as the show kicked off with a thrilling incline motorcycle high-wire act that literally had Keira and I watching in amazement.
The Acrobats performed a fantastic Swinging Trapeze, followed by a series of fantastic acts including aerial silks, a contortionist who performed archery with her feet, and a quick clothes change act.
The show wrapped up with the cyclone act – a definite must see! Check out my video below for a preview of what you can see when you check out the Ultimate Thrills Circus for yourself!
We actually enjoyed the Ultimate Thrills Circus so much that Keira wanted to see the show again at 5 after spending some time at Splash Works, and it was just as amazing the second time around. My favourite part was the aerial silks, it is such a beautiful act to watch.
We finished off the day by heading back to Planet Snoopy for several rounds of bumper cars – Keira’s favourite ride.
