Brought to you by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® returns this summer to the most notable boardwalk on the eastern seaboard with a mystical all-new edition, The Coney Island IlluscinationSM.

This year the thrill-seeking, action-packed Ringling Bros.® spectacular salutes the magical wonders for which Coney Island is known. Ringling Bros. weaves intrigue, marvel and fun (of course) as Children of All Ages follow Illuscinator David DaVinci through outlandish, heart-racing transformations including suspending himself perilously by his feet, attempting to escape from the confines of a straitjacket, all while directly above a pack of exotic lions.

DaVinci introduces more unfathomable acts than ever before. See two female aerialists defy the sheer force of gravity, twirling and soaring 35 feet above the audience, suspended solely by the strands of their hair. Also, performing for the first time in the United States are the Kung Fu Kings. These masters of Far East disciplines will present the inexplicable which includes challenging centrifugal force by diving blindfolded through a spinning ring of fire intertwined with more than 40 swords! Even our majestic Asian elephants return with a spellbinding presentation that will leave audiences entranced. See this and much more at The Coney Island Illuscination.
