Epic Animal-Free Family Fun Circus

We attended as a guest of the venue

Circus Vargus 1

Get ready for some fun under the big blue and yellow circus tent. Circus Vargas has debuted their new show iLUMINOUS, and it is fun and eye catching, and animal-free.

They have successfully mixed death-defying stunts with stories, techno lights, and music to create a one of a kind show that everyone is sure to enjoy.

During the show, guests will see some incredible acts. It’s a smaller circus, so, in my opinion, every seat in the house is a good seat. We had some fantastic seats that were in the front row of seats behind the ringside seats. For some of the higher acts like the Trapeze, I believe it is easier to see them from seats that are not right next to the circus ring.

If you are used to going to the other big named Circus performances, you will find that Circus Vargas is way different. For one, they do not use animals in their acts. It is fully a human circus, and it lasts about two hours with a fifteen-minute intermission.

I noticed some people left at the intermission, and they missed the best part of the Circus. I think they saved the best for the last and I was glad we stayed to see it all.

The circus is not a quiet place, so if you have children who are sensitive to sound you might want to bring ear plugs or some other device to buffer the sounds.

It is also dark during part of the show because certain costumes and areas of the stage are illuminated to give amazing eye-catching visual effects, so keep that in mind if you have kids who are affected by those conditions.

All of the show was exciting, but we really enjoyed the motorcycle riders who did their death-defying stunts inside this big metal orb. It was loud, and the smell was a bit strong from the motorcycles, but nothing that any of us couldn’t handle.

We love how Circus Vargas designed the costumes for this show. They really made the costumes a work of art, and they were fun to look at.

If you are thinking of going to see this Circus Vargas show but have some reservations because you are unsure what age range this is suited for, I can tell you anywhere from infant to adult will enjoy it and have fun.

Circus Vargas is great, and we cannot wait to watch their future shows. If you would like to go to see a Circus Vargas show you can purchase tickets online or buy them right at the box office on the night of the show. They have just left Orange County, and then they head to Santa Barbara. They will be back in the area for a Woodland Hills performance from June 23rd- June 27th.
