You don't want to miss Fully Charged at Colonial Life Arena, the all-new surge of circus entertainment from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey®, where megawatts of thrills explode off of the arena floor with breathtaking dare-devilry, amazing stunts and never-before-seen performances that energize children of all ages! Get Fully Charged Up by the power of performers! Experience unbridled horse power, unparalleled superhuman power, and pachyderm power that generates mega-tons of fun! Feel the electro-magnetism of Tabayara, the world's most thrilling animal trainer. Audiences will feel the earth shake when the strongman lifts large, cumbersome telephone poles, which weigh up to half a ton, and twirl them above their heads while acrobats balance atop. The Human Fuse, Brian Miser, sets the arena sky ablaze as he rockets through the air from his self-made human crossbow. You can only experience this current of excitement at Ringling Bros. Fully Charged! Get your tickets for high-voltage fun today -- and don't miss the All Access Pre-Show, which starts one-hour prior to showtime and is available to all ticket-holders. See animals up close, visit with performers, get autographs, try on costumes, and enjoy the circus fun.
