If you’re Heading to the Circus with a Young Family here are Few Tips to Keep in Mind
1. Book Your Tickets Ahead of Time | Purchase Circus Tickets Online
While the shows may not commence until May 17th, it’s important to remember that the Royal Canadian Circus is one of the most popular and sought-after experiences in the world. As a result, tickets are known to sell quickly, particularly with only a limited number of shows listed during the tour.
This means that you’ll need to purchase your tickets ahead of time, and preferably as soon as you have identified the dates on which you want to attend. This will help to minimise disappointment and the risk of missing out, which is crucial if you’ve already told your children that you’re planning a trip to the circus this summer! It’s easy to purchase our tickets online at this link: https://www.royalcanadiancircus.ca/buy-tickets
Also, check out our Facebook page. We constantly post promotion and early bird special pricing.
Booking tickets quickly also helps you to secure the best seats on the optimal dates, ensuring that your family have the best view of the action as it unfolds.
2. Give your Children a Taste of What to Expect
Let’s follow this with a basic assertion; children are unpredictable and sometimes struggle to engage with new experiences. This reaction can be exacerbated in the case of extreme experiences, so it’s crucial that you prepare your kids in advance and given them an idea of what to expect.
You can do this relatively easily, simply by showing your kids picture books that detail the unique acts that have made the circus famous throughout history.
In the digital age, you can also visit the Royal Canadian Circus website to access video clips of the star performers in action, all while paying careful attention to your child’s reaction to each one. This way, you can identify any potential issues or fears ahead of time and deal with these directly.
This is a must if it’s your kid’s first trip to the circus, but we’d recommend that you do this whenever you visit a new troupe.
3. Pack Snacks and Keep Your Kids Hydrated
Kids are renowned for having a short attention span, no matter what they are doing or the action that’s taking place in front of them. So, even when they’re basking in the glow of the Royal Canadian Circus and its astonishing acts, there’s a chance that they may become tired, distracted and ultimately distressed.
As a parent, your task is to prepare for this issue and pack provisions that can help overcome it. So how do you achieve this?
You can’t cover every base, of course, but you can certainly make sure that your kids are well-fed and hydrated for the duration of the show. While we have wonderful concession stands and refreshments available at all our circus performances you can help your children by packing their favourite snacks just in case. Keeping them well fed and hydrated will also help them to retain their concentration for longer; while also increasing their need to visit the restroom.
Expect to have the best of traditional circus snacks and foods available at our concession stands but also come prepared for the unexpected with a few nutritional refreshments of your own.
