The Odessa Jackalopes have provided live hockey, family-friendly prices, and full-contact High Tea since 1997 at the modern-styled Ector County Coliseum. From the Jackalopes' home base, also known as the “Jack Shack,” spectators get the opportunity to see professional hockey players on their way up from the AA CHL to the AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers or the NHL’s New York Islanders. Mascot Slap Jack is also present to entertain the younger fans and infuriate taxonomic biologists with his rabbity antler-antics.

At Circus Gatti, exotic animals, hilarious showmen, and thrilling daredevils delight families in an outrageous three-ring spectacle. During the two-hour show, elephants Tika and Patti stomp to Bollywood choreography, and the Liberty Ponies knock their synchronized hooves under the deft direction of Miss Genevieve, who conducts with a baton made of sugar cubes. The Great Oscar soars through the heavens with nothing but an oversize rope and bones infused with helium, with The Queen Bee delivering further aerial thrills while fluttering beside her hive in an atmospheric ballet. Pipin and Poppy elicit laughs with their comedy routine, and Miss Elizabeth induces awe with a contortion and balancing act in which she fires an arrow with her legs and feet while hanging upside down. After the show, those who opted for the meet and greet will brush elbows with the circus stars, snapping photos and asking questions regarding their skill, bravery, and how to construct a Q-tip big enough to clean an elephant's ear.
