Piccadilly Circus's BLAST! show blows away audiences with a spectacle set under a capacious, 80-feet-tall big top. The 90-minute extravaganza features such death-defying acts as acrobats launching themselves out of catapults, showgirls balancing atop racing camels, and middle-aged men cutting back on their sodium intake. Ballerinas and bike-riding acrobats wrangle laughs from onlookers with off-balance antics while rotating wheels of death spin daredevils over the ring. Shows take place in a newly constructed big-top tent, featuring climate control and armrest-equipped, theater-style seats. Aggressively punctual guests can while away preshow time at the circus' petting zoo, riding elephants, camels, and ponies while regretting youthful decisions to run away from the circus and enroll in actuarial school.
