The world's first circuses drew crowds who were anxious to see saber-toothed-tiger tamers, clowns juggling dinosaur eggs, and a sideshow starring an unbearded man. Enjoy a modern take on prehistoric entertainment with today's Groupon: for $25, you get general admission for two adults and up to six kids to the Piccadilly Circus at the Travis County Expo Center (up to a $64.75 value including fees).

For 25 years, Piccadilly Circus's troupe of traveling performers and nimble menagerie has delighted audiences with an array of comedy and daring physical feats under the big top. During the 90-minute show, families cheer on soaring aerialists and gape at a graceful squad of contortionists as they curl into jointless arcs and G clefs. Rocky, a 250-pound boxing kangaroo, jabs and roundhouses before an elephant balances on one foot. Motorcyclists defy gravity in the Globe of Doom, somersaulting and spinning while gelling their cowlicks. Between acts, a troupe of clowns speeds around the ring, sowing giggles with zany antics before removing noses and revealing the sensitive poets underneath.
Although Piccadilly Circus sometimes offers discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
