Celebrating its 25th year, Piccadilly Circus delights family audiences around the country with its touring spectacle of suspenseful thrills and slapstick laughs. The 90-minute extravaganza rolls out such death-defying acts as motorcyclists somersaulting through the air on their bikes, contortionists impossibly bending their limbs, and middle-aged men cutting back on their sodium intake. A menagerie of exotic animals also moseys across the arena floor, with an elephant balancing its leathery bulk on one stout foot and a rare white tiger prowling before the crowd. As cirque artists, soaring aerialists, and zany clowns unpack their bags of tricks, spectators may feel pangs of regret about youthful decisions to run away from the circus and enroll in actuarial school.
Though Piccadilly Circus occasionally offers specials online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
