Circus act is not only about trapezium and juggling or clowns, we learn about many other acts. More importantly, we have a better appreciation of the science and hard work behind successful acts.

Balancing 3m above should be the most popular act for families 🙂

There are some acts which shout “Do not try at home! “

Like flying out of a cannon! We always thought it is cool to be blasted from a cannon, until we read that performers had perished from incidents.

The angle of the projection, the projectile speed, all this matters to land a circus performer safely into a net.


Flying trapezium and somersaults are not suitable for me, Thank You.


Swallowing a sword gives me the chills! What if we slice or pierce ourselves ouch! In comparison, it is definitely safer for Boon Xin to contort herself into a box.

..or for kids to beat Atom Ant’s strong charisma 🙂 


Unicorns might be a myth but some folks who might be disfigured or handicapped are sometimes paraded as objects.

One of the tallest person of all time.


Can you spot the minuscule fleas! Amazingly, some circus have a troop of fleas trained to perform and entertain!

Tickle our funny bones, mirrors and clowns.


Giant shoes, weird faces and more clown props on display. I always get spooked by the sinister clowns!

Yup, Hollywood likes to portray some clowns who go around killing! I would hate to be spooked by a clown in the middle of the night.


The animals of the circus. 


…and the cosplaying humans. I found a mini ewok too.


Visitors will learn about the Science under Circus Big Top too.


How can music change our moods?  


.. how can our nose  distinguish food and stuffs?


Through Science Centre Big Top, we got to experience the tricks and science behind an act. There is a lot of Hard work!

We now have a better appreciation of the “magic” behind a circus.

Amazing tiles, every piece looks different yet symmetric. They can all mix and match despite their odd shapes. There is a term for this, “Tessellate”. (Hint: aim the primate head under armpit)
