When we saw the original previews forNitro Circushere in Colorado Springs, I thought it looked like something the boy might enjoy.
I didn't know a whole lot about the show, but between stunt bikes, scooters, roller skates, and motocross, it had all the makings of something that would keep his attention.
And, I was right! The boy was enthralled with the whole event and, even better, the girl and I enjoyed ourselves too. We were lucky enough to take their friends with us, and both of the boys also loved it.
Two set ups filled the field--a two piece ramp set up for motocross stunts and an exceedingly tall slide-style ramp for non-motorized wheeled creations. It was crazy to see the tricks performed, including flips and jumps, never mind the wheeled "vehicles" the riders used. Besides the typical bikes and scooters, they raised wheeled coolers, a kids' Barbie-style car, even a recliner.
Nitro Circus Live is a 2 hour, fully choreographed, theatrical spectacular that will leave you on the edge of your seat, featuring 30 of the World's best athletes in Freestyle Motocross, BMX and skate, plus insane contraptions launched from the 40-foot high Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp!
The North American tour is still happening and we highly recommend it as a fun family night out if Nitro Circus is coming to a city near you. We were very happy with our night out and would definitely see the show again if the tour returns here to Colorado Springs.
