Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Zing Zang Zoom 2010

The mystery of magic and the mastery of
skill will leave audiences spellbound as Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey®
Presents ZING, ZANG, ZOOM®, a mind-blowing circus spectacular where family
fun is no illusion. Magical Zingmaster Alex and his assistant, the alluring
Levitytia, lead audiences through a kaleidoscope of color and imagery that
reveal extraordinary worlds of fantasy and phenomena that celebrate the
uplifting spirit of the circus and also ward off a cynical Mr. Gravity and
his team of Heavies who try to bring everyone down.

ZING ZANG ZOOM provides hours of thrilling entertainment that is fun for the
whole family for about the price of a movie ticket. Ringling Bros. offers
the greatest value in family entertainment making the circus Ticketmaster¹s
number one most purchased family event.

Tickets for ZING ZANG ZOOM go on sale July 9 and are available through
www.Ringling.com, Ticketmaster or the Rupp Arena box office (859) 233-3535.

Circus goers will watch in amazement as the high flying circus is literally
turned upside down. They will witness apprentice illusionists from the
audience mysteriously levitate their parents, and they won¹t believe it, as
a four-ton elephant disappears before their very own eyes. Spectators¹ jaws
will drop wide open when they behold Mr. Gravity transform from a human into
ferocious tiger.

Illusions and magic won¹t be the only acts to excite and astound audience
members. This all-new circus has some of the most incredible thrill acts
ever seen. Families will be breathless as they watch fearless human
cannonballs blasting through the air in a dramatic display of daring
bravery. Moms, Dads, and kids will teeter on the edge of their seats as they
watch the Qi Qi Har Chinese Swinging Log Trapeze act making its debut in
North America. A treacherous never before seen quadruple Russian fire-swing
sends acrobats crisscrossing two stories in the air and the renowned
dangerous dueling wheels of steel defy gravity and logic.

But perhaps the most magical of all will be the amazing and incomparable
array of exotic animals, which includes a herd of grand Asian elephants,
magnificent Bengal tigers and elegant Arabian and Friesian horses that join
forces with human performers to create an experience that will surprise and
delight Children of All Ages.
