Next we met with Zingmaster Alex Ramon. Although he has 10 years of experience as a magician, Alex is only 24 years old! He is giving "ringmaster" a twist with this show by being the Zingmaster. Alex is onstage for almost the entire show, and some days he does three shows! Ah, youth. Alex told us that the show is all about fun-filled magic merging with traditional circus arts to create a world of infinite possibilities. Plus, there is a storyline that carries through the show. He even involves the audience in various ways including selecting kids to come down to the circus stage to levitate their parents.
The part I'm most interested in is the All Access Pre-show which is free with your ticket. It starts an hour before the show and allows kids to join Clown College, meet the performers up close, try on costumes and even see an elephant that paints! I think this will be something Chip would really dig.

Zing Zang Zoom will be in Los Angeles, Anaheim and Ontario from July 8th to August 2nd. Tickets range in price from $12-$90. Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey have been kind enough to extend a discount code to my readers in Southern California. You can get a 4-pack of tickets for $44 when you enter the promo code: Mom on Ticketmaster.com The code needs to be entered into the MC Promotion box on Ticketmaster. You must purchase a minimum of 4 tickets to get the discounted price, but, after that each additional ticket is still only $11. Not valid on Circus Celebrity/Front Row/VIP seats and facility fees do apply.
