The Circus Circus actually has live circus acts as well as an arcade that features live carnival attractions. Those too young for the casino can be entertained by the circus. The circus acts also seem to entertain many who are old enough for the gambling activities. These circus acts are performed periodically throughout the day. The trapeze acts are pretty good and worth watching. The carnival attractions include things like ring toss, coin toss, basketball throwing, electronic horseracing, and many other games similar to what can be found at a county fair where the players can win prizes or tickets. The tickets can be redeemed for prizes such as stuffed animals and toys.
There is no charge to watch the acts.
Circus Circus is one of many thematic Reno casinos. Here, you can watch a free circus act complete with trapeze.
Casinos in Reno are smaller than Las Vegas so you can go casino hopping easier by walking from one street to the next.
Good luck if you are gambling.
