Review #2186

As a kid growing up in Venice Florida I often wondered what it would be like to swing on the flying trapeze. Venice was the winter headquarters for the Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey Circus, and the famous trapeze family “The Flying Gaonas” actually lived on my street. Unfortunately for me, the trapeze in the Gaonas backyard wasn’t something their insurance company wanted neighborhood kids swinging on. So my curiosity went unfulfilled. That is until a few weekends ago. My wife, who also grew up in a circus town ( Peru Indiana ), signed us up for Trapeze Experience. My Trapeze Experience was amazing. Peter Gold was able to take our group from the ground to the air in just a few minutes. In less than two hours we were all swinging, flipping and flying through the air to be caught by a catcher before swinging back and flipping into the net below. All of us grinning from ear to ear. It was an experience I would highly recommend to anyone, young or old. I’m going to upload a video of my wife Lisa to with the keywords “Trapeze Experience” that you can check out for yourself. I’d like to thank Peter Gold and his team for a great memory and I encourage everyone to check out their website at
