The clowns are back

The Big Top was a popular scare maze at Fright Nights 2015-1017, and this show is somewhat of an homage to the former attraction.

After the 2017 season, the clowns apparently tore down their Big Top, burning what remained of it to the ground. Since then, they've been searching for a new venue, and have arrived inside The Dome to continue with their carnival of mayhem.

The show runs periodically throughout the day - it's easy to spot when it's on, as it takes over most of the Dome with crazed clowns dashing about and interacting with passers-by. There's not much more to it, but it's entertaining for a few minutes, especially watching people's reactions as the circus performers get up close. As a distraction it's fine, although maybe not one of the best quality things on offer at Fright Nights.
