Game Ideas for your Circus Party!

Here are some great ideas for running your own circus skill party! Don't forget, you can always book us if you want a hassle free and amazing circus experience, but here's a few ideas to get you started if you want to brave it on your own!

We have put together a list of five fun circus games that are sure to delight guests of all ages.

  1. Juggling Relay Race: Divide your guests into teams and give each team a set of juggling balls. Set up a relay race where each team member must juggle the balls for a set distance before passing them off to the next team member. The team that finishes the race first wins!

  2. Hula Hoop Challenge: Have guests compete to see who can keep a hula hoop spinning around their waist the longest. You can make it more challenging by having them try to hula hoop while standing on one foot or while spinning in circles.

  3. Tightrope Walk: Set up a low balance beam or tightrope (a slackline or a rope tied between two trees works well) and challenge guests to see how far they can walk without falling off. For added difficulty, blindfold the participants or have them carry a ball while walking.

  4. Human Pyramid: Have guests work together to create a human pyramid. Start with a base of three people, with two people standing side by side and a third person standing on their shoulders. Then, add additional layers until the pyramid becomes unstable. Don't make them too high and make sure you use lots of cushions and mats for safe landings!

  5. Circus Obstacle Course: Set up an obstacle course with a variety of circus-themed challenges, such as walking on stilts, crawling through a tunnel, and balancing on a beam. Guests can compete against each other for the fastest time or complete the course as a team.

At Circus Brighton, we offer a variety of circus workshops and activities that are perfect for parties and events. Our experienced instructors can teach guests of all skill levels how to juggle, spin plates, and perform!

So why not add some circus fun to your next party or event with these exciting games? They're sure to create lasting memories and plenty of laughs.
