Le Grand Cirque | Myrtle Beach

Last night we had a family night out and went to see the “must see show for 2019,” Le Grand Cirque here in Myrtle Beach! All of us were quite impressed and it kept both Mackenzie and Brynna’s attention the entire time, which says a lot in itself if anyone knows them!

What is Le Grand Cirque?

The two-hour performance is a non-stop thrill ride that will keep the crowd on the edge of its seat. The show allows the action to speak for itself from the skill and energy of the performers. The venue which is a large tent similar to a circus tent allows an intimate view of the action. The show is full of action featuring amazing physical feats of skill and strength.

There’s no ring-leader only a mime that entertains the crowd with audience participation. He had us laughing so much! Brynna’s friends from school and our neighbors were at the same show and one of the twins actually got to come on stage and let me tell you he stole the show at the beginning! He had us cracking up! Also, a word to the wise: arrive on time or you will likely be the subject of the mime’s jokes.

Adrenaline Pumping

This show will keep you on the edge of your seat and it will get your heart pumping! I kept turning my head because I was nervous but kept going back for more! The guys on the trampoline were amazing with some awesome acrobatics. The performer with the “hula hoops” had us all watching intently, she was very fun and interactive with the crowd! You can tell she loves what she does!

Balance, flexibility and dangerous stunts kept us all wanting more!

The “Wheel of Death” is one of the most extreme stunts I have ever seen performed on any stage. There are two performers on the wheel and they are both up there walking in a “wheel” at one end of a pendulum that is swinging. It is scary enough when both of them are walking inside the two wheels as the pendulum speeds up, but it approaches insanity when one of them gets on top of the revolving wheel and performs. They do even more extreme stunts while on the wheel but I don’t want to spoil everything for you!


The show kept us laughing and entertained the entire time. I know there are tons of options for shows here in Myrtle Beach but if you can see only one during your stay I’d highly recommend this one.  This show will have you holding your breath and laughing out loud! It truly is amazing the things these people can do.

If you are in the Myrtle Beach area and looking for something fun to do definitely check out Le Grand Cirque. Tickets range from $17.95-$44.95.
