Le Grand Cirque Adrenaline in Myrtle Beach, SC
They call this show Adrenaline for good reason… it will get your heart pumping! If you can see only one show during your stay in Myrtle Beach, make it this one. Outrageous fun for the entire family, this show will have you holding your breath, laughing out loud, and leave you feeling joyful and inspired! Billed as featuring some of the most extreme acts in the world, you have to see it to believe it. It truly is amazing the things these people can do. To give you some idea of what you will see, I’ll give you a condensed play-by-play. (I don’t want to give it all away, after all!)
One of the first performances, and a personal favorite of mine, was the hula hoop girl. She seemed to barely move her body and the hoops just glided all around her to the music wherever she wanted them. Wow! At one point, she had so many, it looked like a Slinky! Beautiful and cool.
A few of the cast members are kids, and they are fantastic with yo-yo toys and acrobatics. (You can buy the yo-yo toys like they use in the show in the gift shop, too.) There are several Cirque du Soleil style acrobatic acts with long ribbons and trapeze artists that are elegant and seemingly weightless. Speaking of acrobatics, the two men below have an inspiring amount of muscle strength and control. They go through a whole series of gravity-defying poses that you won’t find in any yoga studio.
One of the more thrilling performances is the Wheel of Destiny. Imagine two giant hamster wheels connected like a Ferris wheel. Then, two men run inside the wheel, on top of the wheel, blindfolded!, make it go super fast, almost fly off!, and come out okay. It’s totally heart-pounding.
The absolute most thrilling act for me, is hands-down the Globe of Death. Good name. Three motorcyclists, yes three – at the same time!, race around in all directions – even upside down! – inside a too-small metal globe. Then, a girl walks in and stands in there while they do it again! I can’t even imagine the focus and choreography that goes into that! I seriously had my hands covering my gaping mouth as I sat mesmerized through the whole thing. Most everyone else did, too.
Our 7 yr-old absolutely LOVED Dizzy the clown. He was hysterical! A genius with physical comedy, he acted as emcee and comic relief between acts. Before the performance, he messed with some of the people arriving close to show time (hint: BE EARLY!)… and did some audience participation bits that were super funny. He did this sort of thing in between acts as well and even got audience members to perform on stage! The people were very good sports about it, and again, super funny. My son’s favorite part was when Dizzy did the balloon bit where he gets inside a giant balloon and jumps around. I can’t even describe how funny this is, but we are still laughing at the memory of it!
We were generously hosted to see this performance, and I’ve got to admit, I would have gladly paid over and over again to see it. It was one of the best live stage performances I have seen in any city. What a treat to see it in Myrtle Beach!
