Taikasirkus Ride Experience
Guests sit on a two-seater suspended car and are taken on a slow journey through a family-friendly Taikasirkus (magic circus) experience with many animatronic characters. The ride starts outside the circus where it appears an animal has escaped its cage. Guest then see the ring master welcoming them as the ride enters the circus tent and goes through the whole circus experience. One thing Monty Python fans notice instantly is the Monty Python music that plays throughout the ride.
