“It’s one of the best thrilling experiences,” said Paranormal Cirque’s marketing and media representative Charles Herwig.

“Do you love thrilling, wicked, sexy, or even dangerous things? Paranormal Cirque will expose you to a unique creation of combined theater, circus and cabaret, with a new European style flare,” said Paranormal Cirque in a press release.

The circus is animal-free and everything is done with human talent. Doors open one hour prior to the show.

Paranormal Cirque provided The Orion with a coupon including a promo code to get five dollars  off each ticket.

Marketing and public relations specialist Leah Hryniewicki said, “Included with the ticket is a haunted walk through before the show.”

“There are scare actors so it’s like a haunted house before the show starts and everything for food, drinks and souvenirs inside is cash only,” said Hryniewicki.

There will be an ATM at the event but a fee will be charged to get cash back.

“Paranormal shows are adult shows. We recommend no one under the age of 13 due to language and jokes, but per parent decision they can sign a waiver to be let into the show,” said Hryniewicki.
