    I don't remember Circus World, but a couple years ago I read something online about it and that it had become Boardwalk & Baseball. Now, I know this closed down in 1990, but I could swear as a child of the '90's, the sign for the park remained standing for quite some time. I have very vague memories of hearing about this place and seeing a particular sign as a kid, maybe I'm crazy... who knows!

    We went there too in either 81 or 83. I don't remember much other than having a cartoon drawing of myself done and I think we rode an elephant.

    I love wikipedia...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circus_World

    They always have stuff on there about defunct theme parks. I think it was cool that Circus World was Ringling's Winter Home.

    I remember Circus World!!

    Only cause I have pics of me when I was little with my face painted, and I remember that my Mom refused to go on the ferris wheel with me and Dad, lol.

    After it was Circus World, it became Baseball and Boardwalk, which was still kinda cool, but not as cool as CW, or WDW, lol.

    I miss it though.

    It's a huge parking lot now if I remember correctly, how sad.

    My family went there once in 1977 and I have photos of all my boys with clown faces to prove it. Here is a photo of the Circus World tent.

    I remember Circus World. I didn't go there, just gazed at from the back of my parent's station wagon while on I-4.

    My wife was there as a kid, got her faced painted as clown. There's a picture somewhere.
