Zarkana Theater & Seating
While I found the storyline hard to follow, I thought the costumes and characters were the most flamboyant, funny, and varied of any other Cirque show.
The Zarkana Wheel of Death was an exhilarating ride and keeps you on the edge of your seat! It looks as though the two men who perform this act are identical twin brothers with the same build and size body to perfectly offset each other. I sure didn’t do that well in physics class back in high school, but I can tell you these two performers were defying the laws of nature in this amazing display of courage!
The Zarkana Web has become the iconic backdrop of the show, and is where the breathtaking flying trapeze act takes place while Tarantula, the spider lady looks on.
The Sand Painter was unlike any act I’ve ever seen in Vegas, or anywhere else. Time after time, the artist recreated the story of Zarkana in sand images that should be hung in a gallery, but instead are wiped away as quickly as she created them. It was gorgeous and heart-breaking at the same time.
The High Wire act in Zarkana is not your everyday circus act. The snake lady in the background sets the stage for a dangerous act, surrounded by firebreathers, while two men perform truly scary high wire acts, all while trying to avoid a swinging ball of fire!
Q. Is Zarkana a show for kids?
A. The age limits for the show are 5 and up. While some of the humor will certainly be lost on young children, there is nothing inappropriate for children in the show and is family friendly.
Q. Can you take photos in Zarkana?
A. Yes! As long as you don’t use flash during the performance, photo taking is fine, unlike most shows on the Strip.
Q. How long is Zarkana?
A. 90 minutes with no intermisson.
Q. Can we bring or buy food and drinks into Zarkana?
A. Yes and yes! You can buy popcorn and drinks at the Showroom Bar. And you can bring any other drinks as long as they are in a plastic container into the theater.
