- Don't leave Coney Island without visiting the Coney Island Circus Sideshow. This ten-in-one circus sideshow is the last one of its kind in the country. Established in 1985 with the goal of keeping the American sideshow alive, you'll be thrilled (or repulsed) by fire eaters, sword swallowers, snake charmers, and contortionists. Witness unnatural and bizarre acts performed by freaks like hammering nails into their noses, eating bed of nail sandwiches and walking on glass! The 45-minute show runs continuously. There's a Freak bar and a small gift shop in the lobby. The Coney Island Circus Sideshow is also home to the world famous Sideshow School.
