Balthazar Beauregard's circus is travelling through RuneScape, but unfortunately they are a little short on performers, can you help them out? To start, you can talk to a Circus barker located in every big city. The Circus barker will tell you the current location of the Ticket vendor, which changes weekly as the circus moves around. When clicking on the vendor, you will be given a golden ticket which will teleport you to the main ring where the Ringmaster awaits your arrival.Balthazar Beauregard's Big Top Bonanza is a weekly mini game for anyone, as there are no specific requirements, though a high Agility, Magic, and Ranged level are helpful.
You can start by talking to the Ringmaster, who will explain his problems to you. The circus needs performers who are skilled in Agility, Ranged, and Magic to perform stunts to please the crowd. None of the three acts require any items of your own, the circus provides any equipment you need.
Starting the Agility-based performance can be done by going through the Agility changing room on the ground level, after which you will be taken to the top to perform tricks on the tightrope. The Agility assistant offers you some interesting information, after which you can start.
The goal is to perform 10 tricks without repeating the same trick twice, while pleasing the audience by listening to their requests and using emotes in between two tricks to maximize the chance of getting great rewards. The stunts you are able to perform are listed below:

After completing the 10 stunts you will be judged and rewarded for your efforts, in both items and experience.
Starting the Ranged-based performance can be done by taking Ranged equipment from the Ranged equipment box, located in the south-west corner of the tent, which you need to perform tricks. The Ranged assistant can provide you with some helpful tips if you need any.There are two different kinds of targets, being a set of popinjay targets and a human assistant strapped to a wheel which is spun by a penguin. You have to fire five shots at each target, using the same weapon for all five of the shots. You can choose a distance from which you can shoot at your target by clicking on the symbols on the floor, as shown on the picture below.
Similar to the Agility performance, throwing in an emote after every shot as well creating some variation in the Shooting spots you choose will help you maximise your score.
Starting the Magic-based performance can be done by taking magic spell tablets from the Magic equipment box, located in the north-east corner of the tent, which you need to perform tricks. The Magic assistant can provide you with some helpful tips if you need any.
There are four different spells you can cast, at three different locations. The table below lists the available spells.
|Teleportation tablet||This tablet is used to teleport an item from its stool onto the floor.|
|Levitation tablet||This tablet is used to levitate an item from its stool.|
|Alchemy tablet||This tablet is used to cast a high alchemy spell on an item.|
|Elemental tablet||This tablet is used to cast an elemental spell on an item.|
You can cast alchemy and teleportation spells in the north-east corner, elemental spells in the north-west corner and levitation spells in the south-east corner. To be able to cast spells, you need to stand on the star symbols on the floor, as shown on the picture below where a levitation spell has just been cast.
After you have completed all three performances, you can leave the circus by tearing or destroying the golden ticket. When doing so, you will be taken back to the location of the ticket vendor where you can view the last 50 performances in your world.
The firemaking performance is located in the south-west corner of the tent, between the ranged and thieving events. To participate you have to have completed The Firemaker's Curse. This performance allows you to take part in two events, a fire breathing performance and a fire poi performance.
The fire poi performance lists seven emotes that you can perform based on your level.
The fire breathing event has a chest you can search through to find potion mixes for you to breathe fire.
|Fire Poi Performance||Fire Breathing Performance|
|Emote||Level Required||Emote||Level Required|
|Twig's Try||74||Salt Solution||74|
|The Lazy Lina||78||Berry Solution||78|
|Isis Spiral||82||Copper Solution||82|
|The Flint Fling||87||Blurite Solution||87|
|Spinning Sera||91||Elemental Solution||91|
|The Big 'E'||95||Rubium Solution||95|
The thieving event is located in the south part of the tent. It is accessible after completing Some Like it Cold. The Thieving event involves none of that at all, and is in fact just like a magic show. When doing the event a list of emotes will display which you can do varying upon your level. There are five total emotes and you can perform ten. So if you fail one, then you can just try it again to get the XP from it
|Flowers from Sleeves||70|
|Rabbit from Hat||80|

|Part of Audience Costume||1 - 500|
|Part of Acrobat Costume||501 - 1000|
|Part of Clown Costume||1001 - 1200|
