Trivia

  • Was one of only a few true wide-body cabinet style pinballs that Gottlieb produced for its System 80 software. It was difficult to operate and repair, and consequently is a rare find.
  • Featured Gottlieb's "roto-target", a unique part that is more common in Gottlieb's System 1 games. Its use in Circus suggests that it is [one of] the first early System 80 games.
