Cirqus Voltaire is a 1997 pinball game, designed by John Popadiuk and released by Midway Games (under the Bally label).
The theme involves the player performing many different marvels in order to join the circus. Some of the features include a neon light running along the right-hand ramp, a pop bumper that rises up from the middle of the playfield at certain times, and a mini-playfield at the top of the center ramp with a magnet to catch the ball for locking.
The most notable feature is the Ringmaster, a head that rises from the playfield at certain times and makes jokes against the player.
