  • Coney Island Circus Sideshow
    1208 Surf Ave., 718-372-5159
    The Coney Island Circus Sideshow, also known as Sideshows by the Seashore, transports visitors to the old-time Coney Island of odd delights and freakish talents. Cast members like Scott "The Twisted Shockmeister" Baker (master escape artist and live-cricket eater), Betty Bloomerz (sword swallower extraordinaire) and Insectavora (a fire-eating femme fatale) have a jaw-dropping effect on viewers as they perform amazing—and sometimes stomach-churning—feats by the ocean. (The season began in April with intermittent shows and moves to a daily schedule on June 13.)
