Circus World Museum leaders are working to resume trolley service to downtown Baraboo attractions.
Years ago, Circus World’s trolley was a frequent sight on the downtown streets in summertime, transporting visitors to Ringling-related sites, such as the circus impresarios’ onetime homes and the Al. Ringling Theatre.
Now, as downtown attractions are developing a single discounted ticket for admission to every participating site, there’s talk of bringing back the trolley.
At Thurdsay’s meeting of the Circus World Museum Foundation board, Executive Director Scott O’Donnell said five attractions will honor the “combo ticket,” which at $34 for an adult offers a 35 percent discount:
Circus World Museum
International Clown Hall of Fame
Al. Ringling Theatre
Al. Ringling Mansion
Baraboo Historic Walking Tour
The attractions’ goal is to capitalize on tourists’ visits to Baraboo, encouraging them to visit multiple locations, stay longer and spend more money.
