Kaleida invites families to scurry away into their dream circus world…only to ﬁnd that this particular fantasy combines ‘physical play’ and ‘creative play’ in a way that could only come from the lovely, adventurous, bizarre, agile minds of Cirque du Soleil.
Cirque du Soleil has always served as a lightning rod of inspiration among its audiences and participants. Whether you’re 7 or 77, you leave a Cirque show eager to pick up a paintbrush or pencil and start creating. You exit wondering if you could really soar on a wafting silk strand like one of the big top’s incredible performers.
Kaleida is where all of those ponderings come alive, across approximately two and a half hours worth of free exploration: physical challenges, creative crafts, eclectic dining, and surprising spaces. As you return again and again to pick up new risky tricks, reserve unforgettable space for a private Cirque-tinged fête, or see what’s popped up in the stunning game zones, your family will know there’s no place better to play and dream.
A target 2 ½-hour experience begins in a surreal chamber evocative of a performance venue’s green room, with a ﬂuid blend of archival props and invented scenery. Already, this family fun center’s off-kilter logic and magical realism are fully on display. At that electric moment, all boundaries vanish and you’re free to explore!
From this point on, families choose their own adventures across a vast playground’s worth of physical challenges, creative crafts, eclectic dining, and surprising spaces, all of which are intentionally hard to pin down. This is an evolving, ﬂuid, whimsically moody space which blurs the lines between genuine athletic artistry and – well – complete and total nonsense. You are as likely to meet a virtual juggler as to hear that their clubs are sourced from a magical tree we keep in the theater wings.
