The Greatest Show On Earth

The show is about to begin... but wait! Something terrible has happened. All the stars have been struck down with the dreaded lurgie. There's only one thing to do you'll have to stand in for them.

Enter the ring as Tightrope Ted. Balanced on a unicycle, brave the high wire and its perils. Then, a quick change in the dressing room, and emerge as Sidney the Strong Man. Are you a wimp, or can you manage to pull a 100 ton truck? Succeed at this and assume the guise of Marvo the Mindreader unscramble an anagram and type in the correct answer.) Enter next as Co-Co, the Knife-Thrower, Try to score over ten points but make sure you don't stab him in the bread basket) Next, risk life and limb by taking the place of Charlie the Human Cannonball. Make sure he lands in the net or there'll be a nasty splat on the sawdust. Yuk!

Providing you last this long, all that remains is to dazzle the audience with your final act! Wonder what that can be?
