Casey Jr. has come to town and brought the circus with him. But that’s not all he brought. He’s also brought some very cool entertainment. Wet and Wild.
In the story of Dumbo (which Storybook Circus is modeled after), the train plays a big role. That’s true here to. Casey is right in the middle of everything and boy does he stir up some action.
Dad’s Video of Casey Jr.
If you remember the movie Dumbo, when the circus comes to town it comes on a train. That train is named Casey Junior.
I don’t know if you can actually call this an attraction. It’s more of a play area with water squirting everywhere. This is the old Donald’s Boat area and like the boat, there is lots of water to thrill the kiddos.
Casey pulls the train right into the middle of the circus. There are elephants and giraffes on the train and they very playfully spew water all around. Casey even gets into the act every once in a while.

Dad’s Bottom Line
If your kids want to get wet, real wet on a hot Florida day (aren’t they all), then this is the place for them. Adults be ware, those animals can spit a long ways.
