October 1st, 1987 marks the debut of the Daredevil Circus Spectacular, which performed in Communicore plaza. The 80's was a difficult time for the parks. And guests just really did not understand EPCOT Center. The lack of traditional Disney characters as well as it was so completely different than anything that came before it. Among the people that did not understand EPCOT Center was Michael Eisner. While looking for ways to improve EPCOT Centers earnings, he decided that Futureworld needed a circus. A "future" themed circus. It was billed as "The Greatest Show In Space". Instead of being in a circus tent, it was right in the center of Futureworld which was transformed into an 8 ring "Spacearena". The show only lasted till March 19th, 1988.
