Great work Guys! I always ranked this one as one of my worst tables with all its small flaws. Now it feels like it always should have. Thanks!

Is this baby going into my favorites, abso-friggin-lutely, it looks, plays, feels and even smells great. The VR is top notch and feels like the real thing, glad I don't need a warehouse to hold all of these awesome tables. I was lucky enough to be on the inside with this one and see what goes on, the passion exhibited from so many people on these projects, updates, mods, total transformations, whatever you want to call them is a sight to behold, so many people each doing what they do to get this shipped out to the masses. Good stuff and thanks to all.

Perfect update -- respectful of the (extremely great) original but just that subtle extra level of refinement that the table deserved and needed. A+! 🍻

This table inspired me to leave my first review because it absolute perfection in every possible way. I would even go so far as to say this is one of the very best tables to showcase how amazing Visual Pinball can be.

Thank you VPinWorkshop! 🙌

I've always loved Cirqus Voltaire since I've first played it on Pinball FX3. The version that this one is based on still looked great but the physics wasn't great and it had a few issues. VPW has now sorted the issues out and brought the gameplay to life with the updated physics. A great table that I look forward to playing many times more.

I always thought that it was impossible to improve Knorrs fantastic table but wow this is as real as it gets. Everything is top notch 🤩

Have been playing this table a lot since I downloaded it and everything works flawless 👍💯


(For those that have problem with the game adding players could have the same problem as I had. If you had "push in" on plunger set up as "buy in" button thats your problem. Just comment out line 1460)


Thank you VPW!

Again, you guys have a improved machine by a miles. Don't know if this is any better than all your previous release, there is now so many great releases to pick from. But, it is for sure, up there among the best ones. Looks like a million bucks, another release that I will proudly show off. Good thing is, friends are coming over this weekend. Thank you once again VPW with friends ! ❤️

Thank you guys so much! I'm getting whiplash from looking at all of the recent releases from VPW 😂. Somehow even after all this time my wife doesn't get the excitement, but I assure you it's a big day in my house when you guys release another table. Far more industrious than I could hope for - it's really amazing how much your team contributes to this community. Thank you again!!


P.S. This table is excellent. Runs really well on my vpin and, most importantly, feels wonderful to play.

I have always loved CV, but previous versions annoyed my anal-retentive brain because of the redundant DMD on the playfield (just like the real machine).

But with the superb Window POV in VPX 10.8 I can finally dial in the full marquee for the playfield DMD, and I love it. These VPW gems in anaglyph 3D are a joy.

P.S. Love the little bell sounds at the lower left of the playfield in SSF. It's those tender details that put VPW tables on top.

Fantastic update with one of the most amazing light shows in virtual pinball. Thank you for all the hard work. I also learned today you guys have merch and ordered myself a sticker to finally cover up that at games logo between the speakers on my ALP.

Love this table Thanks VPW. I am having problems with the ball getting stuck by the ring leader. Freezes by the green ball still and always wants to select more than one player after ball drain?

This is INSANE!  I never paid much attention to this table before, but I started this version up for the first time and before I knew it an hour had gone by!  My new demo table for sure!  Thanks for the last week VPW!  It's been an embarrassment of riches!

VPW released my favorite table on my birthday.  Occasionally there's something right about the world.

The lighting on this is amazing, and the physics is as realistic as I've seen.

Perfect makeover and VR rendering 👍

It plays just as it should.

I hope to see the same treatment for FUNHOUSE, TZ and TAF one day 🤞
