Presented by Heartland Bank, Cornbelt Energy, Mid American McDonalds & Norberg Monuments.

Galaxy Girl Arial Thrill ShowGalaxy Girl is the newest extreme action superhero, and for obvious reasons! Galaxy Girl begins her act by climbing eighty feet high in the air before performing an incredible aerial gymnastic routine from a trapeze dangling with no safety nets or devices.

Then she begins her perilous climb to the 127-foot sway pole towering above the ground. As she arrives on the Aerial Space Platform atop the sway pole, the pole sways and bends drastically to near breaking, but Galaxy Girl retains her balance to perform a handstand on the very peak of the pole. To return to the earth's surface, Galaxy Girl gracefully slides down a cable in her "Slide for Life".

Galaxy Girl performs multiple shows daily and you’ll be talking about it for weeks to come.
