"Circus World Showcase, its preview center, had its groundbreaking on April 26, 1973 with building contractor Mercury Construction Company of Haines City. The showcase was due to open in December 1973 when Mattel placed Ringling Bros. And Barnum & Bailey Circus Combined Shows Inc, including the park, up for sale. Venture Out in America, Inc, a Gulf Oil recreational subsidiary, agreed to buy the combined shows in January 1974, and the opening was further pushed back to 1975. While the Circus Showcase for Circus World opened on February 21, 1974, Venture Out placed the purchase deal back into negotiations, and the opening of the whole complex was moved to an early 1976. Early added rides included the Zoomerang (June 1977) and the Hurricane (1978). Attendance topped out in 1979 at 1.3 million then began a slide for seven years. In 1980, the theme park made a profit."
