I ran this for a group of friends, most of whom had only played a little D&D. It was the first published adventure I had ever run as a DM and it was a joy. My group loved the items handed out and the creepy feel of the carnival.
I will say that I added some more detail to the circus, creating named circus people and giving them different personalities and characteristics. There is not a lot of detail provided for the circus itself outside of the tables and the main characters, so expect to do a little work as a DM.
Would have been good for a creepy Halloween one-shot!
