I have seen this show several times and have never failed to be entertained. It is a fun show and totally entertaining. The elements of the show change keeping it interesting exciting. Well worth the money and coupons are often available

It was a really fun show. The tickets were pricey. However, we had 4th row seats which qualified us for ponchos,but were not needed. They were doing three shows a day and we caught the last show.

Teenagers and 6 year olds alike, we had a blast. 4th row, we wore the ponchos but no need, i think only the front row was affected. Good combo of music, humor, excitement. Kudos!

I originally saw the show 17 years ago and decided to take my teenagers there so they could experience it. I’m sorry I did. It was 90 minutes of loud noises and pounding on drums and bass. Not enjoyable at all. I walked out with...More

Great visual and musical effects come together in this performance. Excellent audience participation opportunities. We sat in the third row on the right side. View was partially obstructed by some stage props due to the angle. I would not sit in row C on the...More
