These acrobats are very talented. Do not buy the popcorn or tea...it's stale and gross. The performance was great, very entertaining and well worth the money. We sat on the 5th row center and it was perfect!

The show was fun, but the venue is old and not very clean. They started a little late, which I think is a little unprofessional. Most of the individual performances were good, but they expect the audience to clap a lot. I enjoyed it, but I probably wouldn't go a second time. Look for discount tickets.

If there was a way to provide a rating above a 5, I would gladly do this. These acrobats from China are one of the most amazing experiences I have ever seen anywhere. The music, the costumes, the talent of the performers surpassed all expectations and then some. It is a wonderful show for families and people of all ages.... More

We are very glad we decided to see this show, beautiful, colorful and exciting.The only down side was the whiny music, but it wouldn't feel like real Chinese with out it.

This was amazing!! The talent of the performers is truly outstanding! When we arrived at the theater and it was not even half full, we got a little concerned that perhaps this show wasn't that good. But that was not a problem! We definitely recommend checking this out and prepare to gasp and awe at their abilities! My photos aren't... More

These people know how to put on a show... It's crazy how high they jump and flip and tumble... Lots of talent and wasn't too crowded. Our kids enjoyed it and with no dialog in the show you don't have to worry about being offended or having to explain something to your children.
