Better than any similar show I have ever seen. Cirque de Solei is nothing in comparation with this show. I highly recommend it.

Went to an afternoon performance not really knowing what to expect! Left the theatre 90mins later astounded, thoroughly entertained and smiling from ear to ear for another couple of hours. Didn't stop talking about the show with my family and other members of my tour, for the rest of that day/night. Fabulous and a must see.

My husband and 9 year old daughter went to this performance (we had been debating between this show and the Kung Fu show) and we were very happy with our decision! We are used to seeing things like Cirque de Soleil and other Vegas-style professional performance art, so we were a little apprehensive that this show would seem too amateurish.... More

Amazing ! We went there with our kids they loved it. It's worth the ticket ! There easy to go there the theater is closed to a metro station. A must if you are in Beijing.

This review is about where to sit in the theatre. We sat on row 4 and, for me, it was a little too close. The first two rows would be really bad, as some of the performers are right over the seats. Not only would you be looking up, but also it would be scary having them perform perilous acts... More

We were dumbfounded by the acrobatics of these young people. The motorcycles were awesome. We videotaped it so our grandkids could see it when we got home. The chair stacker was also amazing. Well worth the time. It's a good rest after a long day on your feet, as well.

Highly recommend this show for a wonderful view of Chinese acrobatic skills. It was a visual feast and the acrobats did some of the most amazing feats.

My wife and I finally saw the show with two acquaintances and their daughter. I'm glad we did becuse this was definitely one of the best ways to spend a few hours in Beijng. Additionally 8 Motorbikes wizzing around in a sealed globe was spectacular !!!

This is a must see. The show is amazing it has so many talented performers some of them looked very young. You will not take your eyes off the stage. The theater needs an upgrade as well as the performers costumes. Beware they do not have western toilets.

Children all ages will enjoy this show and even adults. The acrobatics are superior to Cirque du Soleil. The theatre is really small and although we went for VIP tickets almost all seat have very good views. Note the seat space is really small, so if your tall and I mean anything more than 5 10 then choose row 15... More
