Like Cirque but twice as good, and I like Cirque shows. We went with our kids who saw it before and wanted to see it again.
The plot is okay, but who cares. The stunts and effects are spectacular, including diving from the very ceiling of the venue - high enough so you could hardly see the guys, divers launching themselves off of swings, and best of all, a motorcycle act over ramps culminating in four motorcycles, launched from the four sides, crossing in the middle of the stage. Nothing to do with the plot but just awesome.
Our show started ten minutes late due to technical reasons, but given the complexity of this show I don't mind them being safe. We were just behind the splash zone. People in it had towels - didn't see any ponchos - but didn't seem to get that wet.
There were some empty seats in our performance, but I would recommend buying ahead.More
