We finally went to Taipei Eye and it was wonderful! The tickets can be purchased ahead of time in their English website, which is very helpful. This little auditorium is small enough that everyone will get a good seat, but big enough that there's room for many people. As you enter, you are welcomed by many ushers, who give you... More

It was a good experience, that fact that it is adjacent to a mall, cinema complex and arcade makes it quite fun for families.

It opens at 11am, better to be early as it is a popular destination for tour buses. Once tour groups arrive, they come in the dozens!! Thus queuing for the tickets and lift, up and down can be fairly long.

While vacationing in Taipei, we took our two young kids (four and seven) to the Saturday night show at Taipei Eye. The show was excellent. Our kids loved it. The Saturday show is actually two parts: first half before intermission is a Lion Dance show; second half is a Chinese Opera show. We enjoyed both parts. What's really neat about... More

Really good introduction to Chinese Opera - watched the actors being made up and preparing for the performance. Subtitles meant we understood the dialogue on stage, amazing acrobatics and juggling in addition to the music/ singing. Well worth a visit.

Our family of four loved seeing The Lion Dance at Taipei Eye and that includes my 12 year old son and my 70 year old mother, who both sat with grins throughout the show. We were charmed by the performances and in awe at the costumes and acrobatic feats. As we sat in the front row, both my mum and... More

Our jet lag caught up with us, so we fell asleep half-way through the performance. Sad thing is, it doesn't seem to have mattered much- the plot was a bit boring. The Immortals got drunk and went on a voyage- then each of them fought/played with a fish. For a long time. That's pretty much it. That being said, the... More

I read from here that it's nice show, and since it was close to hotel, decided to go see. Boy was I in for a surprise. The show was simply amazing! The pre-show stuff was nice add and then the show just blew your mind. Great acrobatics, nice story and beautiful costumes. Not to forget good music. Easily goes to... More
