I've been here first time about 8 years ago, it was a pathetic show, even less exciting than what I was used to see on TV. Now they improved a lot, and it became a quite entertaining show. Not as good as Shanghai's ERA show, but very close. if you're not going to Shanghai or missed the show there, then... More

The acrobats were amazing - Cirque Du Soliel level. Our favorite were the bicycles and the motorcycle act. We seem many motorcycle in the sphere acts before, but we never seem 8 motorcycles in the sphere. The performers had amazing energy-level, considering they do 2-3 shows a day.

The motorbikes were amazing and the show was great fun. We booked the cheapest seats and they were just fine with good views.

Sometimes when you visit a show you know exactly what to expect. I've seen this performance before in other countries but this time it exceeded my expectations. All the acts were one step ahead and more dangerous tricks were performed. Besides that the music and decor were beautiful and in line with the rest of the show. The only downside... More

What a wonderful show they put on. Amazing act, colourful costumes, a great evening. The show is suitable for all ages and you'll marvel at the flexibility, stamina and grace of the performers.

Though the performance itself is not bad, the entire show is over-commercialized and intended only for tourists. I would recommend looking for a more authentic alternative.

Amazing experience to watch: acrobatics, stunt motor bike riding. Not particularly traditional nor a circus with clowns. Easy to book on-line and this yielded good seats. Well worth it.
