Great fun

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

This is my second visit to this acrobatic show first time was in 2008. Loved it more this time. If you are a fan of beauty of human skil then this is a must see for you in Beijing. Your money will be well spent, guaranteed.

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.

Went in with a big group of college students. All were amazed by the show, including us. Although the theater is a bit old and seats are not comfy, the show itself is truly engaging. I do not know the price as it was included in the tour, but it is worth the time for sure. The motorcycle show is... More

I never really liked the circus in the west, but Chinese acrobatics was just so much more interesting. More than just a spectacle, it was a breathtaking display of how extreme, feats can really get. Also I soon realized that online discount ticket booking sites give you the best price!! Don't reserve with your hotel or you will end up... More

So we were very much entertained, by the beautiful dancing, acrobatics and motorcyclists skill... However others expecting a more traditional experience were a little disappointed.

This would be a good activity for kids but overall I found the timing off and the stunts weren't particularly fresh, with the motorcycle act being an exception.
