The acts were amazing. My favorite was the bicycle act where twelve girls climb on each other. Watching a Chinese acrobatics show is one thing but watching it in Beijing itself is a completely different experience.

If it was free it would be amusing but that you paid for such badly directed run of the mill circus is a bummer. I had a bit of child labor concerns honestly. All that said the actual talent was pretty good. Bicycle and contortions were impressive. Hand balancing good too

I'm not a big fan of this kind of shows but this one really surprised me. They are all very competent artists and they all put a lot of effort to make a great show. Highly recommended!

Honestly, really didn't want to go. I was tired and hungry and had no interest. But my daughter insisted (we do anything for daughters right?) Well the show was only about an hour with non-stop action. Very professional, exciting and even funny. Very happy I was "forced" to go and would be happy to recommend it.

We were a little unsure how it would be. The theater was a little old and dumpy and the first acts were a bit "eh", but then they started doing some really impressive acts and by the end, I was surprised that both my husband and I were saying things like "No way!" and "I can't believe this!" I'm glad... More

The show was great.... but the lack of safety wires had me very concerned! It was evident that the acrobats train very hard in their acts. Don't catch a taxi - the traffic pre and post show was manic.

Brilliant night out. Don't catch a cab though as the traffic jam around the theatre before the nighttime performance will sap your money and may result in missing some of the performance. Best to catch the metro to the station right across the road.

A local friend helped us squire tickets for ¥150 and our seats were right in the center and just a few rows back from the front of the stage. Great seats and a fantastic show. Everyone in our group of 9 completely loved the show -- and we had people aged between 13 and 66. The costumes, lights, performers --... More

Our guide suggested this show and he was right, the show was absolutely great. The acrobats are amazing, you will feel very nervous. I would recommend this show....also, try to buy the $45 ticket...you will have great view.

Why not see Chinese acrobats when in China, right? Short show, amazing performance, reasonable price.
