This was my first Chinese acrobatic show, I have to say that I was extremely impressed and I Am very happy for having been there. You can feel very strongly the Chinese touch in the show, and humor is included in a very discrete way. The show is a bit short for what is costs, but still I think that... More

This was an 'extra' trip organised by a tour guide but well worth the visit, the show finale with the bikes in the wire orb were a definate wow factor we all came out saying what an excellent show.

White knuckle acrobatics (as in, please tell me s/he isn't going to fall) covering a range of traditions and feats, all in performed in lovely costumes. Only question I have is about pricing---the theater is small, and there didn't seem to be any bad seats. The steeply priced (480 rmb for a one hour show) VIP section was almost empty... More

Did think we were coerced into this a bit by the guide,but well worth it. It just got better and better, and when you thought it couldn't possible improve, it did.

Very entertaining show that runs about 1.5 hours with a 10 minute intermission. Recommend sitting in one of the first four rows. Also suggest contacting an English speaking internet travel agent as anyone one of them can get you a better deal for ticket prices than from the website. If it can be avoided, do not buy directly from the... More

Do not miss this Acrobatics show while in Beijing. I only put this one on my "maybe" list but ended up going to the show and throughly enjoyed it. The show lasts just a bit over an hour, so perfect for kids. While the production may not be a Cirque, it is equally amazing in a totally different way, not... More

We loved our evening here. This is NOT Cirq du Soleil, but very enjoyable nonetheless. With that said, the ending is unbelievable! Don't miss this show.

We really enjoyed this show and we're so glad we went. When we walked in and saw the tired old theatre we were a bit dubious, but once the show started we were totally captivated to end. The acts were fabulous, from balance acts to juggling to acrobatics to eight motor bikes in a dome! Excellent night out and we... More

In honestly this did not live up to my expectations but was very good. My two daughters thought it was great and it was a nice way to spend the evening after a long day of walking. Just don't go expecting this to in anyway compete with a Vegas Circ show or you will be disappointed, but you also don't... More
