Brlliant show.A must see in Shanghai. We only had the 200rmb tickets and were delighted at the view.No restriction at all . Expensive seats not necessary. The skill of all the acrobats took our breath away and at times we couldnt believe what we were seeing. The finale with the motorbikes is unbelievable !!!!.

This was an average show with average feats. The ending with 8 motorcycles inside the ball of doom was impressive.

This is excellent show packed with incredible acrobatics. Definitely a must see show if at all interested in acrobatics show, there is no slow moments here just stunning acts one after another. Recommend avoiding the cheapest tickets and trying the second cheapest class. Even though the stage is round and there is fairly good visibility even from cheapest places you... More

This is easily the top most attraction in Shanghai. I am sure the performers are not humans, what they do seems unreal and unimaginable. These performers have mastered in all sorts of Chinese acrobats and watching them do what they do is something of a fantasy. The level of performance is just splendid, everyone has to go here. Its easily... More

We had pretty high expectations given the stellar reviews on TripAdvisor, but the show really blew us away. It's it's an amazing show and nothing like we had ever seen before. We splurged on the "VIP" tickets and got first row, center seats which allowed us to see the sweat beading off the performers faces as they were just a... More

If you want to see the Chinese acrobats - you must go to shanghai world circus! It is more than what you expected and if you order enough time ahead you get the chance to get good seats.

Our guide recommended this and we went not knowing what to expect. I can say we were astonished at the level of skill the performers had. It was a theatre that is small enough to feel you have a ringside seat and are close to the action. We paid the equivalent of £30 for a ticket and a taxi there... More

We have all seen variations on acrobatic shows on TV, in Vegas and at entertainment venues around the world but this is a great little show for an evening out in Shanghai. The most amazing part was the motorcylists riding inside a rigid sphere. How 9 riders managed to stay in place was a real question of physics and geometry... More
