From the jugglers to the acrobats to the high-wire, and the finale of the motorbikes in the globe, this was a great evening. Very comfy seats, with loads of legroom, and the time just flew by. A definite must-see.

We didn't expect to see this show when we visited Shanghai. Our local guide, Avril, form our China Odyssey tour that suggested us to see this acrobat. We watched the show and it was one of a kind show. The kids enjoyed so much and we had a great time watching it.

but I'd say it's better and somewhat different. It has a Cirque de Soliel quality to it - the extraordinary athleticism done with remarkable precision and even more grace - but I've never seen six motorcycles defying gravity with the use of centrifugal force in a small dome - at times I had to close my eyes as my more...

The acrobatics was stunning. Especially the motorcycles in the dome. How can they get so many in a small dome like that and have no accidents! From memory they got six in the night that we went and I understand they have had as many as eight. The show was one of the better ones that I saw while in... More

Good acrobats. Acts are way too long. It was death defying and boring simultaneously - if that is even possible. If this is your thing, you should go. If not, you can live without it.

An experience not to be missed.Those strong men and women are a must see. The most thrilling part of the evening were the motorcycles in the sphere

Great show to see if you are visiting Shanghai. I bought my ticket ahead of time but you could easily buy your ticket at the door on a week night. Was an entertaining circus/acrobat/stunt show. A great experience if you are in Shanghai... A must!

I have seen better when the troupe was on tour. Could be that being on their own home turf has dampened some of the vigor and originality.
