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.

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've seen these acrobats in the States but did not realize they were all part of the Government troupe. I liked everything about the performance, all seats were good as the theatre is not huge.

Spending a night for visiting the Acrobat Show really worth, I have never seen like this before in any city I have ever traveled. Reserve a sit one day before to get some discount and ask about seat at the center to see the show in a perfect angel.
