This was such a treat and change of pace from your typical Branson show. All my children loved it from the adults on down to my eleven year old. We didn't know your body could twist like that...

Saw this show for the first time. The acrobats are truly amazing. They hold you in your seat the whole show. Almost two hours of non stop action. Great performance.

We enjoyed seeing this show very much. It's in a theater off the beaten path, but worth the drive. The narrator is a bit hard to understand, but really don't think you miss much not knowing what she says. The acrobats are excellent, and perform a wide variety of stunts. The show is 2 hrs long and there is a... More

This was a very entertaining group of young people. They kept our 5 year old entertained and that's awesome! The seats have plenty of room, they offer concessions and have an intermission about 1/2 way through. There is a meet and greet at the end, but the young folks just kind of stand around, not sure what their level of... More

I had a hard time deciding on which Chinese Acrobat show to see. This one was good and enjoyable, but I would have to see the other one to be able to make a fair comparison. I have seen one other Chinese Acrobat show, but that was at Astroworld 20 years ago. That was so impressive that I had great... More

Excellent show!! This was somewhat confusing because there are two different Shanghai shows. We saw this show about 10 years ago. Someone told us they broke away from each other. I don't know what the other one is like but this one was excellent!

Impressive feats of strength by amazing athletes, beautifully presented. The synchronization of the teams was unbelievable! We all liked it, kids and adults alike. Would definitely recommend.

We attended this show earlier in the year and were very impressed....so when we returned to Branson last week with our grandchildren (ages 3 and 6) we wanted them to see this show. We went to the evening show & were a little concerned the kids may get too tired...but this show kept their attention the whole time. It was... More

OMGosh, this was one of the best shows I've ever been to! It lasted about 2 hours with a 15 minute intermission & I wasn't ready for it to be over. Many times during the show I was nervous because I just couldn't imagine people being able to do what these people were doing & I was afraid something would... More
