Think acrobatic circus. Add water. Lots of water (this is unusual, maybe even unique - and yes, do expect to get wet in the front few rows ....). A few extra random circus acts thrown in. That's it. Nice simple entertainment slightly overpriced. Quite well done. I wasn't overawed by the experience but did enjoy. Is there more to it... More

The show was absolutely amazing, the acrobats,divers, dancers are just so skilful and talented, and it is so exciting to watch with amazing techniques used. When the ship emerges from the water it is so incredible to see, a huge amount of work must go into this. Well worth the price od the ticket and the ferry across from HK.... More

I had really low expectations of this show, but I was left very impressed. Acrobatics were breathtaking, and the set was particularly impressive. I have been raving about it to everyone since I went. Great show.

The show is very amazing with all the infrastructure and the characters. Very good acrobatic scenes on the air, also the motorcycles show is very good. The ticket fee "general" is around 500 HKD.

The Dancing Water Show is an excellent production along the lines of Cirque Du Soliel. There are dozens of performers and support crew involved. The auditorium is well designed so that all seats have a close and unimpeded view of the show. There is no need to stump up the extra money for VIP tickets as the other seats are... More

What a fantastic show! The mix of acrobatics, dancing, puppetry, costumes, special effects, and for some reason a motorbike display was fantastic and kept the whole crowd enthralled. Don't miss out!

The house of dancing water show takes place at the City of Dreams complex in Macau. It was not possible to book my own seats online, but no problem. You can buy tickets all day, next to the theatre. Better not buy tickets in the so called splash area. You are really getting wet there. The show is fast, entertaining... More

I was expecting this show to be something on the lines of Song of the Seas at Sentosa Island in Singapore and I was wrong. This is an indoor show and is much better. The artists are amazing and so is the set that has been built. The story is predictable but nice. The show is much about the artists... More
