A "must see"

Wonderful production. Make sure you see this when in Macau. It was a highlight for our family. Every seat is a good one because of the horseshoe shaped theatre.

I had wanted to see this show since I had seen the Le Reve in Vegas which was a previous production of Franco Dragone. This show I must say was just a spectacular although the story was disjointed especially when the motorcycles were involved. The layout of the theatre really does mean there are no bad seats. We sat rather... More

Yes the story line makes no sense and is hard to follow. But in all other ways this show is truly extraordinary. Spectacular stunts, many of which would probably not pass muster in the U.S. due to the risks involved. My three children (6, 8 and 10) were enthralled. I would not recommend for younger than 6-7, as the music... More

All the reviews are right. This show begins with a bang and keeps you engaged throughout. It will entertain both kids and adults. A mixture of Cirque de Soleil ,a musical and a Disney film ...with a love story thrown in. I cant sing enough praises for the show It may not be cheap...but I do not regret a penny... More

This show is great for all age and all public. This is truly amazing. The stage is a deep pool which turned into islands which turned into a solid floor for crazy motorcyclist acrobats. This a la Cirque du Soleil show definitely worth the trip. There are no real bad seats.

When booking tickets for the show I was initially a bit concerned about the price, they are expensive BUT having seen the show they are are definitely worth the money. The 360 degree theater itself is very impressive and from the moment the show begins you are kept at the edge of your seat by the skill and daring of... More

The show is located very close to the entrance of grand Hyatt Macau main lobby and starts at 5 pm or 8pm The sound is sometimes a bit high for the... More
