I think there was a plot line but who cares with fountains, colour and movement occurring everywhere. A wonderful production with no dialogue races along from wonderful set , stunt, dance , scene to the next. Seating arena perfect and it seems like everyone gets a view so unsure VIP worth it. Entering and exiting the arena was without hassle... More

Amazing show, if your going to go well worth paying the extra to get a good seat, and try to get one of the ones near the front, you get a towel so you dont get too wet!!

In the absence of Vegas like shows at the Casinos the Dancing Water is the best show on the Cotai strip. Its a strange mix of dance, acrobatics set in mostly water. The stage is quite incredible, sit in the front rows and you are sure to get splashed.

I purchased tickets to this show months before we went to Macau. I read all the reviews and yes I do agree that the story is hard to follow, it is a little slow in places & the Motorbikes during the show has nothing to do with the story but let's put things in perspective. This is an absolutely amazing... More

This show has an interesting argument, nice scenes and good individual performances. A great opportunity to pass a good time with the family.

This show was brilliant. Totally entertaining and worth every penny. We sat on the second row in the splash zone and I highly recommend it - you get to feel more part of the action and see all the show up close.

I have wanted to see this show for years. It's the 5 Year Anniversary and I am happy I went. This show was created by Franco Dragone who was one of the original creators at Cirque du Soleil, who's shows I love! I knew House of Dancing Water would be great since Franco Drago directed O in Las Vegas. Anyway... More

The show was absolutely fantastic lasting nearly 2 hours. The people, costumes and the way the water comes in and out and the depth is amazing. It is a must for visiting Macau.
