After hearing so much hype I'm glad I decided to go see it myself. The show was spectacular and the design of the stage was unbelievable with it being a deep pool one minute and dry land the next. It is definitely a must see if you are in Macau. Although tickets were quite dear but it was well worth... More

A great night out! My boyfriend wasn't really to sure about going to see a dance show but by the end even he loved it. The story is a little confused but that really doesn't spoil it at all. If you think it will bother you then think of it as several short stories rather than one long one!! But... More

Don't hesitate = book it. Its very good and comparable with anything in Vegas. Front seats do get wet but they supply you with rain coats. Suitable for all ages.

Loved the show, truly spectacular feats. However, it seemed that everyone in the audience would prefer to watch it through phones and tablets, the extent of photo and film taking was unbelievable. I really feel they should be stricter on no photos allowed, it really does distract from what is going on on the stage.

The show was created by the same producer who created "O" in the Bellagio, Las Vegas - Mr. Franco Dragone, so the feels was quite similar. The immense use of water, high-tech stage effects and excellent performers executing massive aerial acrobatics were enough to keep the audiences gasping at their seats. To see the face of my children in awe... More

After reading the reviews about this attraction, me and my entire family went and saw the show. It was well worth it. The performers were awesome. Even my elder mother in law enjoyed it, and she especially enjoyed the motor bike part. The fact that almost all of the show is performed in the water make it truly special. You... More

I went into this show with high expectations, having read some very promising reviews and saw the astronomical production cost. Despite that, I was still impressed. The House of Dancing Water is 90 minutes of visual treat. The plot jumps around and can be confusing at times, but even that can't detract from the spectacular performance of the talented cast...

I had very little expectations when I went to see it, actually was ready to get underwhelmed and disappointed. Boy was I wrong! It was a fantastic show, from the very beginning until the end. My only complaint was that it was just too short! I'll definitely see this again the next time I'm in Macau!

Captivating from start to finish. Cute storyline. Motorcycles came out of nowhere though and didn't quite fit in. During performance you're very tempted to record and at the least take pictures of everything. Fight the urge and experience the show without your camera lens in front. Definitely worth the money since who knows when you'll return to ever-developing Macau.
