Truly entertaining, a must-see if you are in Macau. The story, tech of the ever changing/evolving stage (dry to wet to dry.....) with big props (including a ship!) emerging from below water and later submerged to nowhere, all the special effects and of course the daredevil artists makes it a wholesome show. Suitable for all ages, worth the price. We... More

The show depends on it's "gimmick" - a stage that seamlessly transforms into a deep pool - but nevertheless it is entertaining, featuring lots of high dives. Makes for an enjoyable evening, and well worth visiting if in Macau. A bit pricey though, like everything on Cotai strip.

I thought this show was absolutely amazing. I had no idea what to expect, and from the title thought it might be some fountains and music!! but it was a wonderful, exciting assault on the senses. The lights, music, dance, gymnastic feats and water all combine as the performers tell a romantic story and the battle between good and evil.... More

One of the best live shows! Breathtaking and exquisite, the dancing and acting was excellent. The high power motor bikes stunts were frightening but fantastic.The best thing about Macau!!! Don't sit any closer than Row E if you don't want to get wet from the sprays of water. They do provide blankets for cover. Saturday is more expensive than other... More

Altogether, it was a good experience in this side. O is still better though. The stage was fantastic and similar. However, the story line seemed weak. While the performances by the bikers was great, it didn't seem to go with a water theme. Felt like a three ring circus at that point. Nevertheless, it's still a good show. The performers... More

The stage was able to transform between a platform and a deep pool within seconds. Actors would rise out of the pool as they entered the stage underwater, and dive in as they exited. I found out later that there was a team of professional divers guiding the actors to enter and exit. Well worth the money!

This is a very exciting show of lights, water and action. Not to be missed if you are in Macau. The tickets on Saturday are more expensive than on other days. So if you are in Macau for a few days go on other days instead of Saturday. The motorbike stunts were rather scary but we enjoyed them anyway. Overall... More
