I loved the energy of the diving, acrobatics and jumping motorcycles, but the love story is confusing and distracting. Read about it online before you go because they give you no brochure or explanation at the show. The theater/stage is an impressive feat of engineering that could be utilized better by allowing the athletic performers to show their talents instead... More

Amazing show! Only bad thing I could say is that I did not completely understand the story line, in saying that I did not need to understand the story to enjoy the performances. Only show worth seeing in Macau!

One of the best shows I have ever seen. The divers, swimmers, dancers/actors are incredibly talented. The show is beautifully written and designed. We were blown away by the athleticism of the performers, the lighting, set design and costumes. Fantastic! Halfway in to the show you realize that each building step will only get better. By the time the motorcycles... More

We sat in A Reserve seats but any seat in the theatre would give you a great view. The front seats are so close to the action BUT be aware - if you want to get wet sit there. Ponchos are provided for the front row and the next two rows up are given towels to keep them dry. The... More

Our seats were located in the best place to get the optimum view of the stage. When we arrived we were served quickly and both had a glass of champagne and we given a tray... More
