We watched the acrobatic show. It was amazing and perfect for a little break from the constant walking you do to see this beautiful city. The theatre was relatively empty (other than the crowds of chines tourist groups) the show itself breathtaking at points. You can appreciate the hard work and training they must do to be able to do... More

First, the show was amazing. We had three kids ages 6-9 with us and they stayed entertained the whole time. The show was short, just over one hour. Snacks such as popcorn, ice cream, and drinks were available to purchase. Our seats were on the 2nd row, and it was two close. The theatre is small so I think even... More

Chaoyang theatre represents many shows just like acrobatics and Chinese opera. The theatre is very old and not clean enough. Thee moment I got inside there was a very bad smell that I couldn't handle. The shows are done by a group of amateurs trying to find their way to professionalism and I respect them for that, but you have... More

Was an amazing show, much better than any show in Las Vegas! Superior in every way! Difficult to get a cab later to the hotel.

First I would say I'm not sure a "VIP" ticket is warranted. We paid almost 600Yuan for some really good seats (and they were very close), but I'm not sure we would have missed anything by paying 50% less. The front was near empty as it was for the late show (7pm) so it wasn't like we had to look... More

Really enjoyed the performances, every act were skilfully done. What stood out for me were the Bikes in the cage, what they did was scary and unbelievable. Other amazing acts were 2-actor acrobatics, a lot of muscle and balance went into it. Bicycle acrobatics was also great. Frankly all the acts were crazy awesome although they do start to feel...

My family and another family stopped here for the acrobatics show, and we absolutely loved it. I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, me or my 6-year-old daughter! The acrobats were incredibly skilled and also quite daring, there were some literal death-defying feats going on! It's a madhouse trying to get in and out but that's typical of China, they... More

This is a great show, not too long and full of variety. Very flexible people, we saw bicycle acts, motorbike acts, juggling, as numerous acrobatic acts. Quick moving and easy to watch. Not too expensive and worth it. Like a mini Cirque de soleil.

There were a few mistakes/falls/spills in some of the acts, which only made the suspense of other acts more intense! Definitely a show worth seeing, and don't bother paying for the expensive tickets. A few jaw-dropping moments. Summary - a fun hour with great time had by all.

We went as a group ( 6 adults in their 30s, and one 6 year old) and every last one of us LOVED this show! Pros: -Thrilling, honestly! The show was far from perfect, but that just made it all the more exciting. The performers are incredibly talented and you can see them struggle sometimes with their acts. As an... More
