the show itself was pretty amazing. the acrobats were extremely skilled. we were a little disappointed in how our tickets were organised. our hotel explained that we just show our receipt (which showed we had paid for our tickets) at the box office. the box office told us to go inside. the people inside had no idea and didn't really...

I thought I had seem most of what there is to see with acrobatic shows but there is one segment of this show that will blow your mind. A motorcycle inside a steel globe could be scary, but 8 of them all at once is a sight to behold. God only knows how they do it.

This show went for an hour and was just amazing, some of the performances were really breathtaking. The grand finale was eight motorcycles all spinning around inside a wire sphere at high speed, incredible.

We were in a tour in China and we had the chance to see this show. Well worth the admission, and you won't be disappointed. Less flashy than the acrobatic show in Hanzhou, but offer more acrobatic acts. We are a family of 4, and the young children was very thrill with the show. The only downer is the crowds... More

This is my second visit to the theatre. I watched the acrobatic in the same theatre 3 years ago, when I first visited Beijing. The quality dropped tremendously, and seems more commercialised. It's good, but I feel that the standard dropped. 7 bikes in the cage is impressive, but previously they performed the stunts inside the cage for a few... More

Although the show is quite short in length, the amazing acrobats and skills displayed is well worth every minute. The child in you will definitely come out once the lights starts to dim.

If you haven't been to a Chinese acrobatic show, this is a good performance. Most of the audience are tourist but nevertheless the performance is entertaining

I give credit to the performers of this show. Their athleticism and professionalism are not being knocked by this review. The show lacked continuity. The Cirque Shanghai performance I saw in Chicago surpassed this acrobatic performance in Beijing. However, if this is your first acrobatic show - it is worth the money. Just keep in mind there may be better... More

This show lasted for about an hour and overall was terrific. The finale had first one motor bike and then up to eight all roaring around inside a cage, thoroughly recommend.
