This celebrated Acrobatic Troupe is from the province of Jinan and is known for their colorful costuming and cutting-edge creation of new acts. For over 18 years the Incredible! Acrobats of China featuring New Shanghai Circus have been entertaining Branson audiences.

Our dance studio is in Branson for nationals, and a group of eighteen decided that we would all go together and see the show. The show was fantastic, and our kids as well as the adults who went, absolutely loved it.

I found the show to be pretty good. It was rather amazing the way some of these performers were able to bend and move. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because during intermission they only had one person working concessions and we were still in line when the show started up again, my only...

We saw this show with friends last year and went back with grandsons. Totally different show. Amazing variety of acts. Our kids told their parents it was best show of their trip.

There was alot of talent in the acrobatic show. The acrobats were very enthusiastic while performing their tricks. Some of the performances we watched were the hat juggling, foot juggling, bicycle stunts, chair tower, and the contortionists performance. Their talent is amazing! Great show.

Our overall experience at the Acrobats of China at 470 Missouri 248 was good. The kids were very enthusiastic and very skilled at their craft. However the air conditioning was out and frankly that was a downer for us. We were not told about it until we got there and of course the usual excuse, "We have to wait for... More

We saw the other Chinese Acrobats the last time while in Branson so we thought we would give this group a try this time. Pros: Amazingly gifted and talented acrobats who performed standard traditional acts such as unicycle riding cup in hat (I don't know proper names for these...), bicycle stunts, chair towers, etc., mixed with more modern takes with...

The amount, variety, and quality of acrobatic stunts that are performed during this show are incredible. Every routine was amazing and flowed seamlessly to the next one. The juggling act was probably my favourite; there is an added element of difficulty you don't want to miss. Any seat would have been fine but we ended up in the front row... More

This show was fantastic. I wasn't sure how acrobatics was going to be entertaining for 2 hours but, oh my gosh, it was mind blowing! The acrobats did amazing stunts and the show flowed really well. We didn't pay full price since we had a vacation voucher but I highly recommend this performance!
