We are a family of four with adult teenagers. We all absolutely loved this show.
The variety is superb and some of the displays will have you sitting in the edge of your seat. Really worth the money and at a great time of day to go out for dinner afterwards.
All the seats are good and our 'cheap seats' were in a great location.
We booked via a guide about 4 hours before the show and paid 180 rmb each. No idea if this was market price but we thought it was excellent value.
Chinese theatre goers talk throughout the performance, leave before the end and don't show appreciation by applauding as other nations do, but if you know this in advance it won't irritate you!

If you're looking for a light hearted and amazing display of strength and death defying stunts, you've found it! Very much worth the money :)

How do they do all these things. Stacking chairs and standing upside down on them. Riding motorcycles in a ball and not hitting each other. Great leaps through loops and over loops and on and on. Superb show.

We recently attended the show and liked it very much. Several different acts will definitely keep everyone entertained. The final act was amazing!

The show is about an hour, so well worth your time to see. The stunts and tricks and physical feats these performers accomplish are amazing. Each stunt seems to surpass the next, and it's always more impressive than you think it will be.

The only complaint is the theater seats - they are not staggered, meaning, you will sit directly behind a seat (rather than in most American theaters, where you are sort of in-between, or off-center behind seats).

I wouldn't waste the money on the premium seats, as they are quite expensive and the theater is not that large, however, I would get the mid-range priced-seats and not the cheap seats. Those might not have the best view.
