They put nine motorcycles into a ball and had them all drive at once! This was insane but really really fun and entertaining. We recommend getting the VIP Seats though closer to the front but be prepared for a little water from the clowns, etc.

“As Expected”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Fun and entertaining. Acrobatics all the more amazing when you think of the hi-tech nature of Western circus performances.
All seats are good but try for the middle of the center section.

“Incredible talent!”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

The acrobatic show was very good and easy to find. The talent was incredible - albeit, the budget was very sparse - but that did not dampen our experience at all. The sound track and lighting was much like you and your friends would pull together over the weekend for a show in the garage. However, the talent was not - they quickly worked through a serious of various skits that were very entertaining and mouth dropping. Our three teenage boys all gave it two thumbs up!

The seating was interesting - the sides were predominantly Chinese nationals - and when we purchased our tickets (rather reserved them online, and paid cash when we arrived in Beijing) we didn't even see the side sections on the seat map. The "VIP" section on the seat map was completely empty (rows 5-12 I think)... but rows 1-4 had several families and then rows 13 and back had several as well. There is no reason to pay the premium to sit in rows 5-12 - the theatre is very small. They sell bottled drinks and snacks in the lobby - and the place is a bit of a dump - take some hand wipes. Don't let any of my review deter you from going - we would do it again and are very very glad we did it on this trip!
