“great performance”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Bought our tickets at our hotel's concierge. No extra charge. RMB300 a ticket. But I guess seats of any price offers similar view except that of RMB600.
Situated outside one of the exits of Shanghai Circus World metro station.
With the circus on the right, cross the street and there is a pedestrian mall. Cant remember name of building, but good food plaza on fifth floor.
Good performance, but I feel that some stunts cannot be performed with wires attached to the back. The wires provided a sense of security. The strong man stunts were good. I also enjoyed the men on stilts show. The 4 motorcyclists coordinated very very well.
It is a modern performance with very good props.
My thoughts:
1 How do those limber girls grow old? Will the joints give trouble?
2 Acts of such quality will disappear with time. Children these days cannot and will not go through those stringent training day in and day out. There are accidents and (maybe) deaths that we dont hear about.

“Excellent evenings entertainment, BUY the cheapest seats they provide perfect viewing !”
Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Great evening, amazing acrobatics and thankfully we had read the TA reviews and bought the cheapest seats at 120yuan and they were perfect, seats go up to 600yuan and there is very little difference as it's a circular arena, we really enjoyed the evening !!

“Meh. If you've seen one you've seen them all.”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

If you've seen another acrobat show, you probably won't be blown away by this show. The circular stage is nice, not bad seats anywhere you sit and maybe better effects than other shows, but the acts are mostly the same as other shows in other venues, so if you are hoping for something completely original and mind blowing (like I was after reading many of the reviews on this site), disappointment is a possibility. My girls (4 & 3) have seen two other very similar shows and were still completely mesmerized. That alone made it worthwhile.

One of the best Acrobats I have seen. It was a amazing..It is simply stunning and the word breath-taking.The performing people are Olympic level in skills and capability. .7-8 motorbikes in a relatively small metal sphere with the associated danger is unbelievable" was the best
