“Waste of money”
Reviewed June 29, 2011

The show was boring. Also, the performers seemed unrehearsed at times. Items were dropped, performers lost their balance.

“Amazing, delightful, jaw dropping at times”
Reviewed June 25, 2011

This was an amazingly talented set of acrobats. They did all sorts of acts - traditional Chinese, hire wire, magic, juggling, aerial ballet, etc.
REALLY good, and reasonably priced.

I've seen the Chinese acrobats of Branson two times and love this year's changes! I couldn't do it justice by trying to explain my experience, so I'll simply say: Go See It!!!!

“Amazing”
Reviewed June 11, 2011

I wasn't aware that the human body was able to twist and bend like this. The Acrobats of China are spectacular. You have to see the feats and juggling they do to believe it. A great night of family entertainment. You can even meet them after the show. Highly recommended.

“Amazing Acobats like I have never seen anywhere, got to see”
Reviewed June 9, 2011

While visiting Branson this is a show you won't want to miss. These talented young men and women perform feats that are WOW! Did you see that!
Very, very colorful but please no video of show, but you can buy them in the lobby for just $20. that comes with other goodies.
While your waiting for the show you can watch young Artisans working building everything from jewelery to leave paintings.
