“Awesome”

It was a great show. Super fun and very exciting! The acrobats are so small, yet so strong. And it was 2 hours!

“Shanghai Circus”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We saw this once and enjoyed it, but not the kind of show we care to see repeatedly. They are quite talented and the show is top notch for what they do.

“Must See!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Simply incedible. We sat in the front row, and part of the show was above our heads, I think they were swinging over the second row. The more you know about strength and balance, the more incredible it is. I can not recomend this show highly enough. The performers all go out to the lobby afterwards and will stand and take pictures with you, as well as signing autographs. Go early and check out the displays and gift shop.

“Excellent”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Really good show, well worth the price of admission. Each act had it's own twist and there were tremendous feats of strength and agility on the part of the acrobats. It was a tribute to what people can do with discipline and training. A real inspiration.

“Excellent show! Talented acrobatics!”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

This show is a terrific alternative if you're looking for something in Branson other than a country variety show. The acrobats fly to incredible heights during the 2 hour spectacle. Only drawback was the theatre, it could use some updating in the seating area but all in all it was an excellent value!
