“Absolutely Incredible!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I can't think of one negative word for this performance. This is the second time we have gone to see them and I would go again in a heartbeat. The feats of strength, flexibility, balance, juggling, dancing, and all with gracefulness are wonderful, incredible!

“Most impressive show in Branson”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

I saw four shows during my visit to Branson and this was by far the best! There were about 20 performers and all were top notch. I've seen more than 10 Cirque du Soleil's over the years and these guys are just as talented, but half the price. I highly recommend this show!

“One of the top highlights of our Branson vacation”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Amazing and incredible stunts, not only requiring tireless practice but also amazing strength, balance and agility. It's like these are the people who didn't make the Chinese Olympic team, or perhaps the other way around. The show is about 2 hours long with a 15-minute intermission. My only complaint was the poor audio quality of the recorded music, I mean it really sounded cheap like they downloaded it just minutes before the show from the internet. The speakers are good, it's the music quality aka sample rate that is poor. Other than that, amazing show! Also, they do not always have all the acts/stunts you may see on the posters in the lobby so they must mix them up a bit season to season or perhaps depending who is on or off on a given day.
