What a Show

If visiting Shanghai I would highly recommend you take in this show. The performance was amazing. There are a couple of acrobat shows in Shanghai, but having spoke to others who had seen them all they also agreed that this was the best
amazing skill

Althoug the stunts were incredible the performers didn't really build connection with the audience. But, I loved the silk acrobatics towards the end of the show and the 7 motorbikes inside the sphere w a.c astonishing.
Fabulous show and easy to get in.
, Dec 2019
I was worried about getting tickets using mobile and not printing in china, but it was obvious where to go, and took less than a minute to pick up the tickets with no line from showing the voucher on my phone. Although we didn't have seats assigned, we received 2nd row seats in the section we paid for. It was an amazing view. The show is very aimed at the people in the VIP section, but I didn't feel I lost too much being in a cheaper seat. I just got a lot of side views rather than straight on. The show was great, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
Fun for the whole family
, Nov 2019
A really fun and amazing show for the whole family. Kids were just enthralled and amazed by each act. A great venue to see the show, really no bad seats in this semicircle theatre. Highly recommended
Not very impressive
, Oct 2019
I was looking forward to see the Chinese acrobats that I heard so much about. The venue was perfect and one can see well from every part of the place and there is no good reason to go for the expensive ones. Further, the hall was far from being full, which means that you can buy tickets on your own before the show. Most of the acts were seen in any mediocre circus, and in some cases in more elegant ways with fewer mistakes. The most impressive act was the motorcycles in the metal ball, bettor than I have ever seen. In summary, in Shanghai there are not many 'attractions' and this could be nice way to spend an evening - too expensive for what you get-- in my opinion (many seemed to likeit 0. -
Amazing acrobatics
, Oct 2019
The show is fun for all ages. Great performance and colorful show. We sat at area D in the front row, which is considered the worst place in the theater, but we were able to see everything in all details and get the maximum of this show. Highly recommended!
Wild Experience!
, Oct 2019
Each of the acts were amazing. The venue was so small so you have unbelievable visibility of the show. Highly recommend!

I visited with my son. It was awesome. Absolutely stunning performances. Online ticket purchase through VIATOR was a breez.
Kids were on their phones most of the show
, Aug 2019
Some parts were very good. Most of the show was boring. Kids were on their phones most of the show. There were some exciting parts but mostly slow. Not worth the money
Spectacular, breathtaking
, Jun 2019
A truly spectacular show not to be missed. Well worth the 30 min cab ride (or take the Metro) from centre of Shanghai. The motor-cycle finale is the most amazing feat of precision and daring I have ever seen.
