This was so amazing. First of all , as other reviews said, it is a small arena and you do not need to get the priciest seats. It was like Cirque de Soliel without the production values, but that is replaced by incredible acrobatic skills and a insane risk level. So much fun!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

Really great show, had good view from the seats we booked tier4, the cheaper seats, is something to put on your to see list while in Shanghai


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

A beautiful show well worth a visit. The venue is only small so don't waste money on expensive tickets. We paid for the cheapest available on Viator and had a great view. It is easy to get to the circus by the Metro or we paid 40 yuan approx. 5 at the time for a taxi from the Bund. We arrived early to collect our tickets from the box office and then ate at the Mall 5 minuets down the road. The same tickets can be purchased at the venue for 150 yuan if you don't want to commit to a time before your visit.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

This was a really impressive show. It was amazing and enjoyable, a highlight for our group. Easy to travel there using the metro and as others have said any tier allows great visibility. We used tier 3.

Had reservations about using a Viator booking to redeem my tickets but to my surprise, it was done in 3 seconds at the box office! Amazing show, even much better than any of the Cirque de Soleils I've seen. If you're taking the metro Line 1, alight at Shanghai Circus World station, take Exit 3. Circus is just 100m south of the exit.

A must see when traveling to Shanghai!

The place is small so if you're not too picky with seats section C is fine. Choose a seat at the center if you want better view of the show. If you're going to Disneyland though some of the acts in the Tarzan show are similar. There is a restaurant nearby but refuses to serve customers if you arrive late. Best to arrive 17:00 for early dinner. There is a metro station nearby.
