Circus is amazing! The acts flow from one into the next seamlessly. The acts are amazing and highly entertaining! This show is great for adults and children. I took my 2 year old and I had no problem...she was completely engrossed in the show.

It was great! Action packed acrobatics with a bit of comedy thrown in. I would definitely go again!

Big bang for the bucks spent! You won't find a better value anywhere in town. I don't understand why this show doesn't sell out every single performance.

well worth the money and had FAntastic seats.......Goldstar came through again.
Try and do it on a wednesday night when you can see the firework show afterwords....
These people work very hard and it seems so much more accessable

The choreography is beautiful and delicate yet strong and wonderfully executed. The talents these young performers have is truly amazing. We enjoyed the performance and It was fun that they involved the audience, which is always entertaining.

I'm glad I purchased tickets thru your website. It would not have been worth the price at the window. It's a little over an hour long. Some of the acts were amazing - the motorcycles in the ball. But, really expected more.

We had a party of 12 - teenagers and adults. Everyone loved it. We had our mouths open in awe most of the time. It went by so quickly, we could have stayed for another hour. Good family fun.

Every year the show becomes slicker and more entertaining. It is a short show, but worth every penny.

It was fun with very talented performers, but the timeframe listed for the event read "75 minutes). This performance was just over 60 minutes.

My husband loved it. I was not as into the whole thing, although they are great performers. Just acrobats are not my favorite.

Very reasonable price and these guys and girls are really flexible. I wish I could fold my body up like that. It's not as elaborate as a major Cirque production but for the price the acts were excellent.

This show gets better and more daring each year. While we missed some of the "twirlers" (umbrellas on the feet; Chinese yoyo), the motorcycle stunt show and the other acrobatics made up for it. At just over an hour, it's suitable for all ages to...continued

I attended this with my nieces aged 6 and 3. they loved it. It is a show for kids and it fulfilled the bill. the 6 year old was high-fived by one of the performers and it made her day.

Not really worth reviewing, since I think it closed, but I will say a few things:

Not bad for a Chinese Acrobat show, but not nearly at the level of most of what you will see at cirques. Lacked any storyline and only a few tricks really...continued

I took my grandson to celebrate his 5th birthday. He was really interested and it held his attention. I thought it was a bit boring. The costumes were beautiful and the acts were amazing but just a bit too much of the same thing. And,...continued

Seats were good and price was ok through Goldstar. However, show was advertised as 75 minutes and was clearly over in one hour. A rip!!!!
