This acrobatic show is recommendable! The performance of the chinese acrobats are amazing. The music and act need to be worked with, this show is a must see in beijing.

We were admittedly skeptical going in, but this really is spectacular. The performers are all incredibly talented. They could entertain any audience in the world. Try for seats in the middle or front. It is a narrow theatre, so the seats in the back are WAY in the back.

We dragged our adult friends here because my 6 year old wanted to see the show. I think we loved it more than our child. Wow, those motorcycles really keep you on the edge of your seat. Definitely a highlight of the trip.

must see show in beijing - tickets are cheap online, about $30 to see this amazing show that lasts about an hour. There are several shows in beijing and choose the one which you like best.

This show met my expectations, then blew me away! I have never seen anything like it. The costumes and sets were beautiful, the talent was INCREDIBLE. So many "oh my gosh, oh my gosh" moments. I cannot describe just how amazing this show was. I don't know how the acrobats do it, or how the EIGHT motorcycles in the cage... More

It was not top quality, but the performers are very talented. There were several different types of acts including tight wire, skating, motorcycles, and tumbling. The costumes were a bit old and the music ended abruptly between acts.
