I had seen this show over 18 months ago and when I saw it the first time I would have rated it a 4 or 5 - now it just gets a 3. There previously was a cast of about 25 people now down to 2 and I am sure previously it went for between 45-60 minutes this time less... More

I found this short show to be highly entertaining. It's a great place to take children. It lasts for approximately 40 minutes. The show has English subtitles and a lot of the songs are in English so it is easy to follow the story line. If you set in the first couple of rows you might get sprayed with water.

I had very low expectations when a local colleague said 'let's take the clients to see the water show' at OCT. I was expecting the fountains outside the Bellagio in Vegas or the ones in Burj Lake in Dubai Mall. This was completely different - there was a storyline, choreography, clowns for the kids and an environmental story all tied... More

The story in the background runs in Mandarin. The show starts with humour and moves on to a serious subject of environment protection. I could see locals enjoying the show fully. However, for international travelers that do not understand mandarin and have been to laser and water shows elsewhere in the world like in Sentosa, Singapore (Wings of time), this... More

Me and couple of friends went to check this out and we loved it! The production is mind-blowing: dancers, lights, water and fireworks - all combined in a nice story. It is a bit childish at moments but still the effects can be enjoyed by all ages. I warmly recommend for anyone to see it, but especially if you have... More

Very creative use of water, fire and light. No need to buy VIP seats, English "subtitles" explain the inconsequential storyline. Show is rather short, 40 min only.
