"Crazy kids!"
April, 2018
Well, the acrobats are overall very young, but very skilled. My two teenagers realy enjoyed the energy of the show, and we did too. Two hours in length, you get great value. I went in thinking the show would be a bit silly but it was really well done. Kind of reminded me of street performers that were very good. Not totally polished which made the show even more enjoyable. I also liked the pledge of allegiance in the middle. Great touch!

I usually don't care for shows of this type but my daughter insisted we go and see it. I must say, I was very impressed. The performers work so hard to entertain you; you can't help but fall in love with them. I hope that each and every one of those performers enjoys many years of success. They deserve it. And yes, I will go and see it again the next time I am in Branson. Thank you for a wonderful show!

"Acrobats?"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed May 15, 2018 NEW
This show was not very exciting. Most of the acts are tumbling and flips. The Plate balancing was good and the act where two people were ariel was good. Everthing else was mild, repetitive and boring. Only need to see this once if at all. There were swings above so maybe something with them would improve the acts.

Although the show was lightly attended, the young people put on a great show for us with a lot of gymnastic performances. I felt like they were auditioning for the big time as many seemed fairly young and a couple of the "stunts" didn't work out as they wanted but good for them to go back and do them again for us. The audience always appreciated this! A reasonable price for a reasonable show.
