"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 wasn't expecting all the performers to be kids - a little like America's Got Talent"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 16, 2018 NEW
To my surprise, all the performers appeared to be teenagers. They are truly talented as they each have mastered multiple types of performance, such as juggling, foot juggling, unicycle, contortion, plate spinning etc. etc. The performance reminded me a little bit of an extended America's Got Talent episode with one set of performers (show ran about 2 hours). Some performances were truly amazing while others were just so-so. By the end of the show, I was ready for it to be done.

Our family went to the later show and spent two hours with the Chinese performers leaving us completely entertained. The family highly recommends this show for everyone regardless of age or sex. You will not believe they can pull some of these stunts off. Truly amazing feats of balance and skill. These young athletes will keep you entertained.
