"Crazy kids!"
April, 2018 NEW
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!

This was hands down the best show we've seen in Branson, maybe even anywhere! Action packed from start to finish. So many different type of acts, each with insanely difficult and even death defying at times! We will definitely see this again, if you haven't seen it you need to before you leave Branson!

This was my favorite of all three shows my family attended this weekend. It had something for everyone. Acts included balancing acts, contortionists, aerial silk, aerial pole, unicycle, spinning plates, foot juggling, hand juggling, tumbling through hoops, balancing high atop stacked chairs, and even balancing glasses and other items on the edge of a sword held in the performer's mouth. This was a good value, especially since we used an available Groupon. A neighbor recommended the show to us, having seen it herself. A 15-minute intermission is provided, during which you may choose to buy a picture taken of you in front of a green screen upon your entrance. Performers greet the crowd in the lobby afterward and are happy to pose for photos with you for free. A gift shop is also available. The crowd is asked to join in the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of the second act, and the crowd is invited to applaud veterans. Still photography is available as long as you don't use flash. You are also asked to take still photography only and NOT video. The only negative I thought was that there were FAR too many breaks for the crowd to applaud, which stretched the show more than it should have. If the audience had been asked to applaud each act at the end of its performance, that would have worked far better, in my opinion. By the end of the show, my 8-year-old was getting a bit squirmy, although most of the acts fascinated him.
