Honestly while they had some good acrobats my 10 year old fell asleep during the show it was the 3pm so not late for her to be tired. I Have seen the Acrobats of China and felt is was much better.

"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!

The acrobats were very talented, the show moved along at a nice pace and the costumes were bright and colorful. Of the six shows I saw while in Branson this was in my top two along with Samson.

My husband heard from others that this was a great Branson show, but I wasn't sure I would like it without all the singing etc, of a major Branson show. Whatsmore, my husband picked seats in the front row. While we missed the full pictorial you get from sitting back futher, we were able to see all details, faces, costumes up close. Performers seem mostly to be youth, teens, early twenties and aare presented wiwth a series of many different type of acrobatic acts which are very unusual and ties to Chinese history. My expression throughout the show was "Oh My God" over and over and a feared for their safety. Many acts were very beautiful as well as thrilling. The music was very pleasant and soothing which was necessary as the audience nerves weree stressed. An experience which should not be missed.
