These people know how to put on a show... It's crazy how high they jump and flip and tumble... Lots of talent and wasn't too crowded. Our kids enjoyed it and with no dialog in the show you don't have to worry about being offended or having to explain something to your children.

My girlfriend and I went to this show with all of her kids (ages 11 - 22) and we all loved it! The performers exhibited amazing feats of balance, using themselves as well as a variety of props. The show was accompanied by music that was in sync with the action on stage, from traditional-sounding Chinese orchestrations to Western Classical... More

Saw your 3pm show today, Sunday 28 Jun 2015. Your troupe is amazing. The ladies are beautiful. The men very fit and daring. The children were over the top! I feel like I have to apologize that the audience was not so enthusiastic at first. A lady actually tapped me on the shoulder and asked me not to clap so... More

Well worth the $35 tickets!! A fast-paced, exceptionally artistic, powerfully emotional, and phenomenally impressive show. Lights, sound, staging, costumes, were Broadway-quality. The physical agility, strength, and flexibility of the acrobats was incredible! This would be one of two shows we saw (the other being the Presley's) that we would DEFINITELY recommend to family and friends.

The Amazing Acrobats of Shanghai is very entertaining. There is a variety of acts. They do some really difficult stunts. The 3 motorcycle performers are outstanding. They all ride together in a metal sphere. Some acts were high in the air and the costumes were beautiful.

This show is very cool and awesome, the acrobats are so awesome, they played the hats, jumping through the hoops, balancing on each other, hanging and balance did great job.
