Two solid hours of "edge of your seat" stunts. The whole family was mesmerized by this performance. Best show on the Branson strip I've seen.

the acrobats were great!! very fun and lively show. I would have rated higher but the theater is showing its age. Seats were uncomfortable and there was no heat running, it was cold outside and in. Parking lot needs repaving and dead limps laying in parking lot. Acrobats were GREAT...
