This show is a visual feast for the eyes entertaining our family of four including our 13yr and 11yr old daughters. My youngest is a competitive swimmer and now wants to do diving after seeing this show, the performers are such talented athletes and since seeing the show I have been you tubing it to see behind the scenes how they do it, as it's just so amazing! If you want to be picky the story line is a little weak and the motorcycles are a little out of context but good on them for trying to weave it into the storyline, I was so into the stunts, costumes and captivated by the changing stage that they could make up any storyline and the show would be amazing! You must see this show! We did a day trip from Hong Kong to see it and we would have been crazy to be so close and not make the effort to travel 1 hour to watch it! Go see it you won't be disappointed we stumbled across it at the sightseeing desk at our hotel we hadn't heard of it so we feel lucky we went, I don't want to oversell it but it really is that good!!! IF YOU ARE STAYING IN HONG KONG - Do a day trip to Macau 1 hour on the turbo jet each way and make sure you see the House of Dancing Water it's reasonably expensive $600 NZD for our family but would go again in a heartbeat. Don't leave Hong Kong without seeing it!!!! The Venetian is also amazing, having been to Vegas this is bigger than Vegas with 3 gondola canals and the shopping is also good at the Venetian. We had a crazy gondola ride with an Italian guy, he had locals following him (groupies) he was funny and entertaining wish I could list his name he had us all laughing and was a fantastic singer singing frozen 'let it go' for our daughters. Have fun! Visited May 2015

I choose the seat A-2nd to front row and doesn't even bother to get wet. Surely fantastic show worth it!

To call something 'unique' may be hackneyed and overused, but House of Dancing Water is unique. That is, like nothing else.A fast paced imaginative theatre experience with a stage is a deep circular pool of water. the actors and actresses are stunningly talented athletes, the lighting and music are remarkable and laced with some humor and even a mind-blowing motor cycle routine.Choose VIP, A, B or C seats. For us, B seats were fine

we saw this show during its premier back in 2009 and returned for another view. Still spectacular and entertaining with the divers jumping from high grounds into small pools appearing on the stage from time to time. The coordination is amazing as any timing errors will result in divers hitting solid ground. We were thrilled with the perfect executions.Stay away from the seats near the stage or bring towels.The show is at par with many of the Vegas shows and has to be the top attraction in Macau.It is still drawing huge crowds after so many years.Not to be missed.
