Features: Cirque Shanghai: Dragon's Thunder Chicago is a family friendly show full of performers and acrobats that hail directly from China. With acts like the Wheel of Death, Bike Balances and even a motorcycle troupe, everyone will be entertained from start to finish.

Why We Go: Cirque Shanghai: Dragon's Thunder Chicago is a family friendly show that has up to 3 showings a day on given days of the week.

  • Short and Sweet: It's hard to sit through a show that's more than two hours long when you're with the whole family and have so much more of the city to explore, but the Cirque Shanghai: Dragon’s Thunder is only 75 minutes long. That makes it the perfect length and packed with entertainment!
  • Not Too Pricey: Since the Cirque Shanghai: Dragon’s Thunder Chicago is a extremely entertaining, it's a show that you're going to want to take the whole family to, which can get pricey! Luckily, even the regular adult tickets don't get over $30 a piece.
  • Seating Options: There are several places to watch the Cirque Shanghai: Dragon’s Thunder Chicago. You can sit on the main floor or in the Emperor's Court. If that's not enough diversity for you, you can packages that include food, a ferris wheel voucher and/or a boat cruise.

Inside Knowledge: If you get the Navy Pier Fun Package, you'll not only get a chance to see the show, a half hour boat cruise and a ferris wheel ride, but it's all for less than $30 a person!

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Go at Night: After the last show of the night on Wednesdays and Saturdays, there's a fireworks show at the Navy Pier. 
  • Do Take the Family: Cirque Shanghai: Dragon’s Thunder is one of the best family friendly Chicago shows.
  • Don't Drink Too Much: The show is only 75 minutes long, but with such a short show time, there's no intermission! Don't drink too much or you'll miss a lot of action while you're gone for a bathroom break!
  • Don't Miss Your Chance: Cirque Shanghai: Dragon’s Thunder Chicago is only here for the summer, so don't put off seeing it until next time, because there might not be a next time!
