It's important to take into consideration the actual demographic this performance is aimed at. The adults complaining about the acting and fight scenes must acknowledge that children are watching. There are many topical references to keep parents entertained.
If I could give 0 stars, I would. This was serious some of the worst acting I've ever seen; it was worse than a middle school drama performance. The characters were so bad that I couldn't even cheer for them. I WANTED the witch to win. My husband and I nearly walked out, but some of the "fighting" is done near the exit, by the seats. We stuck it out, but it was a huge waste of time.
It's honestly been a while since the last time I went to this stunt show. I remember it was a few years ago. It was really cool, especially since I was younger I saw things differently. At the time, I was really intrigued after the show, I thought it was really cool! Especially when Sinbad gets into the audience area!
As a child, I can remember the theatre area being a little loud, even some of the sound effects startled me a bit.
If you are planning on coming to Universal, I would keep in mind that this show is a bit long... However, the last time I rode this ride was a long time ago... Technology has changed, new rides are out... I think you know where I'm getting at.
I would advise you to note that this shouldn't be the first thing on your to-do list... of course if you have already done everything in the park then sure go for it!
This stunt show is pretty cheesy. It has some entertaining pyrotechnic elements, but overall it is a disappointing show.
When I visited this attraction years ago, pre-Harry Potter, my son age 7 and daughter age 5 loved this show. It has action, comedy, acrobatics, sword fighting, and fire. They were delighted with the "funny guy" and my daughter thought the princess in her harem costume was beautiful. I recently returned to this show with my daughter, now 20, who left the show to ride Dragon Challenge again. The show has not changed much except for a few modern references. If you want to sit down and rest for a while and don't mind bleacher seats with no backs, or if you have young kids, this is a good stop for you. If not, and your time is limited, you may want to pass on this attraction.
