The House of Dancing Water

City of Dreams Macau

The Basics

House of the Dancing Water is performed in a 270-degree theater, where the first four rows of certain zones are considered splash seats. The show is completely nonverbal. Visitors can choose between two showtimes on most evenings, and tickets are divided into four categories based on their view of the stage. The performance tells the story of Coloane, a fisherman who is transported to a world of princesses, pirates, and an evil stepmother.

This show is truly spectacular from beginning to end. The talent is superior. Loved every minute of it. However, it is not easy to find. 1. Information both at the TurboJet Ferry terminal is worthless. Speaks English badly and just says, "Take a bus across the street." There are 20 buses across the street. The show auditorium is part of the City of Dreams Mall and the Grand Hyatt Macau (a well kept secret). And once you get there you must walk for blocks through high-end shops and/or casino. Allow 30 minutes to find the auditorium. Buying tickets online on the House of Dancing Water web site is impossible. I tried 15 times failing each time, first running out of time - timed out after 10 min. Finally with enough practice, I got faster in choosing seats and entering passport number, credit card number, etc., etc, etc, Then it wouldn't take my credit card! So I got tickets on Viator, took my voucher to the box office ahead of time, and they gave the whatever tickets were available at the time after searching and searching and searching for my name in their records. I should have just waited and purchased at the box office.
