    I'm trying to decide between KA and Zarkana for my upcoming trip. I know there's been a couple posts on this in the past, and most people chose KA over Zarkana. Based on this, I redeemed (MyVegas) two tix for KA a couple months ago, in hopes that the final battle scene would be reintroduced to the show. Given that my trip is now less than a week out, it appears that won't be the case. Which show should I pick between the two, given that KA lacks what most consider to be it's best act?

    Ka was a snooze fest even before the changes. I don't understand the hate for Zarkana.

    I hated Zarcana. Slept through some of KA but the stage alone is worth seeing.

    These are my exact feelings on these two shows! If you stuck with only these two choices, go with Ka.

    I thought the only really good act in Zarkana was the girl that juggled the tennis balls against the ground and inside boxes. KA is FAR more interesting and extravagant. Zarkana looked to me like the training ground for the rookies. The trapeze act was completely pedestrian.

    I thought Zarkana was basically just a series of stunts pulled from various other Cirque shows. It is still impressive and I don't regret the money spent. The stage in Ka is pretty incredible and it was rare (for Cirque) in the sense that it had a story I was able to follow.

    if I really had to choose, then Ka.

    My main requirement for a show for my visit later this month was 'anything but Cirque'. Too many of them and (imo) not enough broadway type (e.g. Jersey Boys) shows.

    Without the final scene, Ka should be cancelled entirely.

    I've never seen KA, but I thought Zarkana was VERY boring. I like Mystere and "O" so it isn't just a cirque thing.

    I think it just depends on personality and preference. I didnt like Ka, it was boring to me, but Im a very "out there" person and loved Zarkana.
    My attention span is pretty short though so maybe thats why I liked it better, because there was a break between scenes.
    Both have very good preformers.

    I saw both Zarkana and Ka during my August trip. Hate hate hated them both.

    I guess out of the two, I would give Ka the nod, since I actually fell asleep in Zarkana. Ugh.

    I say resell the tickets and pay for tickets to Absinthe
