    So turns out both Ka AND Mystere will not be showing January 17th, the day I have family in town and they want to do the good ole buffet and show somewhere, not necessarily the same place.

    So what is the general consensus for the next couple of show recommendations for Vegas newbies after Ka and Mystere? My aunt and uncle want to see acrobatic feats and don't understand the nuances of English that much so no comedy recommendations.

    I was leaning towards Zarkana next. We are looking for low to moderately priced shows if we can help it.

    Thanks for any insight!!

    I would suggest O. Lots of acrobatic diving. Language is not an issue for that show

    Agree with recommendation for Le Reve, but this will be a more expensive show. With Zarkana you should be able to find more deals for this show to keep the prices in the range that your looking for.

    Before I read your restrictions, my first thought was "Blue Man Group".

    However, I would now change my recommendation to Zarkana.

    I saw Zarkana for the first time six months ago. Hated it. Saw it last month, really liked it. Whether it was due to the slightly revamped show or not I'm not sure. My first seats were via MyVegas at in the aisle, left field near the foul pole. Second trip were comped by VIP services, center section, nine rows back and after a nice dinner.

    This is a very acrobatic show, minus of course the sand painter and juggler.

    Thanks for the replies everyone!!

    Yeah I have heard good things abotu La Reve but the price/potential deals of Zarkana are really enticing. Has anyone every tried getting Zarkana tickets from Tix4Tonight? Or even La Reve?

    Everyone has different tastes, but I will say, I'd rather pay full price for something I like, than half price for something I don't. My last stay at Aria, I had comp tix to Zarkana...I ended up declining them. Now, that is just me, as I know there are plenty of others who love Zarkana. To me LE Reve is easily worth double the price. My suggestion is to view some youtube videos of both, and any other shows you may be interested in and see what peaks your interest. For Cirque Du Soliel shows, you can see official video trailers for all their shows, on the Cirque website.

    Le Reve is PHENOMENAL. It's worth the extra few dollars - cheaper and BETTER than "O" though. It's one we're itching to see again.

    Piggylane, saw it about six months ago, too, and I wasn't thrilled by it. When I saw it, they had taken out the magician character who revisits the theater; a character I didn't know about until I saw the souvenir program. I am thinking that I will see it again with a MyVegas reward...especially if you think it is better now and since I am staying at Aria. The sand painter is a very odd thing to have in a Cirque show, don't you think?

    +1 Le Reve Took my wife(then fiance) for her first trip to Vegas. BLOWN AWAY! It was not my first trip but first show, and It was really cool. Dont be afraid to sit up front in the "Splash Zone" . We had mabey a couple drops of water hit us, and thought they were great seats!

    Thank you everyone for the replies!

    Ended up booking Zarkana B level seats for about $85 a pop. Not bad imo. Got section 203 near the front of the section. Thought being too upclose would be 'too much' at once. Hopefully this works out. Assuming chances of changing or upgrading seats are slim? Does it matter if I'm MLife Gold?
