new Circus show in China

Franco Dragone‘s next project is, no surprise, another water show.

A Film Park including his new “Han Show” are both scheduled to open December 2014 in Wuhan, China.

The preview looks GREAT. :-)

The audience chairs will move during the performance.

 

80 to 85 percent of the cast will be Chinese from disciplines like diving, gymnastics, synchronized swimming and ballet.

Cirque du Soleil stopped their shows in Japan and Macao. But Dragone’s House of Dancing Water has been going strong in Macao since 2010.

Expedition Idaho Adventure Race

7-days of continuous physical and mental challenge, almost no sleep, bad food, questionable water. Who invented this sport? :-)

To stagger the start of Expedition Idaho, Race Director Dave Adlard, invented a unique prologue.

Teams had to climb the toughest waterslide, starting over if anyone slipped.

If successful, they then took a victory laprunning the Lazy River. Backwards. :-)

This is even tougher than it looks.

Gymnastics sport scientist Jeni McNeal is running this race.

Good luck.

1,000-foot long SLIP-AND-SLIDE

On Saturday, thousands of Salt Lake residents of all ages slid down a 1,000-foot long and 22-foot wide water slide down the city’s Main Street. The plastic slide sits on a layer of foam and ends in a 75-foot long pool with 3-foot deep waters.

Tickets for the Salt Lake City event started from $15 for single slides, increasing to $25 for triple slides and $35 for unlimited access.

Proceeds went towards Ronald McDonald House and the Utah Aids Foundation. …
