Best Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas 14 and 11 yo boys?

Getting mixed feedback on which show to take them to!!!

More info.....
They have never seen a Cirque show.
DH and I have seen Love.
11 year old hated Lion King, but loved Spiderman on B'way (go figure) - he likes action!
11 year old does like Michael Jackson.
14 year is easier to please!! He likes everything!

Also which Magic Show is good?? - I've read a lot of them are cheezy!!!

We have 2 nights for 2 shows!!!!

Thanks!!!

Not necessarily my favorite, but for 11 and 14 year old boys, especially the 11 year old you describe?

KA, without a doubt!

Mystere is great for artistic types (like me) but not for 11 or 14 year old boys hung up on action! I think much of Mystere would leave them rolling their eyes,

La Reve is great - and the ladies in swimsuits will keep the boys attention - same as O at Bellagio.

There are a number of magic shows - and check out the discount ticket places along the strip for all show tix.

I don't think the Magic shows are particularly cheesy - especially if they have Tigers - as does Rick Thomas - if I remember his name correctly.

If Ka won't work - I know La Reve is in a smaller room so the views might be better.

I loved O but I can't imagine my son when he was 11 or 14 enjoying any of the Cirque shows. He would have preferred the magic shows, no matter how cheesy.

My daughter saw Ka, and I think O when she was 10-15. She thought they were great.

Was just checking and Rick Thomas lost his long time - beautiful big White Tiger - but he is returning with a show which I am guessing should still have a big cat as it was quite a "hobby" of his.

Here is a list of some of the Magic shows now running - and Mike Hammer - downtown - 4 Queens - was very funny and quite reasonable - as was their prime rib dinner. You could combine that with giving the kids a treat - watching the overhead lazer show on Fremont St - walking around, etc.

Mac Brown - could be considered a little cheesy - but I still thought he was funny and it's a fairly short show - a matinee. Good bargain if you check the discount tix places - such as below - the adds, and so forth.

The King of Magic is still probably David Copperfield.

Also think kids - big and small - would like V - The Ultimate Variety Show.

Again - check around for the various deals/discount tix. There is at least one other discount ticket "chain". see: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g4...w.Tickets.html
