Fly high acrobatic monkeys!

The Lion King is one of the best stories in animation history, so the Festival of the Lion King is a definite must for any true fan of Disney.

The festival highlights the adult Simba, Pumba and Timon and all of their friends. The show also features a bit of help from the audience with different sounds for each animal.

The true sight to see is in the "monkey" acrobats that fly all over the theatre with the help of a trampoline. The athleticism is a true sight to see with the acrobats that flip and twist off the trampoline and land perfectly where they want to land, even on a high bar.
