June 06--Are you ready for some "Extreme" fun?

Then check out "Aerial Ice Extreme," the cool new show at California's Great America theme park in Santa Clara.

The ambitious production is a mix of ice skating, aerial acrobatics and theatrics. It features Aerial Ice, the high-flying troupe that competed on season eight of NBC-TV's "America's Got Talent."

Aerial Ice made quite a splash on "America's Got Talent." The troupe received solid reviews from judges Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mandel. Aerial Ice made it all the way to the quarterfinals of "America's Got Talent."

Aerial Ice combines adagio, dance, theater and circus aerial arts into its performances.

"Aerial Ice Extreme" continues through the season at Great America.

Performance times are 1:30, 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. daily, with additional 7:30 p.m. show on Friday and Saturday.
