Fantastic water show for adults and children. Reserved seating is the way to go, plenty of covering in case it rains.

Be sure to take a jacket or hoodie. It was very cool than night. There wasn't anything I disliked about the Tommy Bartlett Show. All of the acts and stunts were awesome....

The waterskiing show was great; especially at night. The parasailing grand finale was impressive, however...why was there a variety show "second half"? It was confusing and unnecessary. This is a waterskiing show, right? I was embarrassed for these second rate, "America's Got Talent" acts.

I remember watching this show years ago as a young child and I was pleased to see that it's still holding strong in entertainment value. My family all agreed that this by far was the highlight of our vacation. It had a mixture of entertainment above just skiers and water sports. As usual in the Dells they hit you up... More

We went to the 8:30 show which was almost dark when we arrived. We could still see the great waterski show but couldn't help wondering if was better during the 4:30 show. The boats and skiing were only the on during the first half of the show and the rest of the show was more misc talent. We really enjoyed... More

Tommy Bartlett show has a water show and land show...It's a must in the Dells at least once. The night show is the best with lights on the water skiers and boats.

You can't come to the Dells without seeing the Tommy Bartlett show!! I think our family has probably seen the show 5 times now. Although the show doesn't change much, it's still amazing to see the skill of the skier's. We'll be back next time....

Loved this, fun and energetic show on water. Went at night time show and it was worth every penny! Will go back again in a couple of years to see if it's changed.

If you haven't seen a ski show before, this is a great example. If you have, you may want to try elsewhere for entertainment. The ski show has some very interesting acts to it. The costumes are nice. The jet board is pretty cool. The water show takes about 45 minutes. The second half after intermission is about variety acts.... More

We enjoyed the first half ski show part better, but there could've been more skiers. The second half included a "magician" and his son, who were entertaining, a death globe dirt bike duo and a trio who did gymnastics type tricks. We attended the 4:30 show on a Tuesday. It was not crowded at all.
