This was an entertaining water show that included a stage show of unicyling, juggling, motorcycles in a ball, humor, acrobatics, etc. The skiers were very athletic, daring, brave, and good. Going at night allowed the viewers to see a lighted glider. A show worth seeing.

90 minute show that kept us on the edge of seat the whole time. Half of the show is on water and the rest on stage. Don't miss the show,

We had a coupon from a local coupon book for 20% off general admission for our family of 3. We paid $43 for an hour and a half show. Great family activity!

I remembered going here on family vacations when I was a little girl. We went to the 8:30 show and it was a good time. Little chilly but still fun. Our 19 month old really enjoyed it. Aqua the Clown is still there too! A must do if your in the Dells.

We took our 5 grandkids there and had a great time. Night show is better with the laser lights.A little pricy but very good show.

Admission was free through Kalahari resort, so I can't evaluate value. The 'Salute to Movies' aspect of the show was amusing, but so insignificant I think they could just do the show without it, and they'd be fine. Our 4 and 6 year olds loved watching Aqua the Clown. They weren't as impressed with the skiing tricks, but the adults... More

We both enjoyed the show from beginning to end. This is a show that I would keep coming back to see, as it changes some of their stage acts and ski routines. Great for the kids too.

We had never been to a waterski show, so neither the hubbs nor myself knew what to expect. The path leading to the water was a bit steep, but filled with picture cases. It was interesting to learn about Tommy Bartlett and the history at the Dells. We went to the 830p show and it was great. I was afraid... More

While I've seen this show Agee times over the years, my kids had no idea what it was. They loved the skiers, motorcycles, acrobats and dancing waters. Their favorite act was a juggler. We enjoyed seeing a show very similar to the one we grew up with.

We visited 8/22/15 for the evening show. First, if you want good seats on a Saturday night show, plan on arriving at least an hour early. We were fortunate enough to have front row section C seats, but a little higher up in D would have been even better for the second half of the show. The first part is... More
