When you're at the Dells you have to do 3 things: 1.) Upper Dells Boat Tour, 2.) Original Duck ride, 3.) Tommy Bartlett Show. I especially enjoy the last Tommy Bartlett show of the evening under complete darkness. I think it starts at about 8 or 8:30 p.m. It's really worth it. It's much, much more than just a water...

We only went because we had free tickets but the kids(6/8) enjoyed it more than I thought they would and they have even mentioned going this summer. Son loves the Rocket Boots!

We come to the dells every summer and never miss the Tommy Bartlett show! It is a can't miss in the dells. The show is great even the year when there wasn't water in Lake Delton. Fun for all ages! The show stays mostly the same with a little different story line but it is always good. Go to the... More

One of our must sees when in the Dells.Been going to the show since I was little. The water skies are so very talented and love going to last show of the day.

The show was really fun. There is quite a walk downhill to get to the stage and uphill on the way back which we didn't mind. The water skiers are so talented. The juggler guy "cant remember his name" but he had us laughing the entire time he was on stage.

The Tommy Bartlett Show is something you need to do once. The kids liked it and it changes from year to year. Just a bit overpriced IMHO.

The Tommy Bartlett show is a Dells original. The water skiers are always top notch. I don't recommend the show for people with small children as it is difficult to keep them still, but otherwise it should be on the to do list.

Good humor, bad jokes, great skiing, and a relaxing atmosphere made this a fun show to see! There isn't a bad seat in the house. They have to be making that delicious popcorn fresh as it was crunchy when we bought it.
