This show has great potential but they need a new creative director. The show moves too slowly and there isn't enough fast paced action for today's crowds. They introduce the performers after every act like a dance recital. They need to stop that practice and introduce everybody at the end. Also, there are certain stunts that are exciting and awesome...

The watershow was very good. They are VERY TALENTED. One part however that I didn't like was the clown act part-- it was kind of corny. Also there it a little time between stunts, so it didn't keep my attention the whole time. The second part of the show was a stunt type part. My husband and son really liked... More

Very talented skiers! Quite cheeze tho. I thought they could have showed more stunts than they did. Good show to take children to.

Cheesy doesn't even begin to describe this show. The first half of the show consists entirely of water-skiers skiing back and forth in front of the stage to different movie themes. The second half is only marginally more interesting with some motorcycle stunts and juggling. This two hour show felt like it lasted four hours. My son said it was... More

This is an excellent family show for families with kids with good fun and like nothing else in the Dells area. Half of the show is skiing and half is a stage show. The skiers are excellent and make some tough tricks and stunts look easy. The MC keeps things moving. All seats are good and when we went, bugs... More

Evening experience. Neat show, laughs, applause, talent, variety. Great for all ages. No seat is bad. No bugs. Hike to the seated area for those with ambulation challenges so prepare to take breaks if needed. Ski show is a ski show, but still neat to see.

This show just keeps getting better and better. I saw this show about 28 years ago when I was a kid and I loved it then. It has improved and my kids thought it was amazing. This is a must see when you're in the Dells. It's scheduled twice a day, every day!

I have been to the Tommy Bartlett show 3x in my 62 year life, this was the first time I came at night. The show was top rate, amazing in fact and the vendors selling drinks, popcorn & cotton candy were a welcomed addition. It is hard to fault a thing with the show, which included many, many things that... More

Our kids enjoyed it. As an adult expect to be mildly entertained. It's probably worth seeing once as some of the stunts could not be pulled off by the above average skier.

The water show was really good. Stunts that we're themed and unusual. I thought the second half would be similar. Wrong! No water involved in second act. The acts were good, but we're a letdown when I was wanting more water action.
