Maybe it was returning as an adult or maybe it was because it was early in the season, but I really wasn't impressed. The boat portion was good - a lot of falls, but the rest of the show I could have skipped and not felt bad. There was a magician/entertainer/whatever you want to call him who's big trick was...

The last time I saw the Tommy Bartlett Show was in the 1960's. I loved it then and I loved now. The water skiers were thrilling to watch, especially the pyramid performers and the barefoot skiers.

Much more than just an excellent water ski show. It is well worth the visit. There are comedians and magicians who are quite talented. We laughed so hard,- well we still are chuckling. It is a Dells original tradition and a must-see part of the Dells experience.

This year was an improvement from the last couple years. They have changed the theme (movie theme) and added a new show. (Dirt Bikes). It is always fun to watch the show get better every year.

My family and I saw this show on a beautiful hot afternoon. We all enjoyed it very much. Both halves of the show were well executed. I believe we received good value for the price of admission.
