“Must See Show”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

The show was a lot of fun, something we had never seen before. My 5 and 2 year old thought the clown was hilarious!

“Fun and entertaining”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

This was a good show, funny and well designed. Some of the stunts are really spectacular and we had a great time. The show lasted almost two hours so there was some fatigue for our 2.5 old but overall everyone in the family enjoyed it. We mostly liked the first part with the water sport tricks. Recommended if you are around the Dells.

“We like it!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Very nice water show, liked the juggling act. Love the classic water-ski pyramid. The jumps (We didn't really dig the gymnast.)

“Awesome family entertainment.”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is a fantastic show. If you have tickets, don't miss the EVENING show! There are things in the evening show that you can't see in the afternoon show, plus those summer evenings are too glorious. Don't worry about bugs - there were none. After the spectacular water skiing - that it WAS spectacular, they had a juggler and an endearing little old comedian guy. Anywhere else, people might have booed him, because he didn't always get his routine perfect, but this wonderful family audience gave him the respect his years of experience deserved, and he was sweet and funny and I was so happy that people appreciated him. It was heartwarming to see. And I'll never forget him. So GO SEE IT!
