Come See Us at Seaworld

There's nothing about this that isn't completely awesome. I saw some pretty great waterski shows as a kid (usually at Cypress Gardens) but nothing with actual superheroes. My loss.

Completely awesome update: check out the Noblemania blog for TONS of further info and photos about this ski show (and other cool stuff). 

Sea World, Orlando, Florida
mid 1970s

With 2 Batmen! Must be a high powered boat to pull all those skis.

I think that's Batman and Batgirl. Oh, the showmen of Florida worked out how to pull a bunch of people pretty much as soon as boat motors became available.

Cypress Gardens routines. From clowns and ballerinas to super heroes. Same-same.

I remember a pirate routine.

Why have I never seen a ski show? I'm sorely disappointed in my lack of skiing in my life.

Aw, you were born too late.

My son who just turned 5 and is obsessed with Batman, Spider-man et al. would LOVE to see that.

I bet!

That is freakin' sweet! I've never seen a water ski show and now I never will. How could anything live up to what I now know is possible? It can't.

If you ever get the chance, you have to see one regardless. Even if it's not quite the perfection featured here.

I was like "what? it's a water ski pyramid. pretty cool, but we've all seen pictures of OH SHIT IT'S THE SUPERFRIENDS!"

downtown guy said...

Which pretty much makes it 100x more kickass.
