Sea World’s newest multi-million-dollar ski show officially opens

Sea World’s newest multi-million-dollar ski show officially opens
April 1, 2019

Sea World’s newest ski show, Thunder Lake Stunt Show has been launched today, featuring Australia’s leading stunt crew, Showtime FMX and offering some of the best water-ski, jet-ski and BMX performers in the country.

Featuring world-class stunts, action and comedy on the theme park's central ski lake, Village Roadshow Theme Parks General Manager of Marketing Renee Soutar, said the Thunder Lake Stunt Show is fast paced, visually spectacular show featuring non-stop action to take guests on a wild ride on water and land.

Soutar advised “the Thunder Lake Stunt Show centres around the Sun State All Stars and the Bay City River Rats with the two rival groups colliding in an epic showdown of extreme stunts and action.

“We have worked closely with Showtime FMX on the production of this new show and have recruited some of Australia’s best stunt performers and designed custom-built vehicles such as the floating Truck which will be sure to have our guests in awe.

“In addition to the jaw-dropping stunts, the Thunder Lake Stunt Show also features a very funny storyline with one of our characters sure to have the audience in stitches throughout the show.

“With the show featuring some of the iconic water-ski stunts Sea World was known for in its formative years, there is a feeling of nostalgia which will be sure to entertain Sea guests.”

Showtime FMX Director Gary Reid, who started his career in the stunt industry working in Sea World’s Ski Show in the 1990’s, said his team is excited to be bringing this show to life.

Reid added “this is a dream come true for our athletes and we can’t wait to get out on the lake and perform some of the most insane stunts and action for Sea World guests.”

The Thunder Lake Stunt Show will run twice daily at Sea World.
