Splash Zone?? More like Soak Zone!! Hydro-action Stunt Show at IoA
Written by Gareth H
At short notice to my long suffering wife, I decided to drag her, in 95 degree heat, to Islands of Adventure today.Tweet
Why? So we could check out the all new Hydro-Action Stunt Show, on the Lagoon.
We arrived at the lagoon with 15 minutes to go, every inch of the viewing area already packed with spectators.
We happened to stand just behind the Jurassic Park Discovery Center.
Now, signs everywhere were warning us that this was a splash zone, but being used to these signs at most parks we just though you mioght get a slight misting.
Anyway, the show started, a couple of fireworks went up and then out come 2 ski-boats towing (Can you guess?) a skier each. Great start. Over the jumps they went, a little flip and then a trip around the lagoon. Next came a couple of Jet-Skiers. Fantastic. Fast speeds, quick turns, BIG jumps betwwen wake creating boats. Very impressed.
The show continued, plently of drowned people watching, a few more fireworks and some spectacluar stunts and it was all over, way too quickly really.
Now, remember I mentioned my wife, Justine. Well she was complaining a little (Bless her) about being too hot, and how she wished she'd got wet. Well, as people were leaving we went up to the edge of the water and watched the jet-skier across the other side. Suddendly, he looked over at us and came over.
