Based on the Kevin Coster film, "Waterworld," this 15-minute stunt epic is the go-to example whenever anyone wants to illustrate how a theme park attraction can far exceed the quality of its source material.

Waterworld, the film, may have been a bomb, but Waterworld, the stunt show, is consistently rated by Theme Park Insider readers among the best live shows in the theme park business.

Set in a world where the polar ice caps have melted, covering the continents in sea water, our hero Helen has discovered dry land. But the evil Smokers are after her and the secret of dry land's location. It's up the Mariner to save Helen, and fight off the Smokers.

Meanwhile, stunt performers dangle from high above the stage, plunge into the water and stuff blows up all over the place. And, oh yeah, keep your eyes open for the plane.
