    Fuzzy Memories with Anders

    ok, so this has bothered me for a long time, and I figure if anyone would have an answer, the members of MiceChat would.

    Ok, so growing up, we went to various theme parks, mainly DL and WDW, but a few others. I have memories of there being some kind of boat show, boat race thing in something like the lake at Epcot. I would have thought I'd be imagining it, since I've never found anything to verify this, but my mom has the same memory, but neither of us can think of when or where it was, my sister thinks we're both nuts. I also remember a stunt show with cars, (car going down a subway enterence, etc.) I'm sure that was either Universal Studios or MGM, but don't remember that either.

    Anyways, if anyone knows of anything similar to what I may be remembering, please post it here.

    Sea World has certainly presented many an awesome boat and ski show.

    EPCOT's Surprise In the Skies show (from the early 90's may be what you're thinking of, Anders. That show was loaded with everything under the sun - bosts, planes, fireworks and everything else under the sun. No wonder you liked it.

    Here's a 1991 press release:

    Surprise in the Skies
    Epcot

    "Color takes flight and wrap a rainbow around World Showcase in this new daytime show at Epcot Center that boasts the world's largest daytime fireworks display. http://allearsnet.com/tp/ep/e_sky1.htm encirle the park's lagoon and soar above the park in the extravaganza.
    Explosive rainbow colors fill the daytime sky at Epcot Center during presentations of "Surprise in the Skies" each Saturday through Wednesday. Vivid fireworks in reds, blues and greens announce a show featuring boats with multi-colored flags which pull six colorful delta-wing kits into the air, where they are joined by paraplanes flying the colors of Epcot Center's World Showcase nations.
    Patriotic music introduces a red, white and blue parapale and similarly colored pyrotechnics. The squadron of paraplanes joins in the display of red, white and blue colors." (WDW 20th Anniversary News Press Releases, 1991)

    hmm, maybe it was Surprise in the Skies, I would have thought it would have been more in the 80's since that was during my earliest visits to WDW. We took two trips to WDW during which it could have been. They were definitely before 1992, so who knows, any other possibilites out there? If it's Sea World, it would have to be in San Diego, since we never went to the one in Orlando.

    San Diego SeaWorld definitely had a boat race/stunt show in the 70's and 80's. They changed it to a jetski show in the 90's, but it was all boats and waterskiiers before that. It was AWEOME! My favorite thing there (well, besides the Starkist Water Show that is).

    Re: Fuzzy Memories with Anders

    Sounds like they had to cater to the pseudo-hip DCA demographic. When boats don't cut it anymore, bring out the Jetskis!!!

    This seems to fly in the face of those who claim Sea World was always an animal park and was only ruined recently when they decided to add more rides/attractions. Does anyone have a video of this show?

    There are people who say that?????? That's such b.s.!!!! I was born and partly grew up in San Diego, and thus went to SeaWorld a LOT as a kid. You know the kids playgroud there? Its been there since at least the late 70's. The Starkist water show was one of the big draws back then too. I know the boat show was a popular attraction too. SeaWorld has ALWAYS had plenty of non-animal attractions.

    No video, but I'm pretty sure I have some old photos somewhere. I'll try and see if I can find them.
