A NEW multi-million-dollar ski show jam-packed with spectacular stunts is set to wow the crowds at Sea World on the Gold Coast these Easter school holidays.
The Village Roadshow theme park has partnered with Australia’s leading stunt crew, Showtime FMX to bring the Thunder Lake Stunt Show to life.
The new show includes some of the best water-ski, jet-ski and BMX performers in the country and will feature world-class stunts, action and comedy on Sea World’s iconic ski lake.

Village Roadshow Theme Parks General Manager of Marketing Renee Soutar said the fast paced show will take guests on a wild ride.
“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,” Ms Soutar said.
“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.
“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 started his career in the stunt industry working in Sea World’s Ski Show in the 1990’s and said his team is excited to be bringing this show to life.
“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,” Mr Reid said.
Final rehearsals are underway for the show which will run twice daily from Monday, April 1.
