With the announcement that California will reopen its economy fully on June 15, this is huge news for theme parks including Universal Studios Hollywood. This means that in three weeks, Universal’s theme parks could move even closer towards normal operations.
With that being said, this could bring back more employees, events, and more entertainment! Speaking of entertainment, we recently came across one very popular live extravaganza that has been rated Universal Hollywood’s number one show and is back to the park, WaterWorld.
Get ready to get wet again!
If you’ve ever sat in the first few rows while experiencing WaterWorld in Universal Studios Hollywood, then you know all about the ‘Soak Zone.’ This entertainment show debuted in Hollywood in 1995 and is based on the film Waterworld with Kevin Costner. This 20-minute stunt show is like Mad Max on water, as Universal states,
Experience WaterWorld – Universal Studios #1 rated show. Join an adventure that surges to life with jumping jet-skiers, perilous plunges, firefights, massive explosions, and an in-your-face plane crash you need to see to believe.
With new sets, a new cast, and all new action, WaterWorld is one show at Universal Studios Hollywood you just can’t miss!
There are approximately 168,500 pyrotechnic effects fired per year at WaterWorld, including giant fireballs rising 50 feet in the air. World champion jet skiers perform stunts for audience entertainment.
WaterWorld is Back
Recently, Universal fans were ecstatic to share on Instagram that Universal’s live show WaterWorld was back on the weekend. Denny or better known as @finding_denny caught an amazing clip of the show with amazing shots of pyrotechnic effects and crazy stunt performers plunging into the water on Saturday. He mentions that although the first show was on Friday, the current showtimes for Sat were 12 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. He states,
