Amazing Vintage Photos of Superheroes Water Ski Shows at Sea World From the Late 1970s

“ZAP! POW! WOW! Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman and all your favorite comic book heroes come to life in Florida’s best water ski show.”

Superhero fans nationwide born in the early 1970s remember the comic book ad showing Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Robin… water skiing. Far fewer, however, actually made it to Ohio or Florida to see the actual show at Sea World, which ran from 1976 to 1979.

After the 1960’s Batman and before the Legends of the Superheroes in 1979 Sea World put on a ski show staring the live action Super Friends titled Salute to the Superheroes Water Ski Show presented by Mercury Motors. During this show it was like watching the 60’s Batman show with the “POW, BIFF, BANG” during the fight scenes, ski stunt shows with the Bat-Boat, and Batman’s main bad guys in the mix.

  1. I was lucky enough to be selected to ride the Bat Boat during this show as a kid! I have some photos of me on the Bat Boat with Batman and Robin! Good memories!
