    Water World ??

    So how did they come up from under of the water in the show at Universal??
    Did they have air tanks or something for the engines to run??
    Been a long time ...

    From theStudioTour.com: Mariner’s first entrance is on a jetski from under water – he starts at the top of a metal slide backstage and is released down the ramp on cue, around 8 feet under water, under the set wall and up to the surface just as air cannons produce a “water explosion”. The specially modified Jetskis used in the show are Kawasaki 550s, Kawasaki X2s and Kawasaki Supersports. They’ve been fitted with extra bilge pumps and have had the motors modified to cope with the heavy usage on WaterWorld. The numerous tires around the tank edges are to protect the sets (and jetskis and actors) from damage if targets are missed.

    Round nose yes! I found this on the theStudioTour.com site. Lots of info and pictures for the show, some with the water drained from the set. You can see the ramp leading to the underwater door.
