Brickbeard’s Watersports Stunt Show Debuts at LEGOLAND Florida (Photos, Video)

Hi everyone!

The new Brickbeard’s Watersports Stunt Show debuted this week at LEGOLAND Florida. We previewed it and I was really impressed with the various stunts and talented performers! The show includes a flyboard, a new LEGO female pirate and the ski pyramid that hearkens back to the old Cypress Garden days. Cypress Gardens played a major role in the earliest days of ski shows here before LEGOLAND moved into the location. There is a lot of history that LEGOLAND embraces – and LEGOLAND Florida is now celebrating 10 years!

LEGOLAND says of Brickbeard’s Watersports Stunt Show,  Ahoy! Watch Brickbeard’s buccaneer recruits pass swashbuckling skill tests on the high seas at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort! Does it have pirates? Yes. Does it have more speed? Double yes. Does it have higher jumps? For sure, yes. Oh, and did we mention a totally-awesome-brand-new-super-cool flyboard (that’s basically a skateboard that flies ABOVE the water)?! We DEFINITELY have that.

First, here is our video of the show.


We walked into the stadium, which currently is operating in a socially distanced way. 

The show lasted for almost a half hour.

There were two pirates hosting the show.

Captain Brickbeard steps off a raft.

This was my favorite part of the show!  Legoland says of the flyboard, This awesome flying board helps the bravest of pirate recruits FLY up to 72 ft in the air! (Whooaaa, how?) The board (that is more like a hoverboard) is connected by a long hose to a watercraft (like a jet ski) where water is forced, under pressure, up to the recruit’s special boots with jet nozzles underneath! 

I am not sure I’ve seen a flyboard in person, definitely not during a show.

Brickbeard’s Watersports Stunt Show is fairly light on characters, but heavy on performances and stunts on Lake Eloise.

The ski pyramid always reminds me of the old Cypress Gardens shows. There is also barefoot skiing, which originated in Winter Haven in the 1940s  – right here, where guests watch Brickbeard’s Watersports Stunt Show.

Calico Jade is the new female pirate.

There are some fire effects and also a few very loud booms. They can be startling. 

Here is a look at the ship after one of the booms.

Captain Brickbeard and Calico Jade met with the two hosts of the show outside the theater.

We look forward to seeing the show again on our next visit to LEGOLAND Florida!
