King Of Darkness: Water ski’s best edge-of-your-seat event

There’s something about watching a jumper shatter the dark with a 200+ ft. leap behind a MasterCraft boat that makes the adrenaline pump on the dock and pulse through the crowd. The 2017 King Of Darkness is an edge-of-your-seat event, and you won’t want to miss it.

This unique event gives world-class athletes a stage to showcase their impeccable talents while promoting the sport and the high-energy lifestyle that accompanies it. The festivities not only include the experience of watching elite skiers, like Freddy Krueger who took the victory in 2016, battle it out for a cash prize jackpot, but also a whole slew of fun-filled activities, yummy eats and good times.

Turn it into a family outing and bring along the youngsters. We’ll have free rides, ice cream trucks, face painters and arts and crafts lined up for the kids to enjoy. And parents, we haven’t forgotten about you. You’ll have nine food, beer and wine trucks accompanied by two bands to get the good vibes flowing and make it a night to remember.

Join us at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 4 at Isles of Lake Hancock to watch the best skiers in the world showdown in all three events to take home the King Of Darkness crowns.

Lake Address:
Isleview Drive
Winter Garden, FL. 34787

    I went there, and estimate the crowd was 10x what I expected. Free admission, so hope they at least broke even via sponsors. Was like the early days of the Tour that was started by Rob Shirley in 1984.

    Oh, and Disney was kind enough to send up a spectacular fire works show that lasted a heck of a long time.
