Waterworld: A Live Sea War Spectacular is an attraction based on the 1995 film Waterworld found at Universal Studios Hollywood (1995), Universal Studios Japan (2001) and Universal Studios Singapore (2010). The original attraction opened at the same time as the film.[1] Although the film was considered by many to be a disappointment, the show was highly praised, winning a 1996 Thea Award from the Themed Entertainment Association. The attraction remains highly rated by park guests.[2]

Adapted by Ben Hurst. The attraction's story occurs after the events of the movie, beginning with Helen's return from "Dryland" to get her friends from the "Atoll", and includes the characters Helen, the Deacon, and the Mariner as well as several "Atollers" and "Smokers". The show is 16 minutes long and includes stunts on water, land, and overhead, supported by many pyrotechnic, flame, water, and other special effects, including the explosive crash landing of the seaplane (referred to as a "Skyboat" by the Deacon).[3][4] The stunt-show's unique soundtrack was crafted from snips from the movie score.[5]

The seating is in three sections of arena seating. The front seats are the "Soak Zones", which are the target of splashes from the Jet-Skis and various wet special effects. The seats after are the "Splash Zones", where some splashes will land.

As of 2006, the actors in the Hollywood version of the show introduce themselves at the end and give some background on what they've done in the past.
