Lake Eola, downtown’s iconic centerpiece, will be the headquarters for Soaked.  World champion water skiers, competing for the sport’s largest purse – $100,000 – will be the featured entertainment.  Live music on three stages, car and motorcycle shows, skate park, carnival rides, food and more will round out the festival’s things to do. 
Daytime activities include wake boarding and slalom skiing competitions, while in the evening a spectacular Night Jump, set on illuminated Lake Eola, shines as the grand finale.  During the Night Jump jumpers brave speeds up to 35mph and execute soaring leaps that can reach over 200 feet high. 
Tickets for Soaked are $15 per day and can be purchased here.
