Jaws on the Water in Texas

You Can Now Watch Jaws While Floating in a Dark Lake If You'd Like to Soil Your Swimsuit

If you've seen Jaws so many times that it's lost its chilling effect, here's a way to boost the fear factor way up: try watching Jaws in a lake while dangling your legs in open water. Fun, right? Also: totally terrifying, right?

The Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX, along with Birth.Movies.Death have dreamed up this debilitating nightmare situation they're calling a "dive in," during which viewers float out into Lake Travis at Volente Beach Water Park in inner tubes and watch Steven Spielberg's shark-centric thriller projected on screen.

What's more, scuba divers skulk around in the dark water, unseen and undetected, and grab at the dangling legs of innocent movie-watchers. Soiled swim trunks ensue.

Available between June 30 and July 23, the $55 tickets include the following:

  • A shark-themed inner tube that is yours to keep.
  • Access to the water slides, volleyball, the Lazy Lagoon, and more at the Volente Beach Water Park from 6-8:30 p.m.
  • The in-lake screening of Jaws (or, depending on the night, Jaws 2, Jaws 3 in 3D, or Jaws: The Revenge).
  • Plus, as the website states, "the chance to be a floating shark snack for a squad of scuba divers to scare."

Of course, there's really nothing to fear because there are no sharks in Lake Travis . . . right?
