Wonder Lake Water Show Ski Team Entertains Liberty Trails Residents
Summers at Liberty Trails are made more spectacular by being just seven miles from the #1 National Waterski Show Team. On most summer Friday nights, the Wonderlake Waterski Team shows guests a riotous water experience, where you can see four-tiered water ski pyramids, multiple skiers performing helicopters and front flips, gorgeously costumed girls in the water ballet line, and barefoot stunts. The private lake is open for these free shows during the idyllic summer months. Many of the team members go on to ski professional and compete on the world stage, and Liberty Trails residents can enjoy them all summer long.
In 1955, eight teenagers rallied their energy and resources to found the Wonder Lake Water Ski Club, when their first purchase, a Saucer, cost them .80 each. The club grew in members and in equipment until in 1959, they performed their first show. Thirty years later, in 1986, the team began competing in tournaments and has earned Champion status four times. These days, the team boasts over 140 members, ranging in age from five to 65, and performing a variety of roles. In fact, half the team is support staff, helping to run the shows as boat drivers, dock or sound crew or costume committee.
Wonder Lake Water Shower Ski Team performs most Fridays between Memorial Day and Labor Day, for free. At Center Beach, a private property opened for the shows, on Wonder Lake, locals pick their spots and watch the skiers spin, jump, flip and more. Attendees can make donations to help offset the performance costs.
Liberty Trails residents are just a fifteen minute drive from this fun summer show. When the show ends, rest easy knowing that home is right around the corner. In fact, Liberty Trails is convenient to other McHenry Country attractions like golf courses, lakes, parks and more. These one and two-story homes have two to four bedrooms and up to three baths, in customizable plans that suit every kind of family. Ten home plans are available in this master planned community, with GE appliances, Moen fixtures and trim choices.
