Jaws completely terrified me as a child and remains the reason I refuse to go into the ocean. You just never know when a great white shark might be swimming around just waiting for innocent tourists to devour. Right? If you thought just watching Jaws was scary enough, then you haven't experienced "Jaws on the Water" yet. Alamo Drafthouse has given you the opportunity to watch the Steven Speilberg classic in an inner tube with your feet dangling in the water of Lake Travis.

You probably thought there weren't any sharks in a lake...guess again. Okay fine, not real sharks. But there is a squad of scuba divers in the water that will make it seem like there might be great whites swimming beneath you during this one-of-a-kind experience. This is a can't miss summer activity for residents of Austin, Texas. The Volente Beach Resort and Beachside Billy's hosts the "dive-in" experience which has to be the best way to watch Jaws.

One of the best parts is you get full access to all of the Volente Beach attractions. Who wouldn't want to stop by the Lazy Lagoon or the Sidewinder before the movie starts? You get to choose from multiple tube options for your water experience or you can bring your own, just keep it 53 inches in diameter or less. There's also the option to buy a special tube onsite or use a loaner.

The doors will open at 6 pm for the first show on Saturday, June 8, and the movie starts at sunset.  You'll have ten chances during the summer months to come out for the show, and hopefully get to see the explosive finale that matches the film.

Don't worry, you can have a shark-ified experience outside of Texas as well. California, New Jersey, Florida, and other states have had similar viewings but Volente Beach has definitely been the most popular. Find your tickets here, if you dare.
