The people that are stupid enough to boycott the park aren't going to magically come back because they changed the dolphin show or the orca show. I feel like Sea World is really in a precarious position right now and they're not quite sure what to do to fix it.
I don't mind the changes but you're right about the people who are already boycotting. I've had some discussions with people who refuse to go to SeaWorld after the blackfish stuff and having the conversation is pointless because their minds are made up already.
Ringling brothers is not the perfect comparison because they had even more legal issues with states banning them but people complained about the elephants so much but once they were gone attendance reflected that the majority of people were going because of the elephants.
