Well, I'm sad to see these shows change, but I'm still going to buy a SeaWorld platnium pass and visit several of their parks around the country this year and give the company my support. I've always loved SeaWorld and Busch Gardens and hope they can turn things around financially. Hopefully 2017 is the year they bounce back!

As for what to do about attendance? Maybe $28.00 for two hot dogs, two bags of chips and two sodas is a bit much?

Yeah, considering that SeaWorld's food has never been all that good.

Just got back from our annual trip to Florida, managed to get to SeaWorld this time to try out "Mako".
I did appreciate that even Florida tried to make me feel as though I was back home in Scotland...and so rained for the day we went to the park....which minus the heat....was just like the motherland!!! The upside to this was the park was very quiet, so gave me a few different rides with no wait.

I enjoyed Mako, rode front, middle and back. I enjoyed the front the most but probably because the rain was pretty heavy at this point and it made for a different ride experience being pelted by raindrops at 60+ mph! It was an incredibly smooth ride and was getting good reports from the riders that day ( a lot of Brits over on holiday).
Manta was also walk on all day, I love Manta is always different this time.

Regarding the food, we did the "all day dining" which was nothing more than "OK"...but my gripe was the children's options that they give with this. We went to the Fajita restaurant for supper and yet Fajitas weren't included as a kids option...just "mac and cheese" or "chicken nuggets"!!! I would have thought that some kids "might" want a bit more choice than that...especially in a place that is offering something that is hardly what you would call "exotic". I was not overly impressed...and doubt we will do it again.

Loved our trip as always (did Disney and a Disney cruise). We will be back next February as always...when usually we should be shivering away in the frozen north. They broke all sort of temperature records this year though while we were away (heat wise)! The folks from Pennsylvania we bumped into were joking that FLorida was colder than Philadelphia!!!

Re: Dolphin Days vs Blue Horizons, which shows better? SeaWo

Dolphin Days is a new show so it is extremely unlikely that anyone can tell if they prefer it to Blue Horizons.

I don't know your guests, nor do I know more about Dolphins Days than has been released by SeaWorld. You have to decide if your guests prefers a more entertainment driven show (Blue Horizons) or the new show that is more edu-tainment (Dolphin Days).

Apparently Journey to Atlantis reopened after it's refurbishment, but all the figures are motionless and there is only one music track looping through the entirety of the ride.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

My guess is the theatrical just has to be reset. Every once in a while it would freak out and do exactly that. Operations department doesn't handle that so sometimes it takes some time to get it to sync back up. Just a guess though. I haven't been to SeaWorld in years. // Source: former JTA host
