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.
Yeah I meant I get it from the standpoint of it either being a budget cut or as part of their image shift, but I'm with you in that I'm not sure it will do anything to reverse their attendance issues. I'm sure it was frustrating that they opened Mako in a year when Orlando park attendance in general was considered to be somewhat stagnant.
Like I said, it's especially sad given the great lineup of coasters SWO and BG have. Reading this board the past few weeks has gotten really depressing, concerning Central Florida parks between Universal's apparent screen-ification (if they replace Dragons it'd better be with a physical/outdoor ride) and SW/BG's tailspin. GIHBF!
