    The dolphin show at Atlanta Aquarium is much better than this one.

    Amazing show! Literally brought tears to my eyes. I loved watching the dolphins jump - there were so many of them! They looked healthy & like they were having fun too. I recommend this show for sure!

    Best show out of all shows

    After all the hulla bellu about black fish it still seems as though the trainers care about these animals.

    One of the nicest stadia at the park. Sit near the top and by the edge for an awesome view of the bird trainers working their magic.

    You know something is wrong when my 7yo is like, "Where are the *other* mammals?" ie NOT HUMANS.

    Janet Chang · August 7, 2013
  • May V.

    Yes!!! We're here for dolphins not humans dressed as exotic birds!!

    Sit near the center for a better view!

    Combination aquatic acrobatics and dolphins. Must do!

    OC Food Diva · May 25, 2013

    The dolphins were cool, but the birds got short shrift in favor of arealists doing tricks. They were impressive and all, but I wanted to see the birds do more than one fly-by apiece!

    Julie Barman · April 9, 2013
  • Hethalein M.

    The show has a "story" now & it is not very interesting. Wish they would bring the good ole dolphins jumping through hoops back. Get to the stadium 20-30 mins early(peak season) to get a good seat

    Fills up fast on the weekends. Get there early.

  • Shade W.

    I will admit, the stunts were nice... However, it lacked the dolphins that they hype you up about. The bird lady was kind of creepy, hovering over the crowd.

    Sorry Sea World, I have been to this show 3 times and disliked it every time... The old show was not only entertaining but educational. In the same time I have seen every other show over 10 times.

    Nick · January 13, 2013
  • Nicole M.

    People are so negative. My five year old LOVED the show! It was AMAZING! I'm a dolphin lover, and the pilot whales are beautiful. Want to see more dolphins?! Go to the Dolphin encounter.

    Nicole Morales · November 23, 2012

    I don't know what people are talking about. This show Wass crazy good!!! Lots of dolphins and the story was cute. I enjoyed it!

    More dolphins less humans please.

    It's not that good.

    Think we might skip this one next time

  • Michael M.

    Weird show...makes no sense...nice to see the dolphins though.

    Michael M. · August 6, 2012

    Soak zone = BEST zone!!

    @SDWIFEY · June 16, 2012
  • Tom H.

    Lose the birds, people dressed as birds, and just stick with the dolphins.

    Tom Herman · June 8, 2012
  • Elaine K.

    First 12 rows will get wet. Bring it on!

    The stage is so beautiful

    Unfortunately, kids 11 & under dnt write reviews on this site. If they did, it would be positive. Everything is geared towards the kids just like any other park. Let the Yelp guys leave hater comments

    Danny Mangilinan · October 9, 2011
  • Ashley W.

    Get their early for good seats!!

    Ashley Wright · September 20, 2011

    Needs more dolphins and less cirque de la mer

    Missy Bissy · September 17, 2011
  • Jennifer S.

    Very cool show. They use the Cirque de la Mer acrobats with the dolphins and other animals. Super cool!

    Jennifer Sobetzer · August 25, 2011
  • Richard G.

    Seaworld should leave the acrobatics to cirque de la mer.

    Richard G · August 13, 2011
  • Angela V.

    Don't sit in soak zone unless it's hot out, we were living in fear of getting wet the whole time, so cold!! Good show tho ESP if u read all the other comments and have low expectations

    Angela Vella · August 12, 2011
  • Joy D.

    Best part is when the Beluga whales come out and splash you!

    Joy D. · July 15, 2011
  • Robin M.

    What can I say the Dolphins had the humans trained doing tricks and stuff

    Robin Montalvo · July 12, 2011
  • David K.

    That's 25 minutes of my life I'll never get back. And I want it back.

    What is this?! Disneyland? I came to see dolphins. Not people dressed as birds.

    Peeps · June 18, 2011
  • Chandrasekhar M.

    Showtime! If you are looking for dolphins forget it...there are many humans in this show compared to animals

    Chandrasekhar Manda · June 2, 2011
  • Cassandra A.

    Man, foursquare haters gonna hate! I thought the show was awesome! Neat costumes and acrobatics, and music. I really enjoyed how they got the birds involved. Lovely show!

    Cassandra Ann · May 19, 2011

    Show is more bout birds than dolphina

    Morris Milchman · April 22, 2011

    I was a little worried about this show cause of the tips, but I think you will like it!

    Michael A-vH · March 15, 2011

    Dolphin part is pretty cool, the interpretive dance and music could go away.

    Jonathan Todd · March 15, 2011
  • K G.

    Needs more dolphins!

    K Golder · March 10, 2011
  • Maddie

    This show is crazy. You seriously have to be on something to understand it! I miss the regular dolphin show. If it ain't broke don't fix it!

    Maddie · November 3, 2010
  • Nettey F.

    I left this show completely bewildered. Only saw dolphins for about 5 minutes while I saw strange lady in parrot costume swinging around for the entire show. Boring.

    Nettey Farol · September 28, 2010
  • Heather M.

    The trainers have way more fun than the audience.

    Heather Mo · September 25, 2010
  • Janet C.

    This show is proof that Sea World has jumped the shark. Please don't try to be like Disneyland or Cirque du Soleil. It's such a turn off. This show makes me not want to come back to SeaWorld. Ever.

    Janet Chang · September 7, 2010
  • Fern M.

    So not worth waiting! You see the dolphins foe 2 seconds of the show!

    For a dolphin show it's full of people dressed up as birds doing stunts to overly dramatic music. Cirque De la met part deux.
