I can't help but admit that I'm a little disappointed about the announcement that Blue World might be cancelled. Look I'm a reasonable person, I understand why sea world keeps killer whales and I also know what an amazing job sea world does around the world with conservation and rescue of marine animals. However I've always thought that the tanks were too small for the whales, when I saw the announcement for Blue World I was very happy and was content to visit Sea World once again. However if they cancel it to focus more on rides, I will not be attending the park.

Note to SeaWorld- counting Atlantis you have 3 roller coasters in Orlando now, will adding a 4th increase your attendance? I doubt it. Adding family rides or rides for those 50 and over (who have more money to spend), or more concerts, may add more to your bottom line than catering just to teens and 20 year olds.

I take a Florida once a year and regardless of where I go in FL., I manage to do at least one day at Sea World. I sincerely hope that they do not dissolve Blue Horizons, but if it is to be progress must go on. I will continue to visit every year as long it is possible for me to do so. Thank you for the education that you supply.

You clearly have no idea what seaworld is all about then if you have visited and yet believe all of the lies in that propaganda movie. You need to listen more to the people on the front line, those devoting their lives to taking care of these animals.

Stupid tree huggers. Animals are mainly for entertainment and sometimes food. Who cares how they feel?

You Believed A Documentary Over SeaWorld? Yes There Was Trainers, Most Of Them Got Demoted So Left SeaWorld! Carol Ray NEVER WORKED WITH TILIKUM NOR AT SEAWORLD WHEN HE ARRIVED! SAMANTHA BERG NEVER GOT IN THE WATER WITH THE WHALES DURING SHOWS OR WORKED WITH TILIKUM! JOHN HARGROVE GOT DEMOTED TO SEALION STADIUM BEFORE LEAVING DUE TO BREAKING A PROTOCOL!

IM SHOCKED HOW SMALL MINDED YOU ARE

I wouldn't listen to animal "rights" activists, they lie. They want a world w/ zero animal interaction or use. In order to achieve their "dream" they will say and do anything, facts and truth just get in their way. I continue to support Seaworld and will never give any money or support to people or organizations who support the animal rights radical agenda.

"After watching blackfish"...."I am longer a seaworld patron". Oh dear, you're not another one that ACTUALLY believes the spin are you?

Being someone that loved seaworld specifically for it's aquatic animals I would not be impressed nor would I visit for the rides. I am more concerned with the health and safety of the killer whales. After watching blackfish, and as a child thinking the whales needed something bigger than a bathtub to swim in, I am longer a seaworld patron. Zoo is not what I would call seaworld, until those whales have more adequate housing I wouldn't even think about adding rides for park visitors or the need to make the shareholders pockets right. Your first responsibility should be the health and well being of the majestic, intelligent whales.
