Published: January 25, 2010 at 1:21 PMThis is my favorite show at Sea World!
Published: January 25, 2010 at 2:18 PMBest show in Sea World in both the San Diego and Orlando locations. The show is funny and the animals are great in it. Unlike Believe, the show is actually centered around the animals. It's also important to note that the night time versions of the show are excellent.
Published: January 25, 2010 at 3:19 PMCould very well be the best animal show around, a 9-Outstanding on the scale.
The mime alone is worth watching, and although the performance features many of the corny gags theme park shows are known for, it delivers them with a surgeon's precision. Sure, it may be more incredible to watch a dolphin or whale act on a human's whim, but it's not nearly as entertaining as this. Sea lions and otters were born comedians.
Oh, and walruses. Also very funny.

Published: January 25, 2010 at 4:10 PMthis is ok to see once but i cant see this over and over..even once a year is too much unless the show is changed. i go every fall and kids w/ us love this show but i remember all the jokes and everything from the year before and its just as cheesy..this year i rode kracken few times & journey to atlantis while the rest of my party saw the show..
Published: January 25, 2010 at 6:06 PMa good all round show, very cheesy but i like it beacuse of that. it knows what it is and the animals are very well trained and quite funny. get there 5 or 10 minutes earlier so you can see the mime he is hilarious.
Published: January 25, 2010 at 6:10 PMAlso my favorite show at Sea World. I've always been a fan of Clyde and Seymour. The dolphin and Shamu shows are great and all, but I'll take this one anyday.
Published: January 26, 2010 at 3:48 AMThis is always good fun and , as has already been mentioned, the pre-show mime is not to be missed.
Published: January 26, 2010 at 8:17 AMClyde and Seymour have been around a long time. I remember watching Clyde and Seymour at the old Sea World in Ohio when I was a lad. I have a VHS recording of one from around 1989. The theme was a haunted house/murder mystery story.

The animal behaviors and gags aren't the things to see over and over, but how the trainers handle whatever the animals throw at them. The shows that the animals do what & when they are supposed to go quick but are always the most boring ones. I even heard of a show the trainers did all by themselves one day because all the animals were in a rut and the stadium was packed - the show must go on.
The question is, when are they ever going to be allowed to swap this show out for another one? The San Diego sea lion show has changed three times in the last six years and C&STPI has been going strong for a total of what 14?! They were supposed to get a new show after Blue Horizons went in, then it was Believe instead, followed by A'lure. Sheesh - enough already give em some new material to work with PLEASE. I'm just hoping there isn't any cirque elements or all schmaltzy. It needs to stay true to the animal behaviors and stay the comedy relief that the show is.
have to concur - Sea Lions Tonight is the best! IF anyone is ever at SW in the summer, you must stick around for this.
