SeaWorld's latest version of its iconic Shamu show replaced the previous version, Believe, in 2011. The orcas (killer whales) still get much of the audience soaking wet, but there's a message about conservation and protecting the environment in between all the splashing.

It's a good show because, after all, it features graceful and beautiful killer whales. However, I was a little disappointed in the lack of real action by the animals - I wasn't as interested in watching the video. In my opinion, the Blue Horizons show with the dolphins is more entertaining in every way! - Christy Hall

One Ocean is a good show and the orcas are truly amazing. However, Blue Horizon offers more variety and is, imho, a better show. - Blake Hoskinson

I dont like this show is really boring beliave its better 2/10 - Giovanny Cruz

Just an extremely ridiculously bad "recovery" of the crummy Believe show. The trainers danced badly, the video was the main part of the show, it showed whales doing tricks they didn't do in the water. The whales just went up to them as if they were begging for food for the entire show! 2/10 - D H

I like the new water features,but the trainers are still out of the water and video takes up half the show...it just isn't as good as before. - Hermione Potter

10/10. Everybody had a fantastic time. Difference I noticed was no volunteer was apart of the show anymore. We sat in the fourth row closest to middle where the whales come up on every so often. I think people get wet more than ever now, had a blast with that. - Nick Dakuginow

I absolutely loved this show. My favorite show at SeaWorld Orlando used to be Blue Horizons, but this new Shamu show has definitely taken the top spot. It is a very exciting, action packed, just all out fun show. I prefer One Ocean over the previous Shamu show Believe because the new show isn't trying to be overly dramatic like Believe was, the new show has a more feel good attitude along with a lot better musical soundtrack. I will definitely catch this show again the next time I'm as SeaWorld. - Justin Kermgard
