Killer Whale

SeaWorld will resume its “Dine With Shamu” killer-whale show at its San Antonio park on Feb 26 after a year-long hiatus following the attack and death of trainer Dawn Brancheau at SeaWorld Orlando.

Like most kids, I was beyond excited to see the Shamu show back in the ‘80s, but I was NOT the type of kid to volunteer to climb a ladder, lean my head way over the tank and patiently wait for a big tongue kiss from a 6-ton killer whale. I was impressed with the graceful orcas and the brave trainers, but like most things in life, there was an element of danger that kept me in my seat. Would I take my kids to see a Shamu show now, after what happened? Sure, but I wouldn’t let him kiss them!

Limited admission to the “Dine With Shamu” show will include a buffet meal and a training demo with one of the park’s whales. And if all goes well in San Antonio, SeaWorld will reopen the show at its Orlando and San Diego parks later in the spring.
