If you’ve always loved watching the high-flying acrobatics and incredible tricks of dolphins and macaws in the water show “Blue Horizons” at SeaWorld Orlando you might want to get in one final viewing before the Orlando theme park replaces it with a new educational dolphin show.
After an 11-year run, “Blue Horizons” will close its curtains for good and make way for “Dolphin Days.” In the new production, the audience will learn more about the personalities of the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. Just like in “Blue Horizons” macaws and other tropical birds will make appearances.
“Dolphin Days” also includes an interactive element for audiences. During each show, one lucky volunteer will be selected from the audience to enjoy an up-close encounter with one of the dolphins and a green-winged macaw.
The new show is a part of the new focus on education at SeaWorld Orlando. We learned last year that the park would stop breeding Orcas and is phasing out of killer whale shows altogether. SeaWorld Orlando will also be opening the new Dolphin nursery this summer. The attraction will feature multi-level viewing and new lifting floors for easier accessibility to the dolphins.
Stay tuned for more details on ‘Dolphin Days.” In the meantime you can catch the colorful and highly acrobatic show Blue Horizons one final time with discounted SeaWorld Orlando tickets right here on Best of Orlando. The last day to experience the show is March 31.
