My family (kids aged 7 and 9) was pleasantly surprised by the dolphin show. We went with somewhat low expectations, and they were exceeded. The dolphins were quite entertaining, and the trainers appeared to really care for the animals. The seal show was a little less exciting (ok, kind of boring), but it was brief, and then the dolphins came back out. The acoustics were horrid. You really couldn't hear the emcee at all. They also tried to auction off "artwork" created by the dolphins, which partially didn't go well because no one could understand the emcee. There was also a hard sell to buy a balloon on the way out. But, overall, it was a pleasant surprise to have this 45 minute show so easily accessible. My kids - and my husband and I - were thoroughly entertained. We did not get the VIP seating, and had no problem seeing anything.
