Awfulness
Jul 2020 • Couples
It was terrible to see those beautiful animals stucked in such a small place. The noise was so loud that I imagine it might be stressful for the animals to listen it the entire day. Awful experience.

Incredibly loud, but really great!
Aug 2019 • Family
We went for the Monday 13:00 show: two dolphins were already before the beginning in the pool and made some funny tricks 😍
The moderation and the show overall were almost unbearably loud. No matter where you’re seated 😳
But the performance of the animals - three dolphins, two sea lions and two polar whales 😍 was indescribably great and fun. They jumped, danced, played ball, transported the trainers and even SANG!
Amazing...

Don’t buy any combo tickets- the rest is pitiful! Not worth a dime. The so called „butterfly garden“ is just a tiny place below a staircase. And the so called „oceanarium“ is just a larger fish club. So save the money and just go for the dolphin show.

They let two dolphins draw a picture and auction it just then and there. The winner gets a free boat ride in the pool, drawn by a dolphin 😍a girl of 9-10y got it and it was actually really cute!

So the high evaluation is given to the animals and their trainers. Otherwise the setting is rather basic (to put it mildly) and still very a Soviet-ic 😏

Wonderful show

The dolphin (and others) was wonderful. Amazing, how they manage to swirl, throw balls, and carry their trainers. Small advice - if you want to seat closer to the pool - buy tickets earlier.

Well produced, talnted animals and trainers

I really do deplore the exploitation of animals for entertainment, but that being said, and since I did pay money to watch these animals being exploited, I found this to be a very enjoyable show. As far as I could tell, the animals were well treated and well cared for, and performed wonderfully. I have seen San Diego Sea World shows, and this was definitely of that caliber. Unfortunately I don't understand enough Russian to understand all the patter, but I don't think I missed too much. I would recommend seeing it, as the shows will go on regardless of your personal views.
